Event: Why Hiring Veterans Makes Good Business Sense

You are invited to attend the Diversity Project’s Veterans Workstream inaugural event.

The opportunity for employers to hire quality, committed and talented veterans of the armed forces is not currently maximised. Many veterans with excellent credentials find looking for employment a challenging and sometimes demoralizing experience. We need this to change – and the time for change is now.

We would like to invite members from HR and recruitment teams in the investment and savings industry to join us to discuss why hiring veterans makes good business sense.
