Civilian Employment

The White Ensign Association can help those from the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Royal Fleet Auxiliary communities looking for employment help and advice in a variety of ways.  As well as in-depth, personalised, one to one assistance, we also have a number of resources that our clients and others can use, that provide information in some key areas of employment, such as CV writing, preparation for starting a new business, interviewing, what to think about in the early stages of transition or career change planning, and much more.  Please visit the following links for some general information:


White Ensign Association  - You can find interesting articles in the reviews at this link.  ‘What really matters in a CV?’ and ‘The Art of Networking’ are in the 2015-16 edition, there is a  useful piece around what to think about when planning your employment transition in the 2018-18 review, and you can read how one Royal Navy Sailor made the transition from the Armed Forces to become Group Head of Recruitment at a Global company in just 6 years in the 2018-19 edition.  There are other stories of personal success and employment-related advice throughout all the editions so please explore them.  You can also find a series of employment articles on the WEA’s blog, which can be accessed here
