Hi folks,

As restrictions on movement here in the UK start to ease, we are keeping a keen eye on how the past few months will have impacted the job market and we’ll update you as soon as we can. We are, at least, hopefully over the very worst.
As is to be expected in times of crisis, it’s our military who have really shone and who are – as ever – some of the biggest unsung heroes. You won’t have missed the wonderful WW2 veteran Captain Tom Moore’s exceptional fundraising efforts. He has now raised over £32million for the NHS and been awarded a knighthood for this incredible achievement. He’s been a real ray of sunshine throughout all this.
More practically, the lack of PPE for frontline staff has been a real bone of contention and apparently, it gets even worse as the stockpile was badly managed and complete and utter chaos – only the military could get things back in shape.
Honestly, what would they do without us?

Finally, here at Ex-Mil, we know that these are uncertain times and we want you to know that we continue to be here for you. We're all working from home so please do get in touch if you need any job seeking advice or help with your CV – we would be delighted to help. 

Please drop an email to [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

Joke: Grocery Store

Two guys, one old, one young, are pushing their carts around the grocery store when they collide.

The old guy says to the young guy, "Sorry about that. I'm looking for my wife, and I guess I wasn't paying attention to where I was going."

The young guy says, "That's okay, it's a coincidence. I'm looking for my wife, too. I can't find her and I'm getting a little desperate."

The old guy says, "Well, maybe I can help you find her. What does she look like?"

"Well, she is 27 years old, tall, with red hair, blue eyes, long legs, and is wearing a tank top with short white shorts. What does your wife look like?"

The old guy replies, "It doesn't matter, let's look for yours."

If you've got a joke you'd like to suggest for this newsletter, just send them in — email us at: [email protected]

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