The Institute of Leadership & Management membership can provide an excellent platform to help you make the transition to a civilian career. More than 10 per cent of Institute members are serving or have served in the Armed Forces. We can help you get recognition for the skills and training you received while in the Forces.

 

Military rank equivalencies

The Institute of Leadership & Management recognises military ranks and have mapped them to membership grades, according to levels of achievement, experience and qualifications.

We have also mapped military training courses to ILM qualifications. This means that, if you don’t have formal management-related qualifications, you can still join the Institute, at a membership grade that recognises your achievements and/or military training.
