Security Monitoring Centres (SMC) has signed the Armed Forces Covenant and pledged to be an Armed Forces-friendly organisation. SMC is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of HVAC, refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.
SMC offers valuable employment, training and flexible working arrangements to those who have served their country, relatives of those who are currently serving or those who might be reservists who need time away to fulfil their military obligations.
When an individual leaves the Armed Forces, SMC will assist potential recruits’ transition into civilian life through bespoke forums, meetings, recruitment sites and/or breakfast clubs where SMC can showcase career opportunities for ex-services personnel to work in their business.
The Armed Forces Covenant aims to support military spouses with their job-seeking through The Army Families Federation, in conjunction with the Naval and RAF Families’ Federations, which have come together to create ‘Forces Families Jobs’, a ‘one-stop shop’ where spouses and family members of UK Armed Forces military personnel can apply for jobs directly with employers who’ve signed the Armed Forces Covenant.
“SMC welcomes this opportunity, which is only available to those who have signed the Armed Forces Covenant,” said Colin Walters, managing director of the firm. “We’re able to promote our organisation, advertise job vacancies and access a large, highly skilled candidate database of working Armed Forces family members.”
