An Employers' Guide to Hiring Veterans 

This guide offers advice and guidance to employers on how to recruit, retain and support the career development of veterans. 

There are over 2 million veterans in the UK, with over 13,000 individuals leaving the Armed Forces each year. The majority of those leaving service are of working age, in search of securing the next step in their civilian career after service

National Insurance Relief

Another benefit of hiring veterans is the 12 months of National Insurance contribution holiday available to those employing a veteran in their first civilian position after service. Find out more online about your eligibility as an employer and how to claim this relief:
