Ex-Forces Employee Testimonials

“I adapted surprisingly quickly to civilian life, and I have MBDA to thank for that. The induction for new starters was really helpful - I could read it in my own time and it told me everything I needed to know about time keeping, booking holidays, all that kind of thing.”

“MBDA’s core values are actually very similar to the values we have in the Marines, so they resonate with me because it’s not too different from the background I came from. For me, what really stands out is how well the team gets on. We really support one another and keep each other going if we’re facing challenges; it’s brilliant.”

“Another thing that was really important to me was the ability to be part of the reservists. I needed to work for someone who would accept me disappearing off for weeks or months at a time. Luckily, everyone I spoke to had no problem with it.”
