The Sureserve Group is delighted to announce that it has signed the Armed Forces Covenant, a commitment to support reservists and veterans in our employment, as well as encourage those who serve, or have served, into employment with the Group.

Working with Defence Relationship Management (DRM) who provide support on employing Reservists, veterans, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers and military spouses, the Group recognises the great variety of transferable skills and qualities that the armed forces community are able to bring to the workplace, developed throughout their careers. We are proud to be signatories of the Covenant and look forward to working towards the mutual benefit of both our armed forces community as well as the Group’s business needs.

Bob Holt OBE, Chairman of the Sureserve Group, said “We are a process driven business, so the disciplines, skills and experience of ex-service personnel will be invaluable to our organisation. We are keen and proud to be working in this environment and believe in a partnership approach to helping build our business, and look forward to taking the Covenant forward and working with it for the long-term.

Commodore Martin Quinn, Commander of the Maritime Reserves said of the signing “There are almost 40,000 reservists in the United Kingdom, as well as well over 100,000 regular service people who one day will want to take on a different career path. They bring with them a portfolio of skills and a range of experiences and behaviours that are very beneficial to the modern working environment…Making a pledge of support publicly also makes a statement to the Armed Forces community that there are organisations out there that value them… I would just like to say a very sincere thank you to Sureserve for being so supportive of the Armed Forces community.
