We are delighted to be working with our partners ThisWeekinFM to host a not-for-profit event on Thursday 10 March at Old Trafford, Manchester. This unique event is exclusively for those who are leaving or have left the Armed Forces and seeking a new meaningful career.

The aim of this event is to promote the huge number of opportunities for Veterans and Service Leavers within Facilities Management, Built Environment, Property, Workplace and related sectors & let employers explain why our community is such a good fit for them.

A number of inspirational speakers will share their experiences of working after leaving the Armed Forces, some in FM, as well as highlight the work JobOppO are doing to change the narrative around veteran employment generally and demonstrate FM as a go to sector.

The event will conclude with some drinks and an opportunity to network and chat with our speakers and guest employers.
