Employment service and support during coronavirus

Grace Andrews General, Getting you back to work, Jobs, Military

As the nation continues to be affected by and adapt to the developing coronavirus situation, we would like to reassure veterans and partners across our network that the employment service provided by The Poppy Factory will continue to operate remotely.  This includes support for both those who are looking for work and those who we have recently supported into employment. 

Our Employment Consultants, who are based across the country, can continue to provide one-to-one support for existing and new veterans. This support will be provided over the phone and by email, with the potential for video calls where possible.

If you are already being supported by the Poppy Factory and would like to get in touch, please contact your Employment Consultant directly. If you are not yet registered with The Poppy Factory and would like to talk to us about employment support, you can call us on 020 8939 1837 or email support@poppyfactory.org

The Poppy Factory supports veterans with health conditions into employment around the UK, and we know these uncertain times may present many new challenges and concerns. 

The Poppy Factory is not an accredited healthcare provider and as such our consultants will not be able to advise veterans on any specific health concerns they may have. Any veterans who have concerns about the virus or their health should follow the latest NHS guidance here

We recognise the potential impact of the coronavirus on all aspects of our lives, and we stand ready to support all veterans with health conditions on matters of employment, wherever we have the skills and resources required to do so.
