TBW Global has bolstered its commitment to supporting the armed forces community by signing the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant. The covenant is a voluntary pledge of support from businesses and charities to the armed forces community, and includes two key principles:
* No member of the armed forces community should face disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen
* In some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved
The Corporate Covenant will form part of TBW Global HR policies to ensure there are no barriers to veterans and service partners seeking employment.
TBW Global will also assist the armed forces in developing skills and qualifications transferable to civilian employment, thereby enhancing the job prospects of service leavers and reservists. Josh Gould, CEO of TBW Global, said: “We are – as a strategic partner to the Ministry of Defence and an employer of ex-military personnel and reservists – only too happy to sign up to the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant.
“Having made such a vital contribution to the nation’s security, the ex-military personnel and reservists TBW Global employs bring a wealth of skill and expertise to our global workforce. No barrier, therefore, should stand in the way of service leavers and reservists seeking employment with civilian organisations. TBW Global is committed to helping the MOD develop transferable courses and qualifications to enhancing the prospects of civilian employment.”
TBW Global are involved in key training operations with the Joint Multi-Readiness Centre nations in Europe.
