Welcome to the first breaking news section of Corps Xtra. For those I have yet to meet, I am Paul Lotter, Managing Director at Corps Security.

Corps retains EBRD contract for a further five years
I am delighted to bring news that Corps has been retained by European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) on a 5-year contract that will commence on 1st January 2023.
Corps have a 7-year relationship with EBRD, providing a 24-colleague team to their new headquarters in the business district in Canary Wharf, London. This contract has a high level of prestige; as EBRD holds Embassy Status, our teams host diplomats, dignitaries, and VIPs from all over the world and support EBRD with their annual AGMs.
This £1.2m contract extension is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the Corps family, and I look forward to sharing more with you next month.
Every client that retains Corps provides another pillar of security for you in your roles. In times of economic uncertainty, we are delighted that clients retain us repeatedly.
HOT OFF THE PRESS: We have an announcement about an exciting new contract starts this month…look out for this Breaking News in December.
November is a significant month for the veteran community and our colleagues. Armistice Day has been observed on 11th November since 1919. It is a time to remember all those who have served to protect us and our country.
This year, some of the Corps team, accompanied by our partners and customers, took part in the Armistice Day Parade at Trafalgar Square. In addition, wreaths were laid to remember our Corps of Commissionaires colleagues at Brookwood Cemetery, where they are laid to rest with their partners and children.
Remembrance Sunday is on 13th November. On Remembrance Sunday, eight officers from Corps Security, will march past the Cenotaph, laying three wreaths in honour of the fallen. A Regimental lunch at the Naval & Military Club in St. James’s Square will follow the march past.
A two-minute silence is observed on Remembrance Sunday, if you are scheduled to work, it is crucial to ensure you and the team around you observe this silence at 11am. If it hasn’t been discussed with your manager, please speak to your colleagues, and ensure everyone understands the importance of this significant sign of respect. Thank you!
We are going to be featuring our Colleague of the Month news right here. Look out for December’s Corps Xtra to find out who your October winners were and why.
