George Howe, Managing Director, first signed the Armed Forces Covenant on 3rd March 2015. The full pledge Drumgrange has made to the Armed Forces Community can be viewed here.

As part of this promise, Drumgrange is continually looking to recruit Service Leavers. A clear understanding of the necessity to deliver projects, the ability to problem-solve and think on their feet, and first-hand knowledge of how Drumgrange equipment is used in service, make Service Leavers an indispensable asset to the Company.

Currently, almost 20% of the Drumgrange workforce are Service Leavers, supporting the harmonisation of the services that is provided to the Armed Forces.
