BMF becomes preferred career supplier for ex armed forces personnel
POSTED 23 Jan 2015 . BY Jak Phillips
BMF head of operations Garry Kerr, who previously served in the armed forces for eight years
Outdoor exercise provider British Military Fitness (BMF) is in line to offer even more career opportunities to ex-armed forces personnel, after winning Ministry of Defence (MoD) approval.

The company has been accepted onto the highly-regarded Career Transition Partnership (CTP) preferred suppliers list, set up by the (MoD) and Right Management.

The CTP is an initiative set up to help those leaving the Armed Forces resettle into civilian life.
BMF, which this week became the first operator to receive ukactive Outdoor Code of Practice certification (OCOP) runs classes in more than 140 parks across the UK. The company has in excess of 400 instructors, all of whom possess an authentic military PT background.

Admission on to the CTP list should help the company with future recruitment as it seeks to expand, as well as bringing opportunities to those leaving the forces. The preferred supplier list outlines training providers and employers that have been vetted and judged to be a worthwhile career path for those leaving the armed forces to consider.

“It is often difficult for ex-service people to acclimatise to civilian life and know where to start their next chapter, so I think the CTP is an important service to help offer the best possible start,” said BMF head of operations Garry Kerr, who previously served in the armed forces for eight years.

“We are both pleased and proud to be included on the CTP’s list of preferred suppliers and we look forward to working with more service leavers in the future.”
