This has certainly been the case for the recruitment of Veterans into new careers in the professional services industry as part of Synergy Group. One Partner’s satisfying experience with a single veteran in 2017 quickly migrated into a successful Veteran Recruitment Campaign and Veteran’s Assessment Centre that has grown the number of veterans within the organisation to over 10% of a growing workforce.
Galia Cornish, CEO for Synergy Group is a strong supporter of providing opportunities for veterans, “I had first-hand experience of the capability of Veterans from my work as a consultant across Defence so I welcomed the opportunity for a recruitment campaign tailored to introducing Veterans to a potential career in consultancy. My respect for the Veteran community and my experience with recruitment agencies in general really drove my thoughts on how Synergy should approach the opportunity; professional, respectful, and focussed on building a bridge between the Veteran – their values and beliefs, and Synergy’s values and our principles-based approach to business. We achieved great success once we decided to bring the whole campaign in-house; from creative and advertising to screening and processing, the conduct of the assessment day, through to selection and making of offers. It was very rewarding to be involved throughout, and the level of investment by our management and consultants was first-rate. I deal with our Veterans daily on a professional basis and greatly enjoy the energy they bring to our business as well as our social and well-being programs. Their capacity to get on board and get on with each new challenge and opportunity has been admirable and shows the value that Veterans provide to businesses like Synergy Group.”
Rob Kennedy, one of the Principal Partners, similarly acknowledges the contribution made by Veterans, “I was taken aback by how much the Veterans appreciated the opportunity and we’ve been able to incorporate them into our business and get them onto really substantial bits of work quickly as a result.
“They routinely seek, win and deliver great work, solving critical problems across government, doing so with great success.”
