Join this webinar from the Step into Health team and learn about recruiting members of the Armed Forces who are part of the wounded, injured and sick community.
Learn about the wide range of skills and attributes these individuals can bring to organisations and how they would be ideally suited to working in the NHS.

This lunchtime webinar will feature an NHS employer which has supported people from this community into employment, a veteran who was medically discharged from the Armed Forces and now works in the NHS as well as the operations director from Walking with the Wounded, a charity which can help employers to recruit from this community.
