Armed Forces Day - Showing our Support
Posted on Saturday, June 27, 2020 by Elly Hanna — No comments
Following our pledge to support the armed forces community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant in 2018 we are proud to show our support on Armed Forces Day. Today is a chance to support the Armed Forces providing a much valued morale boost for the troops and their families.
Our Bronze award on the Ministry of Defence’s Employer recognition scheme signifies our continued commitment to supporting the employment of armed services personnel and veterans. We promote and assist the transference of skills and qualities candidates have gained in the military to the civilian workplace, and work with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to ensure we can be best placed to facilitate these career changes.
Below is the pledge we have made:
- to promote the fact that we are an armed forces-friendly organisation to all of our business connections within security & defence industries and by asking hiring managers to consider applicants who are transitioning from the armed forces
- to seek to support the employment of veterans young and old, and working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP), to attempt to create a possible supply chain for skills gathered during military service of any type
- to strive to support the employment of service spouses and partners within our divisions outside of security & defence where a military background is not an essential
- to support without question the training or deployment of our employees who choose to be members of the Reserve forces
We are currently in the process of applying for our Silver award and look forward to announcing this later in the year.
