Frequent mobility, chequered CVs, finding work on overseas postings and flexible work to fit around childcare are all hurdles that many families have to clear when it comes to finding employment. We take a look at how those hurdles can be overcome in this autumn's edition of Army&You.
 
We also hear from families who have not let their disabilities stop them from finding suitable work and the Army entrepreneurs successfully running their own businesses.  
 
There are all our regular features and the latest news on AFF's work, some great giveaways and our popular postbag section. If you would like to contribute, get in touch!
