Katy Cannadine

Operations Manager

I am a naval veteran and military spouse of 12 years. Prior to joining the navy as a helicopter engineer I worked in finance for several years within various positions ranging from credit control up to management accounts. I now manage the Liquid Workforce at Recruit For Spouses and I am very passionate about my role. I am immensely proud of all the military spouses I have supported back into work, some of whom have been out of work for 5 years or longer. It is incredible to see how quickly these spouses adapt and rediscover their confidence in the workplace.

In my 'spare' time (if there's such a thing) I'm studying for an English Literature degree and write stories for children.

What has been your favourite posting?
Holland. The lifestyle fits perfectly with my family but I do wish it could be warmer.

What advice would you give to your younger military self?
Don't think too hard, just go for whatever it is that you want to achieve.

What inspires you?
All military wives inspire me. It is so difficult trying to maintain a healthy marriage when our husbands are away and trying to juggle that with children, careers or ambitions is incredibly arduous.

What has been your proudest moment?
I have had many proud moments but my proudest military related moment is when my husband made the Queen laugh.

What 3 items would you take to a desert island?
My kindle, a notebook and multiple pens...

What is your favourite colour?
Purple

If you were food, what would you be?
A pineapple!

RFS was...a platform for spouses who understood my struggles and my challenges. It felt like I came to them in pieces, deflated and very defeated and they (RFS) pieced me back together.

RFS was and is the only platform that exists that really understands the struggles and plight of every Armed Forces spouse.

The competency amongst the military spouse community is unbelievably good and the fact all our candidates were happy with remote working made this ideal for us as a small business.

I found the course to be an excellent refresher of the skills I used in my previous roles, and also a confidence booster to me, proving that I can do it again

Helpful? It has been so much more. It has given me confidence and self-belief as well as motivation and inspiration.

This experience has been more than helpful. It has been, in many ways, life changing.
