Today the Rail Forum Midlands joined forces with the Careers Transition Partnership, to bring together military personnel who are currently planning their transition into civilian life, and who may be interested in a second career in the rail sector, with RFM members looking to expand/develop their workforce.

The event catered for all service leavers with a wide variety of backgrounds; offering a dedicated session for Senior Officers looking for senior management positions; talks from ex-military personnel who have forged successful careers in the rail industry; and offering the opportunity for delegates to learn first-hand, from prospective employers, about the roles available and types of skills required.

20 RFM member organisations exhibited at the event free of charge; from Carillion to Learning Unlimited, Siemens to CoMech Metrology, and Network Rail to Ford & Stanley, and were delighted with the 100+ high-quality candidates who attended.
