At Jacobs, we’re proud of the unique capabilities, experience, and innovation that our global team of over 6,000 veterans brings to our company. November 11 gives us the perfect opportunity to recognize them, thank them for their service and celebrate the immeasurable contribution that they bring to our business, our clients, and the communities that we serve.
11/11 is a date of huge significance for veteran communities across the world. Remembrance Day in Commonwealth countries, Veterans Day in the United States, Independence Day in Poland… the names and methods of observance are different, but the message is simple: it’s a day to honor those who bravely served and made innumerable sacrifices to serve their nations.
Our commitment to recruiting, developing, and empowering veterans has had a tangible impact on our company culture. Their unique experience and the innovation and discipline that they bring helps us broaden our horizons to see the world as it is and as it can be.
Veterans at Jacobs have access to leadership development programs, flexible working and the chance to network and lead with other veterans as part of VetNet, our global employee network for veterans, active military and their families and supporters. With over 1,000 members worldwide, VetNet provides opportunities for veterans to thrive by expanding their business networks, exploring new skills and capabilities and collaborating on new ways to further elevate our company and culture.
We’re proud to be a partner of industry-leading veteran recruitment organizations such as Officers’ Association, ClearanceJobs, Hirepurpose and Boots2Roots — and this year we were excited to be named as one of Forbes’ Best Employers for Veterans and to be awarded a Hire Vets Gold Medallion Award from the U.S. Department of Labor for demonstrating unparalleled commitment to attracting, employing and retaining veterans.
To all our Jacobs veterans and families across the world – thank you for your service. To join our global team, visit https://careers.jacobs.com/veterans/.
