Corporate Protection has always been an employer of former Australian Service personnel, recognising the unique skills, leadership and training of those who have served Australia.
Today we have many ex-Defence Force employees who have successfully transitioned into the private sector and are now contributing to the CP group service across our sites.
With around 5,000 Australians leaving the Australian Defence force each year, and understanding the unique skills and attributes that ex-service personnel and family members can bring to us, it actually makes good business sense to pursue greater Defence personnel participation and inclusion into the CP group family.
At last count, we had 38 Defence Force personnel in our team. This represents over 7% of our total workforce!
We have formalised our access to service personnel through a range of partnerships and pathways to maximise our opportunity to meet with potential candidates. One of the foremost partners is Soldier On.
Corporate Protection was recently confirmed as a Soldier On Platinum Pledge Partner.
Kevin Lomax, the Senior Pathways Officer – Pledge at Soldier On acknowledged this recognition:
A massive thank you and congratulations to the team at Corporate Protection for your amazing and generous support of veterans and families. The wide-ranging, varied and proactive processes and strategies that support veterans and family recruitment, retention and workplace culture, are the clearest sign of the highest level of support for the veteran community.
Corporate Protection offers our sincere thanks to our wonderful former service personnel, now Corporate Protection family members. We honour you all.
