According to research carried out last October, approximately a fifth of British businesses wouldn't consider employing ex-armed forces personnel.
A YouGov poll suggested that 18% of over 1000 companies surveyed, were unlikely to employ ex-armed forces personnel, due to "negative perceptions" of their past employment.
The armed forces are a disciplined organisation. Some are highly trained in advanced technologies and others do the hard graft that most civvys would cringe and fail at.
The 18% of companies polled, are in the minority. But, it's a fairly sizable minority and could easily grow in the years to come.
This self righteous ignorance must be quashed!
The Armed Forces need to get back in to schools, colleges, universities and businesses, building connections and fostering understanding with the Nation.

If anything, ex-armed forces personnel should be guaranteed interviews in return for their commitment and sacrifice!
