Recruit for Spouses - Returning Talent to the Workplace

Most modern families in the UK recognise that where once a second income might have been an advantage, it is increasingly a ‘must-have’, and military families are no exception. Too frequently, skilled, career-minded spouses are overlooked in the workplace in favour of candidates perceived to be more geographically stable.

Recruit for Spouses’ message to business is simple: recent changes throughout the British military mean its families are more settled then ever before, and Forces’ spouses deserve rewarding income opportunities from a level playing field.

If you’re a military spouse with aspirations of saving for a house deposit or funding a mortgage so your family can put down roots, we can help you to make it happen.
