New recruitment platform, Redeployable, which specialises in placing ex-military candidates into civilian roles, has made its debut in the UK market.
The smart career platform is a game-changer in the recruitment arena, offering a people-focused but technology driven approach to connecting employers and candidates searching for the very best.
Simplifying the process
Redeployable simplifies what can be a complex transition from military to civilian life. The platform standardises job descriptions so that veterans leaving the army can translate their skills into highly marketable business competencies. It’s a technology solution that delivers to very human needs – removing the potential for error, opinion or unconscious bias – to ensure that people, skills and roles perfectly align.
The platform seeks to remedy the significant shortfall of highly skilled workers across all tech enabled sectors in the UK – an imbalance between talent supply and demand that costs UK employers an estimated £4.4 billion every year. Redeployable is different because it carefully pre-vets all companies and candidates to ensure skills and requirements match before they meet.
Redeployable invests in forging trusted relationships with an extensive and growing employer network, from the biggest brands to the most exciting and specialised start-ups. Employers can compare candidates’ skills like-for-like, with technology that automates the connection between users.
Redeployable is offering its ex-military partner members the opportunity to act as community mentors – knowing the pitfalls to avoid and the guidance, tips and hacks to fast-track a successful new career.
Mentors will attend Redeployable events and provide friendly, knowledgeable, and actionable advice in a familiar and supportive environment. These events will include parties where people get to meet others just like them, and speed networking and guest speaker programmes, where people can further hone their job-seeking skills.
Plans for Redeployable are as ambitious as the talent it serves, over the next five years, the company’s mission is to use its technologies to match thousands of exceptional people and employers – to transform opportunities for both.
Ben Read, Founder of Redeployable says: “HM Armed Forces is a unique and hugely diverse talent pool – the RBL estimates 1.1 million strong in the UK alone. These are people who are committed, adaptable and resilient. Whatever stage of the post-military journey – whether service leavers fresh out of the forces, career switchers wanting a change in direction or career progressors looking to build on success, – Redeployable showcases their extraordinary skills to employers who, in turn, are looking for the best of the best.”
Ben adds: “Forces personnel are trained to deploy at a moment’s notice, turn chaos into clarity in seconds and complete complex missions efficiently and effectively. These are the priceless skills that companies are looking for as the ex-military redeploys to civilian life.”
