The UK's longest-standing national tri-service military charity, SSAFA works to ensure that the needs of armed forces veterans and their families are met, relieving need, suffering and distress, and supporting their independence and dignity.
When selecting our charity of the year, we wanted to identify an organisation that all Reliance staff could get involved with, across the nation. The charity’s national presence and Reliance’s long-standing close association with the armed forces made SSAFA the natural choice.
Administered by the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals, the Security Benevolent Fund (SBF) exists to assist members of the security profession who are distressed and in need of welfare support.
Aiming to assist those who have fallen on hard times, SBF funds medical care and support to help them back into normal work.
Reliance recently worked with the Worshipful Company of Security Professionals at an event to raise funds and awareness for the SBF.
Reliance has run an apprenticeship programme for several years, taking individuals new to engineering through to full competence. Running over a two-year period, our programme combines on-the-job learning with formal training at specialist colleges. During 2019 we have three apprentice Security Engineers working at various Reliance sites across the country.
Our commitment to the apprenticeship model rests in part on the excellent experience we have had with our apprentices – they have contributed significantly to our success over the years. The programme also helps us, in a market short of skilled individuals, to nurture and develop the talents and skills we need. Additionally, we have a desire to support and prosper the community – our apprenticeship programme is one of the ways in which we do that.Contact Us Today
