RLB is proud to be positioned in the top 50 employers of veterans in the recent Great British Employers of Veterans in the UK for 2024.

The award recognises organisations that celebrate the Armed Forces community and who support them in building a meaningful second career. With many transferrable skills from technical proficiency in electrical, mechanical engineering, strategic and tactical planning and leadership skills as well as respect for diverse perspectives, cultures and backgrounds, many veterans suit a career with the built environment.

RLB introduced an Armed Forces community last year, that meets bimonthly for those who were in service to transition to the civilian world, share past experiences as well as providing support to the families of serving personnel. The company also offers a paid for CSR day where employees can spend a day giving back to the armed forces community.

Adrian Webb, Senior M&E Consultant and a veteran, comments,

“It is great for RLB to be recognised as one of the leading employers for those coming out of service. The Armed Forces harness many skillsets and experiences that are relevant to organisations worldwide, and particularly the built environment, so ex personnel can add real value to the commercial world.”

Ben Rossi founder of the Ex-Forces in Business Awards and the GREAT British Employers of Veterans programme comments,

“RLB understands both how to support veterans in the transition from service to the civilian world, but also the benefits that they can bring to the working world. This award shows how they are leading the way in encouraging Armed Forces alumni into the built environment workforce.”

Chris Parker MBE, British Army veteran, Director at Fortinet UK and judge for the GREAT British Employers of Veterans programme, said:

“The GREAT British Employers of Veterans programme is a wonderful way to recognise and thank the leading organisations who support members of the Armed Forces community working in the UK.”
