We believe in building a better Defence where people can work, learn and thrive.

Our story

Since 2011, we have made a concentrated effort to make defence a better place. Starting as a LinkedIn group, we have grown into a community of individuals and organisations that celebrates and recognises the achievements of individuals, teams and organisations working in the defence of our nation.

Our vision


Equality of opportunity across defence and security won't happen by chance. That's why we aim to inspire, challenge and develop, to build a better defence in which people can work, learn and thrive.
