Married to the Job

September 26, 2016

When you are married to a member of the Armed Forces you could say you are married to their job too. And that can make finding work for yourself more difficult.

Having to move around as a result of Service deployment can mean spouse’s CVs have more gaps in them than others in the jobs market.

Which is why organisations like Recruit for Spouses can be such a help to Service spouses seeking a job, by giving guidance and advice on how to make the best impression.

The organisation has already proved its value in the south of the country and is now offering support to those in the Leuchars and Arbroath area.

Recruit for Spouses acts as an intermediary between local employers, getting the low down on the kinds of jobs they need filling, and the service spouses who are seeking employment. The support offered includes help with job applications, writing CVs and honing interview skills.
