Victory Services Club – Support Services Director


The Victory Services Club in London is a successful and prestigious private members club exclusively for serving and retired members of all ranks of the UK Armed Forces (and their allies), and their immediate families.  The Club was established in 1907 as a charity with two primary objectives: to promote military efficiency and esprit de corps, and to relieve need, hardship or distress amongst serving personnel and their dependants.  The Club is located adjacent to Marble Arch and provides 202 bedrooms, 7 Conference Rooms and impressive dining facilities.  Club membership now totals over 61,000.
