Recognising the value of our servicemen and women
On 11 November 2017, Code 9 Security demonstrated its support for those men and women who have served our country in both the regular and reserve forces in signing the Armed Forces Covenant.
Signing the Covenant is our first positive step to creating new, exciting and rewarding opportunities for those who have served in the armed forces - as well as the police, ambulance and fire service.
The Armed Forces Covenant was introduced to ensure members of the armed forces community have the same access to services, as any other citizen. Support is provided in a number of areas including housing, education, healthcare, finance and new employment.
As of November 2017, 2000 organisations, across a range of sectors, had signed the Covenant including British Telecom, Travis Perkins, Rolls-Royce, O2 and Babcock International.
The security industry already welcomes a high number of former servicemen and women, as they possess key transferable skills which lend themselves to a number of roles in our sector. Code 9 Security is particularly proud to employ a number of former servicemen and women in a variety of front line and management roles, and is looking to significantly increase this number.
