To assist Veterans with finding not only employment opportunities but employment opportunities with an outstanding employer, we have formed a partnership with Polaris Medical Services.

Polaris is Veteran-owned and already employs many ex-forces personnel amongst it's team. Recognising the superb attributes that many Veterans possess in abundance, Polaris are keen to employ more Veterans and are also keen to continue their support for The Veterans Charity.

We are delighted to be able to share the first batch of vacancies and ask anyone to share them with any Veterans who may be suitable for the roles!
