A free course is to be held in Rotherham to help ex-servicemen and women find new jobs.

The five day course, to be held in Rotherham Town Hall from March 7-11, is being run by Royal British Legion Industries and is open to any armed forces veterans. It forms part of the British Legion’s work helping ex-service personnel deal with the transition from military to civilian life. Veterans will receive guidance on building a civilian CV, preparing for an interview and learning how and where to look for work.

Coun Taiba Yasseen, Rotherham Council’s advisory cabinet member for neighbourhood working and cultural services, said: “This is a great opportunity for anyone who has worked in the armed forces to receive valuable support.” Call 0800 319 6844.
