veterans and military spouses to ‘Buddies’/mentors from the business community who have pledged to offer personal support.

The ‘Buddies’ come from avariety of backgrounds and levels of seniority.They’re primed and well positioned to give the inside track on their organisation, and share their experience of specific roles and the job application processes.

Richard, who has helped many thousands of people secure employment over the years, explains that: “Toaccess career advice and 1:1 support you just need to visit the Project Fortis website and create asimple profile –telling us your background, location, and the industries you want to explore, and then we put you in contact with the right people. Our focus is to connect you with people who are keen to help you succeed.

We already have afew thousand members, and the community is constantly growing as word spreads about some of the excellent employment outcomes.

People are using Project Fortis in different ways. Some have aspecific organisation or job role in mind, and just want to connect with, say HR managers because they know where they want to end up. Most of the time people connect with several Buddies/mentors at atime to get inspiration and explore opportunities with anumber of different organisations.

Often people need some very practical assistance with CV writing and preparation for interviews.

And increasingly,moral support is something that people tell us they value greatly.Going through the recruitment process is achallenge for anyone so having someone that can open doors, and give the right amount of support can prove invaluable in securing the job you want.

84% of people we’ve worked with tell us the relationships they’ve formed through Project Fortis have had asignificant impact on their job prospects, which is hugely satisfying for us. And we’re working continually to get more and more ambassadors on board to broaden the range of employment opportunities for veterans and military spouses.” 
