Catch up with the latest Veterans Work Podcasts
With the Armed Forces fully demonstrating their skills during the Pandemic, Veterans Work has launched a series of podcasts designed to show the value that ex-service personnel can bring to business.
The podcasts are hosted by Kate Silverton with industry experts, veterans and business leaders. Topics include veteran employment, values and purpose, resilient people, skills for the future and the campaign’s calls to action.
Ex-military personnel offer an unparalleled talent that business leaders would be foolish not to harness. Our podcast guests illustrate how perfectly veterans’ values and behaviours complement so many roles from digital and tech to professional services. I was humbled as our veteran guests candidly brought to life their own stories as well as challenging perceptions and stereotypes. (Kate Silverton)
Podcast introductions are also given by The Minister for Defence People and Veterans, Leo Docherty MP, plus some celebrities and veteran allies: Joanna Lumley, Rory Underwood, Ray Winstone, Lt Gen James Swift-Chief of Defence People. There’s also an endorsement from WW2 veteran former Paratrooper Jimmy Knox.
The series also offers invaluable advice on how to make the transition from a military career, from selling yourself at interview to sharing your unique story with recruiters.
The podcasts are both audio and video recordings and are available to stream and download free on all Veterans Work channels including YouTube, and wherever you get your podcasts.
Veterans Work is a collaboration between Deloitte, Forces in Mind Trust and The Officers’ Association, and with significant input from Government via the Ministry of Defence and the Office for Veterans’ Affairs.
