When Amazon.com launched in 1995, it was with the mission “to be Earth’s most customer-centric company.” What does this mean? It's simple. We're a company that obsesses over our customers. Our actions, goals, projects, programs and inventions begin and end with the customer top of mind. In other words, we start with the customer and work backwards. When we hit on something that is really working for customers, we double-down on it with hopes to turn it into an even bigger success. However, it’s not always as clean as that. Inventing is messy, and over time, it’s certain that we’ll fail at some big bets too. At Amazon we’re constantly looking for leaders who can invent, think big, have a bias for action, and who want to deliver for customers, those principles look very familiar to the men and women who served their country in the Armed Forces. Due to Amazon’s constant and sustained growth, we need strong, dynamic leaders who can harness the skills developed within the military to make a significant impact on the business. To find our live roles, search ‘military’ at Amazon.jobs.

Leafield was founded in 1992 and its core business concerned the management of naval stock for the range of vessels originally operated by the Royal Navy, but which are now in use serving overseas navies. We were, and remain, specifically responsible for the disposal of naval material declared surplus by the UK Ministry of Defence. Over recent years, this core business has developed to cover a much wider range of services including procurement, management of obsolescence and particularly finding creative solutions to our customers problems, such as the way we have taken over the overhaul and support of Tyne and Olympus engines from Rolls-Royce. We provide a ‘one stop shop’ for our customer base which includes international navies and blue-chip defence businesses. The Company has an excellent reputation for its engineering expertise and for consistently procuring a comprehensive range of fully certified and cost-effective spares which even includes having new tooling and parts made when this is the only solution.
We are based in Wiltshire between Swindon & Bath, but Covid-19 has proved to us that we have a certain amount of flexibility around the way we work. We are a small team in which everyone is very hands-on, we have a great working environment and very much a “one-team” culture, probably helped by the fact that many of staff are ex-military, and in particular ex RN.
The Company currently services customers across 16 countries and operates from its headquarters and storage facility in the South West of England, some 70 miles west of London. Our services can include installations for our customers, so we have in recent years sent teams to, amongst other places, Romania, Brazil, Chile and Pakistan.

Our Commitment to the Armed Forces Community
Veolia is a Gold Defence Employer and is committed to offering ex-service personnel successful civilian careers upon leaving the forces because we see the skills and experiences gained in the army as essential for our workforce. We have resigned the Armed Forces Covenant to further advocate our commitment to the Armed Forces Community and have an active Armed Forces Support policy. We believe that the Armed Forces community have skills and experience that would suit a wide range of roles across all of these business units, and would encourage ex-military personnel to explore opportunities that may be a little different to their military experience.
Veolia has over 14,000 employees in the UK and Ireland alone. We offer a range of roles, roughly grouped into the following areas:
● Operative roles: Our operatives are the biggest part of our workforce and work on a range of sites across the UK. This could be alongside local councils helping to deliver effective waste collection services, onsite ensuring the safe movement and processing of materials or even driving our Light/Heavy Goods vehicles.
● Technical roles: We rely on technical expertise to drive innovation and maintain our hundreds of sites across the UK. Technical roles could include electrical or mechanical engineers who maintain plants, equipment or vehicles, or chemists who help us ensure environmental compliance. We also have a central team who are responsible for the design, construction and testing of new infrastructure.
● Corporate functions: Corporate functions such as HR, IT, Finance and Sales form an integral part of our workforce. Together, these teams are providing the services that the rest of the organisation need to work effectively and efficiently.
The ocean forces that are present around the World are incredibly powerful and consistent, but as yet an energy source that is unused. Wave-tricity was born with a mission to develop a commercially viable, real world, wave energy convertor – and with over 100 years of ocean experience within our team, we know what it takes to survive and work within such a hostile environment.
Wave-tricity, the inventor, owner and developer of our patented device, is currently undertaking development of its technology; technology that will finally make use of the worldwide resource of wave energy estimated to be greater than 2TW.
To enable us to do that, in July 2016 funding was secured by an investment from the European Regional Development Fund through the Welsh Government for the development and testing of the Wave-tricity device
