FrontFoot & Firebrand
At Firebrand, we're proud to join forces with FrontFoot Life and FrontFoot Jobs to support the transition of serving military, vets, and their families into civilian roles.
FrontFoot Life was founded in 2020 by a group of ex-service-members and recruitment specialists with one goal in mind: back the military and their families beyond service, leaving no one behind. We cannot agree with this more.
FrontFoot provide training and support for a variety of concerns, from finance to mental health, to serving military, veterans, service leavers, reservists, and their families. Their career portal, FrontFoot Jobs, features vacancies, Armed Forces community candidates, and Forces-friendly employers to support career transition in a holistic manner. It provides a 12-month career support program guided by former service members who have successfully transitioned to civilian life.
Our partnership provides Armed Forces with a clear pathway to thriving careers with some of the largest names in IT.
Together, our support includes:
- Specialised career paths to transition members’ unique skill sets and experience to Cyber Security and related fields;
- Access to industry-recognised certifications to prove members’ professional credibility and help them stand out in today's competitive job market;
- Access to high-quality training programmes that blend hands-on training, IT labs, and theoretical expertise;
