Chubb joins forces with ISS UK for special careers event
11 July 2022
CHUBB – THE provider of fire safety and security solutions – is partnering with one of the world’s largest facility services providers, namely ISS, for a special careers event dedicated to supporting veterans, former Armed Forces personnel and their families with finding new civilian careers.
The JointForces@ISS careers event takes place on Tuesday 19 July at Watchmoor Business Park in Camberley. Starting at 10.00 am and running until 2.30 pm, former Armed Forces personnel and their families will be able to find out more about the range of vacancies and career opportunities on offer with Chubb and ISS UK.
The employability initiative is an award-winning mentoring programme created by ISS UK to help those leaving the Armed Forces transition into civilian life through sustainable employment opportunities.
Since launching back in 2017, the programme has offered advice, guidance and one-to-one support to over 700 individuals, assisting three-quarters of them to secure some form of employment in the form of either permanent roles or temporary contracts at ISS UK.
Raymond Cooksley, programme manager for JointForces@ISS, explained: “The military community has such a wide and varied skill set. It’s one that civilian employers value and need. As a veteran myself, I understand the challenges that individuals from our military communities face when transitioning or relocating to a new area of the country. We’re very proud to be jointly hosting the event with Chubb and opening up even more opportunities for the community.”
Kirsty Brooks, director of employee experience and development at Chubb, responded: “We’re proud to be partnering with ISS UK for the JointForces@ISS careers day. The programme is a fantastic opportunity for Armed Forces leavers and their families to learn about the exciting career opportunities we have on offer at Chubb. Our team will be on hand to explain more about our accelerator sales and technical development scheme, our apprenticeship programme and also current vacancies in a variety of roles.”
