The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation – BiKBBI – has partnered with Defence Discount Service – DDS – to offer British military veterans and current reservists subsidies on BiKBBI membership as well as “opportunities to connect” with new career prospects.

Launched in the week leading up to Armed Forces Day on the 29th June, the support is “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”.

The BiKBBI is working with military charities to promote opportunities within the KBB industry. The scheme “provides a generous subsidy to current and former military personnel” but is also designed to “attract this highly skilled work force into our industry”, the BiKBBI said.

“Those who have served and continue to do so, give so much and have so much more to give,” said BiKBBI CEO Damian Walters, pictured with his children Alfie, Sienna and Harvey.

“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.”
