Providers of Armed Forces resettlement


The Career Transition Partnership (CTP) is a partnering agreement between the Ministry of Defence and Right Management, who are global career development and outplacement specialists.The CTP provides successful resettlement services for those leaving the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and Marines. They also operate as an intermediary service for employers wishing to hire Service leavers.To date, CTP has assisted over 160,000 Service leavers with the transition to civilian life and supported thousands of organisations looking to employ ex-Service personnel.

Depending on length of service, CTP offer free resettlement services to all ranks of the UK Armed Forces, including the Navy & Royal Marines, British Army and Royal Air Force – their aim is to help make the transition as smooth as possible.

CTP provide flexible support from two years before discharge, through to two years after. They provide a set of tools to enable individuals to market themselves confidently to employers and to get the most out of life outside the forces.

From creating a CV through to learning interview skills plus researching and applying for jobs, the CTP support can help  not just with the first civilian job, but throughout a post-service working lifetime.
