Service Six sign Armed Forces Covenant

Service Six are proud to have signed the Armed Forces Covenant. The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.

The ERS is designed primarily to recognise private sector support although public sector organisations such as the emergency services, local authorities, NHS trusts and executive agencies are also eligible to be recognised.

Service Six has become a Bronze award holder, which means that we have;

  • pledged to support the armed forces, including existing or prospective employees who are members of the community
  • have signed the Armed Forces Covenant
  • will promote being armed forces-friendly and are open to employing reservists, armed forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses/partners
  • will promote the scheme on our website, social media etc.
