Feedback from our ex-military members

Alastair Allison, CMIRM, BUPA

left the RAF after 16 years of service in the fighter control specialisation

“I have heavily invested in training within my team fully aligned to the IRM to complete both the International Certificate in Enterprise Risk Management and the Diploma. We have changed the requirements of the risk roles to strengthen risk professionalism and to provide credibility in the business based on best practices. This has involved over 14 staff across the business taking these qualifications in the last 12 months and we have completed over 12 other short courses to specifically learn new skills and get fresh insight into current risk practices. These have included Risk Reporting, Developing KPIs, Risk Workshop facilitation, Fundamentals of Risk Management and several others – staying competent is a key factor in this role”.


Joe Gossage, IRMCert, Risk Manager for the Executive Committee of the Army Board, British Army

“I was really keen to formalise my knowledge, skills and experience. The senior leadership of Army is very supportive of this and, since the implementation of Lord Levene’s reforms on Defence in 2010, has committed to ensuring that the right people are equipped with the right skills to succeed. With an annual budget of £9bn, ensuring we behave better as a business ultimately assists in achieving our objectives and saving the taxpayer money. In addition it shows a commitment from the Army to managing talent and investing in its people."
