The Ministry of Defence does not maintain records of the career destinations of service leavers, and to do so would require service leavers to notify us when they pursue alternative job opportunities. However, a survey of all service leavers six months after discharge is conducted by the Career Transition Partnership and in 2010, service leavers found post-service employment within 44 industry sectors across the public, private and voluntary/community sectors. These industry sectors are diverse and range from accountancy and finance through to sports and leisure.
