The Armed Forces Community was launched in November 2020 on the anniversary of SSE signing the Armed Forces Covenant. We currently have 70 members who are a community of ex-military, reservists and partners/family/friends of currently serving or ex Armed Forces. The aim of our group is to create a community environment for our members to share stories, articles, blogs, achievements and any other relevant information in a safe space. We advertise all of our jobs through the Careers Transition Partnership (CTP) network, and also all senior roles through the Officers Association (OA) network.
After joining SSE as part of the Resourcing Team for Distribution in March 2020 I was delighted to discover that we had signed the Armed Forces Covenant and were aiming to achieve Gold member status and requested to be part of the project team. I now lead the Armed Forces Yammer Group. We are currently in the process of achieving Silver status and hope to have this over the coming months.
