Forces Enterprise Network - Career & Business Support



The Forces Enterprise Network, Recruit for Spouses and Evolution Forces Families have announced the creation of a new careers and enterprise company ‘Forces Enterprise Network Hub’ a fully integrated organisation which aims to transform the provision of careers and business support for the ‘whole’ Armed Forces Community.

FEN Hub exists to provide members of our Armed Forces community with the skills, resources and practical tools needed to be successful in whatever route to employment they choose, either by starting and maintaining a business or securing employment.

We bring our passion for business, experience in recruitment, knowledge of financial services and expertise in delivering training programmes and business networking to our defence community, and together we are making a difference in the lives of tri-service members, veterans, reservists, spouses and their families.


Christine Dedman, Director at Forces Enterprise Network says: “Our newly established organisation is a natural fit, together we can provide extended services to the whole Armed Forces community drawing on our individual strengths and in-depth understanding of the defence community in which we operate.”

Through our combined experience we have created a social enterprise designed specifically to meet the needs of our Armed Forces personnel, their spouses, veterans and reservists. We aim to offer a comprehensive support utilising our combined connections. Our partnership unites our individual members and works in response to the changing shift in employment options, MoD and government policy to support further the choices and support available in employment and self-employment to the Armed Forces community.

Heledd Kendrick, CEO at Recruit for Spouses says: “Recruit for Spouses believes that no military spouse should have their career subjugated because of their attachment to the Armed Forces.”
FEN Hub offers extended member services via online business support, downloadable guides on a range of employment and self-employment topics, mentoring, seminars and representation. A network of business support hubs across the UK’s MoD bases, British Forces Germany, Belgium and Cyprus has strengthened the outreach FEN Hub can provide to our members in their local communities and encourages peer supervision, creating a unique business network of entrepreneurs from a previously undervalued, high-quality resource of professionals from our Armed Forces Community.

Nadine Monks, Director at Evolution Forces Families says: “EFF’s mission statement is to improve the financial outcomes and futures of the military community through the services we offer. As part of this we recognise that a second income or aspirations beyond a service career can be integral to the planning of this. We are delighted to be part of this uniquely holistic approach to addressing these needs.”
