Working in partnership with The Royal FoundationBorder Force and Walking With The Wounded have developed a programme designed to encourage ex-service leavers to bring their transferable skills and experience to roles within Border Force. 

Border Force is a law enforcement command within the Home Office. They secure the UK border by carrying out immigration and customs controls for people and goods entering the UK.

They are responsible for:

·         Checking the immigration status of people arriving in and departing the UK

·         Searching baggage, vehicles and cargo for illicit goods or illegal immigrants

·         Patrolling the UK coastline and searching vessels

·         Gathering intelligence

·         Alerting the police and security services to people of interest

Border Force officers work at 140 sea and air ports across the UK and overseas.
