Retain Limited & the Royal Marines Charity

Retain Limited is incredibly proud to work closely with the Royal Marines Charity (RMA). This fantastic charitable organisation aims to provide lifetime support to the Royal Marines Family by whatever means required.

 

The RMA has grown professionally over the last few years, initially established through personal connections from our management team here at Retain Limited.

 

With many of our employees previously serving in the Royal Marines, including our Founder and Director Jamie Gibbs, we endeavour to provide employment opportunities to help other former Royal Marines re-adjust to the lifestyle of a UK civilian.

 

We also strive to help educate, train and create bespoke career pathways tailored to individual skill sets to enable and encourage a successful and fulfilling life post-service.
