Trust receives Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Bronze Award

Mar 8, 2021 | Gloucestershire, News

We are delighted to have been awarded the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Bronze Award in recognition of the Trust’s commitment and support for defence personnel.

The 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.

Through this process, we pledge to support the armed forces, including existing or prospective employees who are members of the community.

We will also promote the fact that the Trust is armed forces-friendly and open to employing reservists, armed forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses/partners.

The award comes after the Trust signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant in December 2019.

This means we are now able to display the Bronze Award logo on our website, stationery and elsewhere.

The award also provides a platform for us to seek silver and gold awards in the future.
