Fujitsu - Helping veterans to transition from the military to the
commercial sector

Fujitsu has a long-standing affiliation with the British Armed Forces that spans decades. Our extensive experience working within Defence and National Security, has enabled us to recognise the significant contribution that veterans and reserve personnel bring to the commercial sector.

For many years, we have helped Service Leavers to transition from military to civilian life, and have provided the opportunity for veterans to develop rewarding careers within our organisation. Our role in helping ex-military personnel to work within the commercial sector, is recognised by the UK MOD. We are exceptionally proud to say that we are Gold Award winners in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS), which was created to encourage UK employers to support Defence and inspire other businesses to do the same.

Gold Award Holder - Defence Employer Recognition Scheme

In recognition of our ongoing support and commitment to the UK Armed Forces, we are proud to hold a Ministry of Defence (MOD) Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award - the highest national level awarded to employers demonstrating advocacy for reservists, Armed Forces veterans (including wounded, injured and sick), military spouses/partners and military charities.

Forces Families Jobs and Fujitsu

Forces Families Jobs is an employment and training platform specifically created by The Army Families Federation (AFF) to provide family members, spouses and partners of UK Armed Forces personnel with a one-stop-shop where they can apply for jobs directly with employers signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant.

As a Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Member, we were invited to trial this new platform, and our Defence IT and National Security vacancies are now listed for potential applicants to see. In addition, we are proud to be one of only ten UK employers to feature in the Families Federation Magazine.

Armed Forces Week Boot Camp Challenge

Every year, during Armed Forces Week, we partner with local reservist units to host a boot camp to raise funds for SSAFA. The event is great fun for those taking part, but more importantly, it strengthens our relationship with local reservist units and raises much-needed funds for our charity SSAFA.

Last year 180 Fujitsu employees took part in teams of 10 and competed against each other in physical, leadership and team working tasks.

Fujitsu Military Transition and Talent Programme

The Military Transition and Talent Programme (MTTP) is an innovative initiative aimed at increasing the support we offer to high-calibre individuals transitioning from military to industry employment. Through a focused coaching and mentoring scheme, we enable chosen individuals to develop their business and commercial acumen to further increase their potential.

Individuals are given a project management position and receive additional mentoring and coaching from qualified and experienced DNS project management personnel to bridge any identified skills gaps.

“The interview went very well but at the time I was still employed by the RAF, so had to plan my exit strategy very carefully. Thankfully, Fujitsu was very tolerant and kept my job offer open for 6 months which worked out ideally.”

“...employers were also seeking experience, which I just did not have. Fujitsu was different in that they could recognise the traits and skills that I was bringing with me from the military, and even though they may not have been directly relevant they knew the value”
