Forces Recruitment Services is the original British ex military recruitment consultancy specialising in finding jobs for UK armed forces personnel.

As a wife or husband of a serving member of the Army, Navy or Airforce, life involves constant change and plenty of spouses forgo their careers, hitting hurdles when it comes to keeping a job that works around all the moving about and deployments.  Heledd Kendrick, herself the wife of a serving Army officer, became so frustrated with the lack of jobs for forces spouses that she started her own initiative, a social enterprise called Recruit for Spouses (RFS).  Launched earlier this year, Recruit for Spouses.co.uk recognises an enormous talent pool of British service wives, who, given the chance, would be an asset to any business.  Why?  Because they are by nature motivated, flexible and have the ability to juggle ten things at once. 

Recruit for Spouses offers businesses the chance to access this vast potential workforce by advertising their jobs direct to this unique community.  Spouses upload their CVs, whilst employees advertise their vacancies and the RFS team of volunteers match the two together.  The types of jobs available are wide ranging, from shop floor to board room level, including contract work, part-time and full-time vacancies, job-shares as well as working from home roles.  So whether spouses are looking for a job locally or want to find work that is flexible or based from home so that they can fit it around children, postings or deployments, Recruit for Spouses helps.

Joining is free, we offer our members CV writing/job interview mentoring and invite them to benefit from a collaboration with Dress for Success, a charity that helps to boost confidence though style advice.
