Unemployment & Forces leavers

Leaving the Armed Forces and being unemployed on CivvyStreet can be hard to cope with. Fortunately, help is available from statutory support services like the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) for eligible Armed Forces leavers and Jobcentre Plus. Also some ex-forces organisations and charities are able to assist your job search. They can give you help and advice and some of these organisations will also have job databases where you can find something to suit you.

Unemployment - Benefits support

If you are out of work you need to register a claim for benefit support as soon as possible, or you could be overwhelmed by accommodation and other living costs. If you are looking for work or working less than 16 hours a week, you may also be entitled to Jobseekers Allowance. Check the link on this page to find out what you are eligible for.
