Employment and training

Employment and training opportunities

Forces Families Jobs (FFJ) is the go-to place for training and employment for family members of currently serving UK military personnel. Through FFJ you will be able to apply for jobs and access employment and training opportunities with companies and organisations who are forces family-friendly. You can use this website with confidence in knowing that employers have signed the Armed Forces Covenant or are able to demonstrate their commitment to the Armed Forces.

This is your gateway to accessing information about acquiring new skills, upgrading your existing skills or applying directly to employers who are understanding of the unique challenges that come with being a family member of a serving person.


Volunteering is a great way to help your local community, build your CV and create new social networks. It can be a few hours a month or a few days a week and the variety of different roles is huge.

Details of local volunteering opportunities can be found on our volunteering pages.

For countywide volunteering opportunities contact Voluntary Action Rutland.
