VAS Awarded Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Bronze Award
We are proud to announce that VAS has been awarded a Bronze Award by the Ministry of Defence. As one of just over 300 businesses across the UK to have received the award so far in 2019, this is recognition of our commitment to demonstrate and advocate support to the armed forces community, and align our values with the Armed Forces Covenant.
We pledge that those who have served and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society that they serve.
VAS will be actively promoting our commitment to being armed forces-friendly and are open to employing reservists, armed forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses/partners.
The Armed Forces Covenant focuses on helping members of the armed forces community have the same access to services and products as any other citizen.
This support is provided in a number of areas including:
- Education and family well-being
- Having a home
- Starting a new career
- Access to healthcare
- Financial assistance
- Discounted services
