Sodexo is a global food services and facilities management company

As a leading supplier of quality of life services to the Ministry of Defence, Sodexo believe they are well-placed to support regular and reserve forces, ex-forces personnel and military families, not just in their catering, retail and leisure facilities, but through every aspect of their business. This includes their positive recruitment of ex-forces personnel, supporting the mobile careers of military family members and their strong policies to support reservists; they are committed to supporting every one of their employees who is a reservist or who is interested in becoming a reservist and helping to make a part-time military career run as smoothly as possible alongside a career with Sodexo. They are proud that their support to reservists has been recognised with a Defence Employer Gold Award.

They are working closely with the MOD’s official provider of resettlement support, the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to recruit regular service personnel at the end of their engagements and are developing specific pathways within their recruitment process to further engage ex-forces personnel and reservists.

Those applying for roles with them who meet the essential criteria advertised under the ‘ideal candidate’ on the vacancy advertised are guaranteed to progress within the selection process. They are also increasing the awareness of military anniversaries and potential issues such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) amongst their managers and encouraging support to military charities and events such as SSAFA’s Big Brew Up and Armed Forces Day throughout Sodexo.

Their commitment to the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant

The Government’s Armed Forces Corporate Covenant sets out the relationship between businesses and charitable organisations and the British Armed Forces community and Sodexo Defence was one of the first companies to sign up to it in October 2013, followed by Sodexo UK & Ireland in early 2015.
