SCR supporting the Armed Forces community

10th September 2020

Thanks to a chance meeting at a Sheffield Chamber of Commerce online networking event, Dan Laver, unLTD, and Pauline King, Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association (RFCA) Yorkshire & Humber, discussed the opportunity of producing a feature article.

This feature article would be on the Armed Forces Covenant for a future issue of unLTD business magazine.

Several emails later, an interview via Zoom and some very positive responses from forces-friendly employers across the SCR, a four page feature article was ready for print. Read the article here

Pauline said, “It’s been great working with Dan and the unLTD team. We are delighted with the article and the interest it has already generated. We hope more employers, small or large, will contact us to explore the opportunities. There are no costs involved just lots of benefits.”

The Armed Forces Covenant was launched by the government in 2014 and represents a promise by the nation that those who serve or have served in the Forces, and their families, are treated fairly. Across Yorkshire and the Humber over 345 employers have signed the Covenant and are being rewarded and recognised through the MoD’s Employer Recognition Scheme for their commitment, support and advocacy.

unLTD have recently signed the Armed Forces Covenant. Dan said, It was important for us at unLTD to demonstrate both the wealth of experience that the ex-Forces community can bring to the business world in terms of skills, and the ways that businesses of all sizes can show their support. The team at the RFCA have guided us in ways that we can contribute, directly and indirectly, and their guidance has also helped us reach new contacts and potential partners that we hope to work with in the future.”
