The aim of Transition is to signpost those Service Leavers who wish to settle in the East Midlands or East Anglia to information on Employment, Education, Health, Housing and Welfare (the links for which are located below).
The area covers the 12 counties from Lincolnshire down to Essex and eastwards of the M1, accessing the facilities available through the 97 local authorities along with the plethora of support agencies and charities that also act in support throughout this transition process and beyond.
Transition is more than what is traditionally called Resettlement. Your own Transition Journey is something that you must ‘drive’. You read the orders, you pack your kit, you pack your ammunition but it is not just about you; your partner, family and friends may also be affected when you leave the Service.
Leaving the Army can be a challenge, which is why all service leavers and their families receive support in making this transition to civilian life regardless of length of service. The Army’s intent is that all Service leavers achieve an effective transition from full-time military service into civilian life. The key skills and primary focus will be finding new employment and somewhere to live, whichever comes first.
On leaving a full-time career in the Army, have you considered that the nation still needs your commitment, experience and leadership skills? Have you thought about continuing your military service in the Army Reserve, or even becoming an Adult Instructor in the Army Cadet Force? If you have, then just check out the links on the Employment page.
