Ex-militarycareers.com has been named a finalist in the Business Enterprise category of the 2017 Soldiering On Awards.
Ex-militarycareers.com was one of 46 finalists in 10 categories honoured at a House of Lords reception on 9 February. The evening was hosted by the charity’s patron, the Rt Hon Earl Howe PC, and celebrated individuals and organisations for their inspirational and outstanding achievements in support of the Armed Forces Community.
“The Soldiering On Awards recognise the amazing contribution that former members of the Armed Forces – and animal partners – continue to make to society and also those individuals, charities and groups in the wider community who support their journey,” said Earl Howe. “We believe that we are all part of one community and are stronger together supporting each other.”
Nominated by work colleague James Lawrence, the Business Enterprise Award recognizes an individual, group or organisation that has demonstrated sustained innovation, providing business and enterprise solutions to challenges faced by service men and women, their families and the Armed Forces Community as a whole.
The nomination read:
“The free-to-use jobs board helps ease the transition and resettlement process for former military personnel as they begin their journey of establishing a civilian career. Profits generated from Ex-Military Careers are reinvested back into the charity, making contributions to industry courses, travel, attire and various other employment solutions.”
Finalists were nominated by members of the public and more than 40 charities and not-for-profit organisations either representing or associated with the wider Armed Forces Community. Winners are selected by a distinguished Independent Judges Panel, co-chaired by General the Lord Dannatt GCB CBE MC DL and Debra Allcock Tyler, Chief Executive of the Directory of Social Change.
This year’s winners will be announced at the 2017 Soldiering On Awards on Friday, 24 March at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel, London.
The Soldiering On Through Life Trust encourages support for the UK’s Armed Forces Community by nationally recognising the achievements of groups or individuals supporting this Community through the annual Soldiering On Awards.
