This morning the UK Ministry of Defence launched the SERVE (Service for Experienced, Re-joiner and Volunteer Engagements) job-finder website.
UK MoD Notification, 07:00 24 June 2020: Visit the SERVE website to discover reserve, re-joiner and wider opportunities in the UK Armed Forces and to stay connected with defence. The website is free and easy to use. It can be used by all regular and reserve service personnel, Veterans; and anyone interested in staying connected with defence.
SERVE modernises the experience of finding opportunities in the armed forces by using technology, which will help to increase the adaptability and sustainability of the military workforce so it can adjust to the demands of defence capabilities whilst delivering greater efficiency and effectiveness.
SERVE advertises Reserve, re-joiner and wider opportunities across all three services, including joint organisations, in one place. It is available through any internet-connected device such as a mobile, desktop or tablet.
Users can explore opportunities across the full range of reserve commitment types, from full time reserve service and additional duties commitment, to short-term tasks; along with re-joiner opportunities. Searches can be refined by Service, location, branch/cap badge, rank, engagement type or length, specialism, or any combination of these. Once registered, users can set up notifications, so they receive email alerts when new, relevant, opportunities are posted.
SERVE’s information panels will cover a range of subjects from defence announcements and recruitment campaigns for trade skills, through to signposts to tools and support on other websites.
SERVE will continue to be developed and updated over time to offer users the best experience.
