Supporting military service leavers into the workplace.

ISS has long supported Military service leavers, Veterans and Reservists in a variety of ways.

As a result of our ongoing advocacy for the defence community, we hold The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award which recognises organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to the defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

As part of our ThinkForward@ISS CR strategy, we are committed to recruiting from a broad talent pool which includes our ongoing commitment to the Military community. So, to reinforce this, in November 2017, we launched our JointForces@ISS programme - you can read about our motivation for the launch here.

What is JointForces@ISS?

JointForces@ISS in its simplest form is a managed network of ISS colleagues and mentors across our UK business who offer support to our transitioning military personal, through engagement days, internships, opportunities workshops and guidance to list just a few activities.

Why JointForces@ISS?

There are many reasons why organisations may wish to recruit individuals who have served in the Armed Forces. For ISS and some organisations, it may be because of a sense of wanting to support n those who have served for Queen and country. At ISS, we also recognise the skills, training, work ethic and goal-orientated attitude that ex-Service personnel have to offer. Of course, all individuals are different, but there are some traits that seem more prevalent in people who have served in HM Armed Forces:


People in the Armed Forces often take a great pride in doing their job well. They are organised and disciplined, with an ability to focus on getting the job done. Employers have told us that veterans are often conscientious with a great eye for detail.

The Armed Forces train their staff to lead, motivate and inspire others. Whether working in a small team or leading a large unit, leadership and clear communication are essential skills.

Veterans often demonstrate a positive, goal-orientated attitude, with an ability to work in difficult or stressful circumstances. People who have worked in the military are at home working in unfamiliar environments and often demonstrate creative problem solving skills.

Teamwork is an essential part of military life. All Service personnel are experienced in working in diverse teams yet also have the ability to self-motivate and to be self-contained when needed.

Working in the Armed Forces gives you a great grounding for being able to follow rules. Our employers have described veterans as being dependable and reliable.
