Former Military

From Military Service to Civilian Career


KBR’s extensive support of the U.S. and U.K. governments and their allies includes offering former service members new and exciting opportunities to continue serving their countries while forging a fulfilling civilian career.

KBR has a long history of working side by side with the military and supporting active-duty soldiers, veterans and their families. KBR prides itself on creating environments where military and veteran families feel appreciated and can grow both professionally and personally, including through our Armed Forces Community Employee Resource Group. Why? Because we know firsthand that by leveraging veterans’ incredible experience, discipline and ingenuity, we can deliver better solutions to our customers.
