You’ve served your country – now it’s time to serve the world!

If you’re a military veteran and looking for a rewarding career that makes the most of your skills, strengths and mindset, then Aggreko could help you grow your career outside the forces.
REME or Royal Engineers, an aircraft engineer, submarine mechanic or weapons engineer, you could find the perfect role for you outside of the military at Aggreko.

What do we do?

At Aggreko, we deliver energy solutions all over the world to help businesses thrive and communities grow.
Look at our huge range of case studies. You’ll see we electrify Glastonbury using cleaner fuels, use solar to power mines in Australia, help Netflix to burn less diesel when they film on location, keep ice rinks frozen around the world, and bring relief when natural disasters strike.

Our commitment to the Armed Forces

In 2023 Aggreko achieved a Silver Award in the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme. This is in recognition of our commitment and proactive work to ensure those who serve or have served, along with their families, aren’t disadvantaged in the workplace and are supported to succeed.

Silver ERS Banner 2023

  • We support Reservists including offering additional days of paid leave to carry out their duties.
  • We offer work placements and insight days to veterans seeking employment.
  • We support the employment of Service spouses, partners, and dependants by engaging with Forces Families Jobs and offering short notice leave to those whose partners are sent on deployment.
  • We’re working with the Career Transition Partnership to establish a tailored pathway for Service leavers.
  • We have an internal Armed Forces Network, to enable colleagues to link up and support one another and provide feedback to us as an organisation.
As a former Royal Marine, I truly value the service of our forces community both in their military careers but now also at Aggreko. I’m proud that our efforts have been recognised with this award and look forward to continuing to build on our commitment. We’re also doing this on a global scale with similar commitments and recognition in the US, Australia and New Zealand – with more to come.

Armed Forces Covenant

We first signed the Armed Forces Covenant back in 2015 and renewed this in 2023. The covenant is our corporate commitment to hiring veterans and supporting the Armed Forces community. It’s a voluntary pledge of support with two key principles:

1. No member of the armed forces community should face disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen.

2. In some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved.

We continue to work with our internal Armed Forces Network to further develop how we support veterans, reservists and their families. We’re working towards a Gold Award and have signed similar commitments across the Globe including the United States, Australia and New Zealand.

Your experience and skills are what we’re looking for

For all of our roles, we look for people from all kinds of backgrounds who can think on their feet, take the initiative and innovate as a team. Strong interpersonal and listening skills are important too, with a calm, confident approach to problem solving in a fast-paced environment.

We offer a range of career opportunities in different locations right across the UK, from Plymouth to Swindon, and London to Glasgow. And because we’re global – the world is open to you.
