Listen to this article

Atalian Servest has renewed its pledge to the UK’s Armed Forces Covenant, further cementing its commitment to support employees as reservists and veterans.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation to ensure that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.

Tom Copsey, Head of Recruitment, says: “Atalian Servest is proud to be an active recruiter of ex-forces personnel and has a large ex-forces contingency throughout the business, across security, IT, project management, catering, electrical engineering, logistics and administration.”

Holly Ferneyhough, Business Support Manager and a former Lance Corporal of 3 Regiment Army Air Corps who served two tours in Afghanistan, joined Atalian Servest six years ago, says: “Coming out of the Forces and joining Atalian has been a very positive experience and the Atalian Servest ‘family’ has supported me in the development of my career in facilities management. The training and assistance they have delivered have had a major impact in my transition to civilian life after eight years in the Army.”

Jez Dyer, Regional Operations Manager – and a former member of the 1st Battalion, Parachute Regiment who served on operational tours in Sierra Leone, Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan, adds: “A lot of my colleagues at Atalian Servest are from the veteran community which means there is a familiar ethos and approach to work in the business and that all important sense of humour is ever present.


“It is a large organisation with a great deal of learning, development, and career opportunities. I have been in the business just over a year now, it has been interesting, challenging and rewarding and I work with a great team”

Simon Bramwell, Events & Compliance Manager, who followed his father into the Army by joining the 1st Battalion the Duke of Wellingtons Regiment in 1985 before rising to the rank of Sergeant Major during 22 years of service, says: “The advice I would give anyone thinking of leaving the military would be to look at what you have achieved and the skills you have gained as these will be used in civilian life once you leave the Army. Think about your resettlement course and consider a career that is multi-role such as FM as this gives you many options to broaden your existing skills and experience.”
