How We Help

RFEA is the leading military charity provider of employment services and jobs to Service leavers and ex-Forces personnel.

Our vision is to assist these individuals in finding a job and remaining in employment for the rest of their working lives. We have an unparalleled understanding of the skills and ambition that ex-Forces and Service leavers bring to the employment market. We have a proven track record of helping all ranks, trades, backgrounds and services to find and remain in high-quality employment from the moment they leave the Armed Forces.

We provide a high-quality, no-cost recruiting service to thousands of employers across the UK and overseas, giving them ready access to high-calibre skilled and talented Service leavers and ex-Forces candidates. We work with employers from the largest multi-national to local organisations and regional subject matter experts (SMEs) across a diverse range of industries including construction, marketing, telecommunications, IT, logistics, oil and gas, human resources and project management.

Our expertise across the Service leaver community and our strong links with employers enables us to provide a constant flow of high-quality job opportunities, tailored to meet the needs of both parties.
