The Drake Former Military Division

A bit about us

Led by a former Royal Marine, the team has the unique blend of industry leading, experienced recruitment professionals and former military personnel, with a wealth of military and commercial experience. As a result, our team understand the different job roles and skill sets that exist in the military and where they align within the civilian workplace.


We understand the complexities of both arenas and are able to match the best candidate with the best client, and by speaking and understanding both ‘languages’ we can aid both clients and candidates alike.


Using best practice recruitment methods, we take the stress out of the process by fully understanding our clients true culture, strategy and environment - working as a partner in order to ensure our candidates are a complete match, and mitigating the risk of the hire from both sides.


We also recognise that talent markets are becoming increasingly specialised. As such, we have chosen to operate as dedicated recruitment and career management consultants in the following industry specialisms:

  • Engineering
  • Management
  • Operations
  • Logistics
  • IT
  • Health and Safety
  • Offshore
  • Defence


As a division of Drake International, we benefit from the scale and resource of a leading global recruitment agency while retaining our standing as a specialist provider of former military candidates from all ranks.
