The Ministry of Defence in the U.K. has honored J.P. Morgan for its commitment to ex-military personnel. The firm was named a gold winner in the Ministry’s employer recognition scheme.
J.P. Morgan was the first U.S. investment bank to add its name to the U.K. Armed Forces Corporate Covenant, underlining its commitment to helping ex-military personnel find work in financial services.
The firm continues to help ex-military personnel find private sector jobs in the U.K. The firm’s Ex-Military Internship Program, now in its fifth year, helps military candidates transition into the job market, giving candidates the chance to learn about routes in financial services and strengthen their skills and experience, and to build a network within J.P. Morgan.
The firm also hosts a number of Service Leavers’ Financial Services events in the U.K. which give ex-military personnel looking to embark on a career in the financial sector the opportunity to network with senior staff and ex-military members already working at the firm.
