J1 Consulting is the vision of its senior management team who are ex-servicemen themselves.
Our Directors and consultants have track records of long military service up to senior commissioned and non-commissioned rank, and also of significant post military experience up to Board level in a variety of industries. As well as a deep feel for the Armed Forces we also therefore appreciate the commercial needs of our client businesses, whilst retaining a good Public Sector understanding from our time in the military and experience in the MOD.
J1 helps its clients to understand what rank, service and military skill sets are most appropriate to their vacancies, and then sources those people economically and quickly from over 22000 annual service leavers, as well as from those who have already held civilian roles since their military service.
J1 Consulting is built on the firm belief that ex-servicemen and women represent a pool of talent who are capable of filling roles in most civilian sectors, but one which is hard for those without direct experience and knowledge of the military to access effectively.
