Hi folks,

The British summertime is doing what the British summertime does best and veering wildly from heatwave to monsoon.

In bleak news, we are horrified at continued failure to uphold the Armed Forces Covenant, which promises to take care of all our military boys and girls, past and present. On top of recent stories about homeless veterans and accommodation unfit to live in, we are now seeing our veterans forced to rely on foodbanks. It’s clear that something absolutely has to give and we’d love to hear your thoughts over on our Facebook page.

For a little sunshine, we are absolutely inundated with amazing vacancies at the minute. Do take a look at the very long list below and get in touch if you think you’ve found your match!

Drop us a line on [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

You could be eligible for a university degree in management

A university degree in management can lead you into a worthwhile second career. Your rank could make you eligible for an online MBA at a prestigious UK university. Even if you have a specialist skill, a university degree in management is particularly relevant as your next career path should take you into management.

www.onlineuniversitymilipol.com works with military and ex-military candidates worldwide. We pilot you through the university acceptance process by turning your Services experience into ‘academic points’ so that you are offered an online university place with LSM (distance learning associate college of Anglia Ruskin University). There is no charge for this work, as it is paid by LSM, so you can find out if you comply without obligation. We remain with you throughout your study and will even attend the graduation ceremony on your behalf if you are abroad.

The cost of online study is significantly less than that of attending university and, more importantly, you do not need to stop working whilst gaining your degree.

One of the big advantages of online study is flexibility, particularly when you are unable to commit to a fixed weekly schedule. You might even finish earlier than an attending student if you are able to put in more time but your qualification and benefits will be exactly the same. Additionally, you can start after acceptance rather than waiting for the next year like an attending student.

Joke: Baby news

An expectant father was travelling home from work when he heard that his wife had been admitted to hospital.

Worried, he tried to call the hospital but accidently got through to the cricket stadium.

He asks, “How’s the situation?”

And a voice at the other end of the line said,

“Everything’s going well. We’ve already got 3 out. We’re hoping to get another 7 out by lunch… the last one was a duck!"

For various reasons we can't always include them in the newsletter, but we always appreciate them!
