We want to thank all military veterans for their service to the country, and in honor of that service we want to welcome you back in the best way we can … with a career where your skills are incredibly useful.
G4S’ primary source for the best people has consistently been the U.S. military. While focusing on recruiting the best, we also work hard to ensure that our newly hired veterans remain at the top of their game. Our efforts to recruit and retain veterans have been awarded national recognition.
G4S was named a Top 50 Military-Friendly Employer® by G.I. Jobs magazine multiple times (most recently in 2011), a Top 100 Military-Friendly Employer® in 2010 and 2011, and was named to Training magazine’s Top 125 in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. We have received several awards from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve and Most Valuable Military Employer in 2009, 2010, 2011 and most recently in 2012 (Civilian Jobs).
Our relationship with the U.S. military is both valued and nurtured by everyone at G4S. For example, we assisted the U.S. Navy by participating in a review of the basic training curriculum for the Master-at-Arms (MA) rating. This program provides comprehensive training to individuals in security and law enforcement roles in the Navy and prepares them for transfer to such roles in the civilian sector. G4S is also a sponsor for the Master-at-Arms rating through the U.S. Military Apprenticeship Program (USMAP).
G4S also helps veterans through the following initiatives:
- Partnering with U.S Army’s Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) program, which provides America’s youth with an opportunity to serve their country while they prepare for their future.
- Participating in job fairs sponsored by RecruitMilitary, a nationwide, full-service military-to-civilian recruiting firm.
- Connecting with transitioning and former military personnel through Corporate Gray. This organization supports veterans with military-to-civilian career transition books, military-friendly job fairs and online support.
- As member of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce initiative Hiring Our Heroes, we are committed to helping veterans and military spouses find meaningful employment. This program is in place in our hundreds of local offices where veterans and military families return every day.
As you can see, it doesn’t get much better than G4S for military veterans when it comes to finding a new job or career.
