Corps Security (UK) Ltd


Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

The Corps of Commissionaires (Corps Security) was founded to create employment opportunities for those who had loyally served their country, mainly injured ex-servicemen returning from the Crimean War.  An original signatory to the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant, and ERS Gold Award holder, Corps continues to adhere to its founding principles, namely, the on-going recruitment and deployment of ex-military personnel providing gainful and rewarding employment for those who have served.

Striving to be the employer of choice for veterans, we aim to maintain excellent relationships with ex-service personnel placement units and agencies which seek placements and employment, approaching them to fill vacancies and working with them to offer mentoring and support for forces leavers.

We employ reservists within our ranks and organise our business around their needs to support them, and their families, during periods of training and deployment, always ensuring that our reservist colleagues never suffer financially for their continued dedication and commitment. We also offer support to cadet units, particularly in those communities local to our branches wherever possible.
