‘I found it hard to get interviews and found when I did employers couldn't be flexible enough with regards to childcare when my husband goes away. I spent 18 months applying for jobs and eventually gave up until I met Lucy and Wendy from NFF. They reminded me about Forces Families Jobs and showed me the positives about being a military wife and how these can translate to my CV.' AnnMarie, Royal Marines spouse
We’re delighted to be able to share AnnMarie’s story of how she found work through Forces Families Jobs. She will be starting as a teaching assistant at a school in Dundee after Easter this year.
We asked her about the challenges of finding work, how she found the process of using the site, what getting a job means to her, whether her new employer has been understanding of the military lifestyle and what advice she has for other spouses.
See what she has to say...and please share your success stories with us too.
