St. James’s Place are delighted to announce that they have launched a new Military Network to support the Armed Forces community and help those who are leaving, or have left the military, and their families transition into a career in financial services.
We are equally delighted to reveal that in October SJP signed the Armed Forces Covenant. This shows our commitment to support the Armed Forces community and ensure they are not disadvantaged in society.
SJP’s Military Network already has over 100 former military personnel and reservists, cadet instructors and spouses across SJP.
Andy Mallows, Director of Operations for the Managing Director at St. James’s Place, comments: “We’re delighted to have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and proud to be launching our own Military Network to build on our support for the Armed Forces. The journey from the forces into the workplace can be quite daunting, so we’ve aimed to create a network that truly understands what these candidates are experiencing, first-hand.’
“Whilst we’ve been supporting the Forces through our Academy programme for a long time, the collaborative approach by the Military Network will accelerate this even further. The response among our colleagues has been positive and we’re looking forward to building on this and seeing what we can achieve.”
During October we held a socially distanced launch event of the Military Network, we were joined by Andrew Croft, CEO of St. James’s Place, Major General Paul Nanson CBE, recently retired Commandant of Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and best-selling author, who gave an inspiring keynote speech. This was followed by a Q&A session with Oliver Stokes MBE (SJP Staff and former Army), Louise Worrall (Academy Partner and former Royal Navy) and Simon Roffey (Academy Partner and former Army) who discussed ‘Why having a Military Network is Important’. The launch event can be viewed below:
