The Safran Helicopter Engines team are all proud to say that we have been supporting the UK Armed Forces for 50 years – it is an integral part of what we do and how we operate day to day. We commit to uphold the key principles of the Armed Force Covenant, which are:

  • “Those who serve in the Armed Forces, whether Regular or Reserve, those who have served in the past, and their families, should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services.”
  • “Special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given most such as the injured and the bereaved.”

We value the relationship that we have with both Veterans & Serving members of the Armed Forces and recognise the important role the men and women who serve our country play in keeping us all safe at home and abroad. 

  • We have several active members of the Reserve Services who are actively supported in their Reserve commitments by the company.
  • We have a strong veteran community within the business, including the CEO, Engineering Director and Senior Engineering Manager; almost 15% of the existing workforce have prior military service. 
  • In addition we actively support the partners of those in military service.
