Celebrating Our Armed Forces

At NTW Solutions we take pride in celebrating our Armed Forces. As a company we are committed to supporting our armed forces community and recognise the importance of their service.

In February 2021, NTW Solutions signed the Armed Forces Covenant. This is a formal commitment to support serving personnel, veterans, and their families.

By signing the covenant, we pledge to uphold principles such as fair treatment, employment opportunities, and access to services for those who have served or continue to serve.

We recognise that the skills and experiences gained from military service are invaluable. Those who have served in the forces bring a huge depth of experience and valuable skills.

We also have people in our teams who are reservists, balancing their work with us and their military duties. We fully support them in accessing training and fulfilling their responsibilities. Reservists contribute diverse perspectives and develop their skills and experiences which they can bring to the workplace.

We actively seek out individuals with armed forces backgrounds in our recruitment, appreciating their dedication, resilience, and problem-solving abilities.

NTW Solutions stands alongside our armed forces community, recognizing their contributions and fostering an inclusive environment. We invite those who have served to consider joining our team, where their skills continue to make a difference.

Meet Chris, Porter Supervisor

I joined the Army aged 17 and did my basic training and then my trade training which was as a driver tank transporter. I served in Germany, Kosovo, and in The Gulf. I also did a radio operators course which was about running a mobile operations centre and handling a large amount of information. I left the Army when my daughter was born and settled back in the UK.

I worked as an HGV driver and as a scaffolder until the pandemic. Then I saw an advert to work at the Nightingale Hospital. I saw it as a chance to serve again and to do my bit at a time of national crisis. I loved the job and have stayed and have progressed now to be a Porter Supervisor and still love working here. There’s real variety to the job and you meet so many different people.

I use my Army experience and training every day at work. I like to make a difference and working to support the NHS is something that makes me proud. In the Army you are trained to be professional and follow a chain of command and get on and deliver the job at hand. I’m organised and am always planning out what we need to achieve. And as you can imagine after driving tank transporters even our biggest vans don’t give me much of a challenge.

Probably the biggest similarity is the sense of being part of a family and of working together. In the Army it is drilled into you that you are part of a team and you can’t go solo and you succeed by working together. We absolutely have that here and it’s great to feel part of a strong team.
