Newsletter – 10 October 2019
October 10, 2019 Newsletter
We were really warmed by the response to a call for people to attend a 103-year-old Second World War veteran’s funeral this week. It's always great to see a hero get the send off he deserves, so a huge thank you to everyone who attended.
Elsewhere, we have some really interesting comparisons for you from the last few weeks’ news. Firstly, the sobering news that ex-military personnel still face negative stereotypes when they apply for jobs. Fighting this is why we exist.
As you know, we continue to bang the drum about the exceptional qualities and skills of ex-mil guys and girls and in contrast to the story above, it seems the message is getting through to some really unexpected places – with the news that a top Twitter executive is a British Army information warfare unit reservist. Now, that's more like it – a true recognition of exceptional and unique skills!
We’ve got a great list of vacancies for you below but if you fancy something a little more… extreme, the UK Space Agency is hunting for Britain's next astronaut in its first recruitment drive in a decade.

Joke: Pets in heaven
A German Shepherd, Doberman and a cat have died.
All three are faced with God who wants to know what they believe in.
The German shepherd says: "I believe in discipline training and loyalty to my master."
"Good," says God. "Then sit down on my right side. Doberman, what do you believe in?"
The Doberman answers: "I believe in the love, care and protection of my master."
Ah," said God. "You may sit to my left."
Then he looks at the cat and asks, "And what do you believe in?"
The cat answers: "I believe you're sitting in my seat."
