When leaving the service it can be difficult to know what to do next, especially if you have served for a long period of time.
Having worked and been within a structured and highly focused environment for what can be many years, it might seem that the rest of the world is lacking when it comes to the same levels of commitment, and team work that you find in the forces.
All this can make transitioning to civilian life a lot harder than it needs to be. Transitional employment can act as a useful bridge to get you on the right track and also provide you with the skills and experiences of knowing the civilian life before you look to venture in to your next career or way of life.
A transitional employer can help with training and guidance as you ease back in to civilian life, they can also provide a positive reinforcement at times when there are issues that need to be address be this with understanding language and also the social environment to which you are returning.
