Ensuring successful employment transitions for veteran Senior Non-Commissioned Officers – summary documents

September, 2020

These summary documents accompany a full report which explores the employment outcomes for SNCOs and the challenges faced in securing civilian employment.


Evidence shows that veteran Senior Non-Commissioned Officers (SNCOs) often find it harder to make a successful transition into civilian employment than other veterans and face a number of challenges during their transition journey. This is despite SNCOs having a wealth of transferable skills which should be highly valued by many employers. This study was commissioned to identify the key barriers and challenges to SNCOs making a successful employment transition and to provide recommendations on how they can be best supported.
