Civvy Street is the Royal British Legion’s employment service. We assist serving and ex-Service personnel and their families prepare for employment to succeed in civilian life.
From job seeking support to obtaining qualifications and grants, Civvy Street is a resource for all in the Armed Forces community who are looking to kick-start or build their careers and gain financial independence.
Our Civvy Street Team can give you advice or refer you to one of our partners for support. With our assistance, you can put your skills to good use and find the position that suits you best.
"When there was no funding elsewhere I contacted Civvy Street and was given support straight away. I hope that one day I can give back to such an excellent charity. Thank you so much for your help."
Apply for an Employment Grant that can help towards your costs for finding or keeping a job. We can provide financial support for training, travel, licences and other employment related expenses you may need help with.
