The UK’s armed forces play a vital role in keeping Britain safe, and we recognise the challenges veterans face when moving into a new career. Raytheon UK is proud to have a long-standing relationship with the UK military both through the technology and the training we provide and as an employer when they leave the service. In 2017, the UK Ministry of Defence awarded Raytheon UK the Gold Standard for its support to the Armed Forces community.
Our Forward Steps Programme is ensuring that the nation can fulfil its duty to those who have served in the armed forces by helping them take the next step in their careers. We are committed to supporting them on this journey, whether through our own initiatives or alongside other organisations.
At Raytheon UK, we have an active events programme that includes “lunch and learn” sessions, leadership and management training, events, and flexible working options. We also partner externally with several organisations, including Combat Stress and the Royal Air Forces Association, to further assist veterans in taking their next steps.
