We are thrilled to announce that Morson Group has retained the coveted Ministry of Defence (MoD) Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award for support of the ex-forces from 2017.
Regardless of size, location or sector, employing members of the Armed Forces community is good for businesses. These awards recognise the outstanding support for our Armed Forces from employers across the UK and I would like to thank and congratulate each and every one." "We were incredibly proud to receive this award the first time around, but to have it revalidated is an even greater honour. It demonstrates that we are continually going above and beyond our covenant pledge and showcases that our work, supporting the ex-forces community into civilian careers across the UK, is making a true impact. I'd like to praise the work of the Morson Forces team and internal champions, in particular, our Morson Forces Ambassador, veteran Andy Reid, who plays an integral role in continuously serving the forces community. We've been lucky to have the support of people like Kristina Carrington (East Anglia RFCA), who has helped us throughout our journey from Bronze through to Gold and onwards to our revalidation" Jon Moon, Head of Operations - Morson Technical Services "This award is about so much more than just the work that Morson Forces does in helping service leaders into civilian roles. It's about advocacy, Morson passing the baton to our clients by encouraging them to sign the Armed Forces Covenant. Recently, we've supported Legal and General Modular Homes to join the covenant. What organisations sometimes don't recognise is the wealth of skills and talent that exist within the ex-forces community, it's virtually an untapped pool. Many service leavers possess key power and practical skills such as leadership, punctuality, organisation and working in safety-critical environments as well as multi-skilled, professional accreditation and qualifications. The Royal Navy doesn't just sail ships, the Army doesn't just fire weapons and the RAF doesn't just fly planes. They can be surgeons, dentists, cartographers, HR and payroll teams, logisticians, drivers, vehicle mechanics, aircraft engineers, security, IT, cyberspace communications, radar, telecoms, chefs, aircrew, firefighter, the list goes on…" - Pat McMullan, Account Manager, Armed Forces Covenant Ambassador.
At Morson, we are committed to supporting ex-forces personnel into civilian jobs and beyond. If you're a service leaver looking for your next role or an organisation interested in finding how service leavers can contribute to your business, visit Morson Forces to find out more.
