Cummins Inc. Military Service-Leaver Civilian Work Attachment in Daventry, United Kingdom

Military Service-Leaver Civilian Work Attachment


Are you in the process of leaving the Armed Forces and looking for a way to expand your knowledge of the civilian workplace, develop your CV, build your network and ultimately lay the foundations for a future job opportunity?

Cummins, a global power technology leader, is a corporation of complementary business segments that design, manufacture, distribute and service a broad portfolio of power solutions. The company, headquartered in the US, has had a presence in the UK since 1965 and now covers locations in Darlington, Daventry, Huddersfield, Wellingborough and Peterborough with a distribution network that extends to all corners of the UK.

We are currently looking for service-leavers who would like to take part in a Cummins Civilian Work Attachment (CWA) pilot scheme. A CWA is a tried and tested framework that has the support of the MoD and the Career Transition Partnership(CTP). The framework gives service-leavers and employers a low-risk way of engaging with each other through a work placement that takes place during the service-leavers final 12 months of service. The service-leaver remains employed in the Armed Forces but, with suitable approvals and use of Graduated Resettlement Time (as detailed in JSP 534, the Tri-Service Resettlement Manual), can undertake unpaid work with an organisation to gain insight into a particular job role or industry.

Cummins has developed its own CWA pilot scheme with the aim of giving service leavers a better understanding of our business but also our own teams a better understanding of the unique skills and ethos veterans can bring to the civilian workplace. The Cummins CWA can help a service leaver develop their CV, build their professional network, understand the industry and can also help prepare a service-leaver should they apply for an open vacancy with Cummins.


We have looked across our UK business and have developed mature CWA opportunities at the Huddersfield and Darlington technical centers with roles aligning to those with technician, engineering or logistics experience. However, should you be interested in other business functions or locations we can work together to develop a CWA that meets your needs.

If you like the sound of the Cummins CWA, please send us a CV and covering letter explaining what you’d like to get from a placement, including placement length, location and business function.
