Did you know…

General Dynamics UK actively invests in the local communities and wider regions where we have facilities.

We are more than just a local employer. We recognise that we can play a positive role in the continued development of our communities, whether through supporting local charitable causes or helping strengthen our local economy by participating in industry and government initiatives.

In recent years, General Dynamics UK has been a regular supporter of the Hastings Half Marathon, and St Michael’s Hospice in Hastings; as well as a proud sponsor of the national academy for Disability Sport. We operate a Charitable Contributions Committee made up of employees from all our sites. They are responsible for reviewing all the charity and fundraising applications received by the Company, and decide where they’d best like to see our donations go.

In addition, we take our support to the Armed Forces very seriously, and were one of the first companies to sign up to the Armed Forces Covenant to express our support to members of the Armed Forces community. We regularly support Armed Forces charities, including ABF – The Soldiers’ Charity, Combat Stress, and SSAFA. We also actively support national charity campaigns including the #22PushUpChallenge and events such as Reserves Day and Armed Forces Day.

 

Our locations

Hastings, East Sussex

Hastings is a lovely town on the south coast of England. It has something to suit all preferences, whether it is a lively atmosphere (particularly in the summer) or tucked away peace and quiet in the old town and surrounding countryside. There are cool bars, bistros and restaurants existing comfortably alongside quaint little tea rooms, traditional pubs and shops. The attractive pier is home to arts and craft shops, and there is always the beach nearby.

Merthyr, South Wales

One of the most beautiful regions of Wales - ideally located between Brecon Beacons National Park and the Welsh capital of Cardiff.

Oakdale, South Wales

Oakdale’s location means you get a choice of where to live because it’s placed between Cardiff and Newport. Cardiff suits city lovers, because there is always something going on with countless shops, restaurants and bars. If you are a nature lover, it is literally on your doorstep. The Brecon Beacons are close by for walking and outdoor sports, while Swansea is just along the coast for seaside and surfing fans. If culture’s your interest, there are more than 400 castles and ancient monuments to explore in Wales.
