Recruit Veterans Website Launch

The Scottish Government and Veterans’ Scotland are proud to launch the Recruit Veterans Campaign and new website –, designed to reach employers across Scotland and communicate the benefits that employing veterans can bring to businesses.

An estimated 1,800 veterans will settle in Scotland, each bringing valuable transferable skills, qualifications and experiences from their time in the services. Despite their huge potential, these talented individuals can face additional challenges when entering the civilian job market, from how to communicate their skill sets, to navigating new terminology and working cultures.

The ‘Recruit Veterans’ campaign aims to make more businesses aware of veterans’ unique qualities and learn how they can further adapt their business to attract veterans and support them once in post. A range of social and physical assets have been developed to help you share details about the new resources with your employer networks, and encourage them to the Recruit Veterans website for more information and support.

To access further information and support, please fill in the Recruit Veterans Contact Form.


Recruit Veterans Website

The Recruit Veterans website is an invaluable resource for employers wanting to learn more about the benefits of hiring veterans and how to attract them to their business. The website features video case studies from employers who have already successfully recruited veterans. Information about future events to support businesses to employ veterans will also be available on the Recruit Veterans website.

Employers looking to hire veterans can complete the website contact form to request further support from relevant organisations who will be able to offer employers tailored information on veteran employment.
