The Royal Navy recognises the transition from “warship to citizenship” can be an anxious and challenging time which involves far more than simply honing job finding skills. As such this section aims to assist Serving personnel in making a smooth and successful transition to civilian life.
Leaving the Service
For all Service leavers who entered their resettlement period after 15 March 2010, JPA is to be used to register for resettlement and to manage your resettlement programme.
Service leavers should have their first interview with their IERO or SRA on entering their resettlement phase, which is two years before release or upon submitting notice.
Having been briefed by the IERO/SRA all personnel who are leaving the Service should answer YES to all three questions on JPA regarding their Resettlement. This includes the question on releasing their information for use in statistics issued by the Department of Work and Pensions.
Career Transition Partnership
The Career Transition Partnership (CTP) is a partnering arrangement between Right Management Consultants and the Ministry of Defence created to successfully deliver enhanced resettlement services to all ranks and rates of the Armed Forces. The CTP website provides a plethora of information that focuses on issues ranging from housing to schooling from finances to relocation, alongside all aspects of eligibility, training, courses and available funding.
For further advice your first point of contact should be your local resettlement organization however further advice on financial assistance is available from the Naval Education Support section of this site and the Direct.gov website can offer guidance on your Curriculum Vitae, Job Seeking and Preparing for an Interview.
