Why should a Service leaver consider applying?

Our company Director is a former Guardsman in the 1st Battalion, Welsh Guards. Our Operations Manager, Alan, was a Sargent in the Royal Logistic Corps. Commenting on why a Service leaver should consider applying, Alan says:

“Signal Traffic Management have the same core values as the MOD SOLID C (Selfless Commitment, Respect for Others, Loyalty, Integrity, Discipline & Commitment). Working with Traffic Management Operatives is similar to working within the armed forces, with a family-like culture instilling team spirit and high morale.”

CASE STUDY OF ALAN, OPERATIONS MANAGER:

Why should a Service leaver consider applying?

In my opinion, MOD personnel enjoy a good working relationship with their bosses and fellow peers. This work is reliant on highly motivated individuals with a strong work ethic and level of professionalism – all of which are traits prominent in Service personnel. 

Why would Service leavers be a good fit for the organisation?

MOD personnel are known to be hardworking and committed in everything they do; it’s taught all throughout our career to be professional and polite to all members of the public and understand the impact this has on the wellbeing and integrity of the company we work for.

My journey:

I left the Armed forces after serving 33yrs. I worked in the Royal Logistic Corps and then in the AGC (MPGS). I joined Signal Traffic Management on 1st October 2018, where I started working in the office alongside the Operations Managers and learnt how to delegate the workload for the following days schedule, while learning all aspects of Traffic Management from planning through to installation of the works. I found that with the planning of works it’s similar to planning any event or training day we had within the forces.

Shortly after joining I was given the opportunity to take some of the pressures off the Managers and move forward in my career with taking on on-call responsibilities at evenings and weekends. Although this can be stressful, with training and support, this was the next step for me on the way to becoming an Operations Manager myself. Even still being relatively new to the Traffic Management Industry, I have progressed to a Manager and feel an integral part of the team with more Senior Managers asking me for my input on situations. I have been entrusted to run new programmes / projects the company have undertaken and thrive on the responsibility this brings.

I would strongly recommend Signal as an employer to any Service leaver.
