Team Ethos is excited to announce that one of our long-standing sponsors, Atkins, has just renewed as a Team Ethos Silver Sponsor!
Atkins, a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group, is a world-leading design, engineering and project-management consultancy company. Their increased support will help us on our joint mission to fund sport, challenge and adventure in the Armed Forces community to improve health, wellbeing and recovery.
As part of their sponsorship Atkins will be proudly supporting this year’s Remembrance rugby match and several Armed Forces Equestrian events. In addition they will be donating to the Team Ethos ‘good causes’ fund which offers grants to groups and communities wishing to undertake challenging, adventurous activities to help armed forces personnel, including WIS veterans.
Alan Lines, VP Industry Engagement & Atkins Senior Sponsor for Team Ethos said: “I am delighted to announce the renewal of our sponsorship of Team Ethos. I am proud to continue our work supporting the Armed Forces and the fantastic work of this organisation.
Atkins is a vocal advocate for the military community and actively recruits ex-forces personnel. Strong relationships with the user community and military are paramount to delivering high quality work to our clients.”
Atkins has been a long standing supporter of Team Ethos and I am delighted that their recent success in securing MoD business has enabled them to step-up to Silver. Their increased investment in our good causes fund is a strong sign of putting social responsibility at the forefront of company values.
Atkins is one of the world’s most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies. Collaborating with clients, they are driven to make the world a better place. They also strive to make a difference in the way we work, from supporting the STEM skills agenda to setting standards as an employer of choice.
Their work enriches people’s lives and the places they live – whether developing smart cities, accelerating connectivity for communities, or transforming design with technology. Opportunities include planning, designing and enabling complex projects and major programs across transportation, energy and infrastructure.
Atkins was founded in 1938. Over the decades it has become one of the UK’s most respected consultancies, quickly cementing a strong international presence. In July 2017 Atkins was acquired by SNC-Lavalin, forming its ‘Engineering, Design and Project Management’ sector.
ABOUT TEAM ETHOS / TEAM ARMY
Team Ethos and Team Army are co-brands of an MoD endorsed programme which helps to fund sport, challenge and adventure in the armed forces community in order to improve health, wellbeing and recovery. We help the best get better.
Sport, challenge and adventure are critical to the morale, motivation and wellbeing of our forces, yet taking part is often expensive and in some cases, beyond the means of our personnel. We conduct fundraising, attract sponsorship and make financial grants to make these activities more accessible. We also increase the opportunity for those who are wounded, injured or sick to take part in sports and activities which enhance their recovery journey. The programme helps defence suppliers raise profile and brand awareness as well as demonstrating social responsibility by visibly giving back to the armed forces community.
The programme is operated by Ethos Fundraising Ltd in collaboration with Team Army Sports Foundation. The brands Team Ethos and Team Army are interchangeable and applicable within the armed forces as appropriate. Since our launch in 2011, we have donated over £8m to the armed forces community.
