If you’re looking for an opportunity to make a difference in a forward-thinking organisation, then look no further. We offer a wide range of roles, from administration to engineering, and we believe that there really is something for everyone.

What’s in it for you?

We’ll support your continual professional development, and will do our utmost best to offer hybrid and flexible working options that support a healthy work-life balance.

We are committed to creating an inclusive workplace culture that supports diversity and equality, allowing all colleagues to bring their whole selves to work

We also have several Employee Networks, including the Armed Forces Community, that raise awareness of inclusion and diversity issues, support wellbeing and help shape our policies.

We offer a range of benefits that support former Armed Forces personnel and Reservists including:

  • Up to ten working days, or two weeks, paid leave each year for reserve forces training.
  • Support for those who are a partner or spouse of a Reservist who is called up, including flexible working or a career break.
  • A pension that continues to build if you’re called up for Reservist service and are a member of the Local Government Pension Scheme

We are also incredibly proud to have recently achieved the Armed Forces Silver Employer Recognition Scheme Award.

Our employee benefits are incredibly competitive, from our salary sacrifice scheme and fantastic pension benefits, to great development opportunities and annual leave entitlement.

Equally, we recognise how important it is for you to feel valued for the work you do. We work hard to support your health and wellbeing while you’re working for us, and want you to have the opportunity to develop and achieve your full potential.
