Veterans typically have led colleagues, accepted direction from others and operated as part of a small team.
Veterans are perceived as being trustworthy, dependable, drug-free and having a strong work ethic.
Companies, especially those that emphasize safety, appreciate veterans’ experience following established procedures.
Companies value veterans’ occupational skills, job-specific experiences and understanding of the military community.
Veterans are accustomed to performing and making decisions in dynamic and rapidly changing circumstances.
Line managers’ report that veterans “get it done.”
Some organisations hire veterans largely because other veterans have already been successful in their organisation. Veterans demonstrate that they share company values and fit the organisational culture.
Veterans are accustomed to working in difficult environments, and to traveling and relocating.
Veterans stick around longer and are loyal to their brand.
Organisations that hire veterans are entitled to a 12 month National Insurance Contribution (NIC) holiday, saving thousands.
An apprenticeship is a genuine job with an accompanying assessment and skills development programme. 20% of their time is to be spent in off-the-job training. There is no age limit to become an apprentice and courses are available up to Masters level.
Designed by the government to increase employers’ investment in apprenticeships and workforce development. Introduced in April 2017.
Companies that have a payroll of over £3million have to pay 0.5% of their UK payroll into a levy fund. Companies that don’t qualify as ‘levy payers’ can still access up to 95% of training and assesment costs for each apprentice hired.
The levy is set at a rate of 0.5% (with a £15K allowance) of a businesses total payroll, and it’s collected monthly by PAYE. The government applies a 5% top-up.
The money on your levy pot can only go towards the training and assessment of the apprenticeship. It cannot be spent on associated costs such as wages.
If employers do not spend their levy funds after 24 months, they will be ‘lost’ and made more widely available to non-levy paying companies. Employers can choose to transfer up to 25% of their levy fund for other organisations’ to use.
