The Sureserve Group is proud to support ex-Forces personnel and reservists in rewarding, long-term careers across our businesses. 

We recognise the valuable experience and skills offered by ex-service men and women, and as a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant and through a close partnership with CTP (Career Transition Partnership) we continue to create exciting opportunities to join the Group.

One of many ex-service personnel that have joined the Group, Simon Morby started working for Aaron Services 10 years ago as a Gas Engineer after leaving the Marines, and is now a Regional Manager.

“In the royal navy I was a leading marine engineer mechanic and I decided that when I left I wanted to continue in engineering. I got into gas and got a work placement after my course that led to a full time role. I was TUPE’d (Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) to Aaron Services in 2012 as a gas engineer.

“Aaron were great, they gave me the time to adjust to their way of doing the job and with the skills the military taught me I slotted straight in. My day-to-day role now is managing the workforce and the clients’ requirements over a large geographical area, every day is different and brings a different challenge.

“Some of the best things about working for Aaron Services is the freedom to plan and deliver my role in whichever way I see best, to be at home a lot more than I used to and being able to adapt to the challenges I have every day. They have trust in me which I in turn repay in the trust I have in my Management team.

“My time in the Armed Forces gave me excellent general life skills, time keeping, appearance, attitude, respect for others, thinking on my feet. The attitude to work is instilled in me from the Royal Navy. To those thinking about making a move from the Armed Forces and working with Aaron Services I’d say do it! You are a valuable asset to any company that can see you and the skills that you will bring to the business and Aaron Services know this already, the job can be taught but the transferrable skills and discipline you have already is another story!”
