The Career Transition Partnership (CTP) is a partnering agreement between the Ministry of Defence and Right Management Ltd, who are global career development and outplacement specialists and part of the ManpowerGroup.

The CTP provides resettlement services for those leaving the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and Marines. Regardless of time served, all members of the Armed Forces can benefit from CTP support when leaving Service.

Insignia Crew works with the CTP to help secure service leavers employment by actively posting vacancies on their ‘Right Job’ jobs database and exhibiting at their employment fairs.  As Insignia Crew grows we hope to offer Civilian Work Attachments organised by CTP which enable those who are in the process of leaving the military to complete work experience placements whilst still serving, a fantastic opportunity for employers and leavers alike.

This pledge is a commitment by them and signatory organisations to work together to build a diverse and inclusive Yachting industry; we are honoured to sign it and very much hope to become a leader within this global movement. With the tremendous driving force behind She of The Sea, we have every faith that things will change for the better.
