A guaranteed interview scheme for armed forces veterans has been launched by Powys County Council.

The scheme is designed to help military veterans fulfil their potential in civilian life by helping to remove barriers in finding civilian employment.

Powys County Council Deputy Leader and Armed Forces Champion, Councillor Matthew Dorrance said:

"The County Council has long been a supporter of the armed forces but this scheme goes above and beyond our Armed Forces Covenant with practical help for veterans.

"We know that finding a role in civilian life can be a challenging experience and I am delighted that we can guarantee an interview for veterans as part of our normal recruitment process.  

"Veterans offer a wealth of talent with transferable skills at a time when the council is looking to strengthen its workforce. We can help veterans find meaningful employment and attract candidates for our vacancies - it is a win-win situation.

"We have recently been in discussions with the Career Transition Partnership to support this initiative and all appropriate vacancies are now advertised on this site".
