Awarded Gold in the MoD’s Employer Recognition Scheme and winner of the IWFM’s Social Value 2021 award, the JointForces@ISS programme has supported military service leavers, veterans and spouses in their transition to the civilian workplace since 2017 - with support networks made for and shared by armed forces alumni.

JointForces@ISS not only simplifies the transition, but introduces ex-military to an industry where their technical, problem-solving and team-building skills can prosper. With our support, the military community finds long-term career fulfilment, meet like-minded members of the service community and find extended support for their families and spouses.
