Julie served in the Royal Navy for 22 years and left in 2004.
Unlike other employment agencies she felt that RFEA understood her military background and were able to recognise her skills and translate them in order to highlight vacancies which they thought she was suited to. They kept in regular contact noting that she intended to take a short career break before actively seeking employment in 2006.
Her current employer is Seafarers UK where Julie is a Fundraising Manager based in London and Portsmouth. Julie says, “The RFEA understands how daunting it can be for someone who has spent most of their working life in the Armed Forces.”
