The Career Transition Partnership

The Career Transition Partnership (CTP) is a joint venture between the MoD and Right Management, a career development and employment company. Established in 1998 and with 24 Regional Resettlement Centres around the UK, CTP provides career support and guidance to service personnel from up to two years before until two years after leaving the Services.

The service provided by CTP is free and aims to make the transition from military to civilian life as smooth and successful as possible. With ex-servicemen and women as its consultants, CTP offers everything from advice on CV writing, job application and interview techniques through to employment market research, online vacancy database and job advertising for employers. CTP also provides link-up with ex-Service charities and organisations offering advice and support on housing, health and welfare matters.

With 95% of those who pass through its programme securing appropriate employment within 6 months, CTP is proving to be a very effective bridge from military career to civilian career.
