We’re delighted to have been given a Gold-level award which celebrates our role as an employer in going the extra mile to support Army families around the world.
The Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme award also acknowledges the work that we have done to support the employment of military families, and particularly spousal employment.
We have played a key role in developing and running the Forces Families Jobs platform, which offers military families the opportunity to find jobs with employers who recognise and understand the challenges of being a Service family.
All the companies advertising on Forces Families Jobs have signed the Armed Forces Covenant or are able to demonstrate their commitment to the Armed Forces.
The awards are a public acknowledgement by the MOD of an organisation’s efforts to pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to the Armed Forces community. Commenting on the award, former AFF Chief Executive Sara Baade said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive this recognition. Employers have a vital role to play in ensuring the families of those serving have successful careers and we are very proud to support that through our work, but also as an employer.”
