Career Transition Partnership

CTP - The Ministry of Defence partnering with Right Management

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 Manpower Group. CTP provides resettlement services for those leaving the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and Marines.
