The Network Edinburgh is a monthly event, which affords services leavers and veterans the opportunity to network with not only other service leavers and veterans but hiring managers and industry specialists from a number of fields. The Network Edinburgh provides an effective starting point for service leavers and veterans to meet people in sectors they are interested in or to help gain a better understanding of what a role or sector maybe about.

Attendees from industry at The Network Edinburgh understand the skills and expertise that members of the armed forces can bring to an organisation. They also realise how hard it can be to find the right person to discover more about a role or to be given an opportunity in a sector or industry. The Network Edinburgh provides a great opportunity to expand your network and to get you in front of the right people. Be it hiring managers or someone who can help you reach the person with knowledge and influence to support your career aspirations and ambitions.

There are three key focuses to TNE:

To assist any Service Leaver* by bridging the gap between resettlement (transition from military career to civilian) – Career Transition Partnership (CTP).

To assist any member of TNE who is looking for advice or guidance about their career opportunities.

Establish a functional network for the benefit of all members in and beyond Edinburgh both from the professional and commercial point of view. *
