Mission Motorsport is thrilled to announce that the National Transition Event, a unique opportunity for companies and relevant organisations to meet with a captive audience of service leavers, veterans and military spouses looking to network and find out more about careers after service, is returning to the conference centre at Silverstone on the 24th March 2022.
The annual event, which was sadly cancelled in 2021 due to the pandemic, has previously played host to over 500 service leavers and veterans and is expected to see a record number of attendees. Unlike other careers and transition events, the National Transition Event offers a unique draw including the chance to enjoy passenger laps around the iconic Silverstone GP Circuit and a host of speakers including Sir Chris Hoy.
Held at the wing, Silverstone, and centred on helping those who have left or are leaving the forces to successfully transition, the day will play host to companies from a variety of industries with a greater focus on those from the automotive and renewable sectors as well as charities, government agencies and representatives from MOD.
The day will also see Mission Renewable, the Armed Forces engagement initiative for the renewable industry launch. Established in 2021, Mission Renewable ,with the support of RenewableUK and the Offshore Wind Industry Council (OWIC) entered the sector with a particular focus led by OWIC in delivering the UK’s Offshore Wind Sector Deal. With a number of companies attending from the renewable sector, attendees will have the opportunity to talk to veterans already employed in the industry.
The venue will be separated into distinct areas including;
SELF – practical advice including CV and Linked in support, speed dating and interview practice
HEART – Support and guidance for spousal employment along side volunteering and Uniformed Services opportunities
AUTOMOTIVE – Classic, restoration, artisanal and heritage pathways and high voltage tech and, cyber opportunities
RENEWABLE ENERGY – Companies from the offshore wind industry, onshore wind industry, solar photovoltaics, geothermal, and emerging ‘green’ careers
SUPPORT – a wide range of support agencies, Government agencies and service charities
TRACK – On track rides in track, race and supercars, for attendees.
“By inviting service charities, support agencies and companies who already employ veterans, it is a chance for many to network – make connections with those who understand the process of transition, get advice, guidance and access support as well as get a better understanding of employment opportunities. We hope that by attending this event, attendees will come away with a better understanding of the opportunities that await them and feel empowered to start their next journey.”
