ERS Medical helps ex-forces back onto ‘Civvy Street’
ERS Medical has attended a British Forces Resettlement Services (BFRS) event designed to provide the armed forces community with employment opportunities when re-entering ‘civvy’ life.
The event, in Aldershot, was one in a series of ‘Military to Civilian’ BFRS events planned for this year. The fairs offer the chance for those in the armed forces to meet employers, find jobs, access self-employment opportunities, enrol in training schemes and get in touch with a whole raft of services specialising in supporting those embarking upon the resettlement process.
ERS Medical provides a comprehensive selection of training and higher education courses for people that work or want to work within the pre-hospital care, patient transport or specialist healthcare courier sector. The courses are delivered by experienced healthcare professionals ranging from paramedics to state-registered nurses and are not just dynamic in theory but also enrich learners with practical knowledge.
ERS Medical said “The event was a great success for us, we met lots of people thinking about leaving the forces, or already in the resettlement process, wondering which next steps to take in their careers.
“As we offer a wide variety of training and employment opportunities, designed to suit a range of requirements, we are confident there is something for everyone. Our work varies from front-line ambulance work to medical courier or patient transport service work. Our range of training courses also allows career progression to be at the forefront of our students’ minds allowing them to take their career as far as they desire.”
BFRS is a non-profit Community Interest Company working in the interests of the forces community. With 14,000 members, BFRS has created an armed forces network offering support to the forces community and their families during the transition process and for the rest of their careers, whichever path they choose.
