Kim Williams

Marketing Assistant

A bit about you:
I have been a military spouse for 15 years, supporting my husband through many deployments. Before having children, I owned my own pressing (ironing) business which I was and still am immensely proud of. When we were expecting out first child, I made the decision to sell the business and stay at home with our son.

Being at home was a huge adjustment especially without my husband a lot of the time. I learned to lean on the amazing spouses around me that completely understood how I felt and became a part of our community, including volunteering at the community centre in order to provide classes for mum and tots.

A few years and two more children later I wanted to find my way back to a career path in something I was passionate about but I had little confidence in myself and couldn’t see the wealth of transferable skills and abilities that I had gained being a military spouse. Until, one day I attended a career fair that the welfare had organised, and I met Heledd who signposted me to the Recruit For Spouses career academy and the rest as they say, is history.

Looking for work I found it impossible to find something that I could fit around my husbands and children schedule.

What advice would you give your younger military self?
Don’t sweat the small stuff!

What inspires you about working at RFS?
The spouses I am surrounded by every day. To be able to help enlighten and make them believe in the vast skill set they cannot quite see in themselves – yet.

What has been your proudest moment?
Becoming a mum

What 3 items would you take to a desert island?
A solar powered mobile phone with 4G network, lip balm and a knife.

What is your favourite colour?
Blue

If you were a food, what would you be?
Chocolate! Dairy milk chocolate.

The opportunity to help military spouses believe in the themselves and to enable them to believe in the vast skill set they cannot quite see in themselves - yet - is all I need to motivate myself everyday.

Emily Foster

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.

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.

Michael Coates, COMBAT pest control

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
