As part of Armed Forces Day 2019 (29th June), The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation has teamed up with Defence Discount Service (DDS) to offer British military veterans and current reservists subsidies on BiKBBI Membership and opportunities to connect with new career opportunities.
In recognition of the tireless work performed by our armed forces and in thanks for the dedication and selfless service to our country from the men and women who have given and continue to give so much to our great nation, BiKBBI are working with military charities to promote opportunities within the KBB industry, whilst supporting the current shortage of professional installers.
Launched in the week leading up to Armed Forces Day, the scheme not only provides a generous subsidy to current and former military personnel, but is also designed to attract this highly skilled workforce into our industry – connecting them to our retail partners and those consumers in search of a professional installation service.
Commenting on the initiative, BiKBBI CEO Damian Walters (pictured with his children, Alfie, Sienna and Harvey) said: “Those who have served and continue to do so, give so much and have so much more to give. It’s only right that we give them something back and capitalise on their expertise as we rebuild our own industry workforce. Supporting veterans to start or continue a new chapter in their lives, whilst building a bridge over the skills gap for our industry is an absolute no-brainer.”
The scheme is accessed via The Defence Discount Service only. Details, including Terms & Conditions can be found by visiting www.defencediscountservice.co.uk
