About the Role


Barclays Bank Event for Military Veteran Entrepreneurs (this is not an ABG event/job)

Join us in Newcastle as part of an event series dedicated to supporting military veterans who’re entrepreneurs. We’re thrilled to highlight the extensive support available to you through Barclays Eagle Labs.

We understand that many individuals possess outstanding business ideas, but often hesitate to pursue them. The reasons behind this hesitation vary, but fear of failure or financial loss can often be a significant barrier.

As members of the armed forces, you have faced numerous challenging situations that have demanded courage. This inherent comfort with risk makes you well-suited for the world of business. The skills you acquired during your service can be applied to the civilian business realm, particularly when establishing and running your own company.

Consider the array of proficiencies you’ve cultivated: management, leadership, communication, motivation, problem-solving, organisation, handling pressure, analytical ability, technical knowledge, reliability, creative thinking, and flexibility. These are not common attributes possessed by everyone, but you possess them all. It would be a waste to let these skills go untapped once you transition from the military.

If you’re currently transitioning or have already left the armed forces and are seeking inspiration, have a start-up idea but are unsure how to launch it, or already own a business but are unsure of the next steps, we invite you to our "Start Line to Start-up" business focused event.

At this event, you’ll have the opportunity to hear from individuals who’ve walked in your shoes. They will share their personal journeys, provide valuable guidance on leveraging your unique skill set, and inform you about the various opportunities and resources available to you.

Join us for an informative and engaging session, along with some relaxed networking where there will be both alcoholic and non - alcoholic beverages to enjoy on the evening. This is your chance to capitalise on your military experience and turn your entrepreneurial aspirations into reality. We look forward to welcoming you and supporting your business endeavours.
