The defence sector is a major aspect and commitment of the UK GDP for UK national defence and exports – covering the national armed services of Royal Navy, Royal Air Force and British Army plus the private sector providing equipment and services.
With the complexity and criticality of defence projects, programmes and portfolios it is little wonder that project management is so universally applied – with consequential PM posts, positions and careers.
Current defence and military establishments, institutions and manufacturing bases are spread throughout the UK with outposts around the world – as some of the defence contractors and suppliers have truly global presence.
Military personnel returning to “Civvy Street” find natural opportunities in the management of projects as well as in other sectors – to reflect their impressive training and positive outlooks.
Notably, there is two thousand years of military history, accommodation, establishments and celebrations in London, much of which is open to the public and with free entry.
