Linked to our recent signing of the Armed Forces Covenant, we are pleased to announce that Global Support Services has received the bronze award from Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS).

The ERS recognises commitment and support from UK employers for defence personnel. The scheme consists of bronze, silver and gold awards for employers who support those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families.

To qualify for the bronze award, employers should pledge, via signing the Armed Forces Covenant, to support the armed forces – while through its activities, promoting being armed-forces-friendly and open to employing veterans, reservists, cadet instructors and military spouses/partners.

Speaking of the award, Business Development Director – Kevin Wootton said “We’re delighted that GSS has been recognised in achieving the MOD’s bronze award through the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme. An award such as this is a huge endorsement of the level of support our business has always offered the armed forces community. Attracting and retaining ex-military personnel has and always will be, a key component part of our recruitment focus.”
