Women into employment networking evening 11th May 2023


25 Apr, 2023

The Forces Employment Charity is inviting women from the Forces community to attend an informal evening networking event on 11 May, ahead of its Women into Employment Conference next month.

Those attending the event will have the chance to meet and connect with employers and career experts who will be delivering support and expertise during the conference.

Co-hosted by Deloitte and the Forces Employment Charity, this informal evening will be the perfect opportunity to meet with potential employers in a relaxed environment. Staff from the Forces Employment Charity will welcome attendees throughout the evening, facilitate networking opportunities and answer questions about the charity’s services and support.

The Forces Employment Charity knows that finding the right role in the right organisation matters, making it invaluable to meet with employers and career experts, many of whom have successfully transitioned from the military themselves. This event offers an excellent opportunity to meet people invested in supporting women in the military community on their next career journey.

Who should attend?
