At Viridor, we signed the British Armed Forces Military Covenant and actively support the recruitment of individuals from military and forces backgrounds, supporting them to develop successful civilian careers within our business.

There are immeasurable attributes that individuals from military and forces backgrounds can bring to our business and we continue to recruit and benefit from their experience.

Qualities such as discipline, leadership, effective decision making, tenacity, team work, adaptability, as well as the ability to work in pressurised and fast paced environments are all key components to working in Viridor and in an environment where Health and Safety is at the forefront of everything we do.

We work in partnership with a number of organisations including the Career Transition Partnership who also support us with coordinating on site Open Events.

All our vacancies are open to those with an ex-forces background.
