About City Veterans CIC
In 2014, a Committee was formed when the in-house Veterans’ Networks of several Financial Services firms identified a dislocation in the hiring of Veterans and the raising of funds for Service charities in the City of London. Evolving from this, the City Veterans CIC (a non-profit Community Interest Company) now runs recruiting and fundraising events with its members, supporting over a dozen different charities and raising material funds for much needed causes.
