Digital technology and cyber security specialist 6point6 has joined more than 9,000 organisations who are signatories to the UK’s Armed Forces Covenant.
The Covenant is dedicated to helping members of the armed forces community have the same access to public sector and commercial services and products as any other citizen. This includes education and starting a new career.
6point6 Chief Executive Officer David Webb said:
“For many years we have supported serving personnel, service leavers, veterans, and their families. Becoming a signatory to the Armed Forces Covenant is a public statement of that long-standing commitment. We are proud to employ a number of veterans in a variety of disciplines and at all levels in our organisation.
We are always pleased to hear from others, especially Solution Architects, Cyber Security and Data specialists, who are motivated by solving complex business challenges and delivering technology solutions that make a real difference to our clients.”
Gary Mclaughlin, 6point6 Cyber Security Architect, commented:
“It’s coming up to 12 months since I joined 6point6 and I haven’t looked back. This is my first role since leaving the armed forces and it’s great to be part of a growing veteran community in a forward-thinking business. 6point6 understands the skills you bring and offers plenty of opportunities to develop and grow, which has really helped to ease the transition into my new career.”
