Why employ a military spouse?

Military spouses are often overlooked or discriminated against as a pool of workers. But the truth is they can provide skills, experience, value and diversity that businesses should consider when hiring.

They are: highly flexible and adaptable

Military life includes regular moves, sometimes overseas. It is the military spouse who packs up the household, organising new schools, adapts to the new environment, new culture and new employment opportunities as well as settling the family.

They are already flexible, patient and resilient because they have had to be.

They are: skilled and highly educated

The CV belies their true skill set. Short-term jobs or gaps due to military moves give the wrong impression. The reality is they have learnt to pick up where they have left off in each job, they have learned to re-network in each and every new posting and new community therefore developing a broad and diverse skill set.

50% of military spouses are educated to degree level or above and yet 30% cannot find work. These are the men and women who have been the constant at home while their partner has prolonged absences. They have kept the family together, managed the finances, held down a job all the while dealing with the absence of their partner or uncertainty of where or when they will need to relocate.

Companies who value hard work, creativity, passion and resilience do not need to look much further than a military spouse.

Research proves military spouses are an untapped resource

The importance of providing military spouses with a platform to grow and progress their professional lives cannot be underestimated. We worked with Employers with The Employers Network for Equality and Inclusion to publish a report outlining the challenges facing military spouses, and why they make the best employees.

I wanted something more and not just a job, I saw the advert for the RFS liquid Workforce and thought that it would be the perfect stepping stone for getting me back into work without having to worry about getting posted.

I had no idea what a sourcing specialist was and today I have found a career that I love, a career not a job! I have found a new passion, learned new skills, met some incredible people and I owe it to RFS and AMS.

Kimberley Monroe

Flexible working has allowed me the opportunity to cut down on childminder costs because my job is flexible with school runs meaning I can drop my kids off myself before I start work. This means I can also work longer hours than I normally would be able to afford.

Gina Attrims

Flexible working has allowed me to have a career. I never thought it would be an option until my children were teenagers. I have my confidence, self-belief, and my independence.

Kim Williams

I had approached RFS with incredulity as I had been facing rejections. I registered with RFS and it was a quick process as I received a call from RFS for an opportunity soon after. I am a true testimony that amazing enterprises like RFS exist that support and recognize the capabilities of military spouses.
