Novus have signed the Armed Forces Covenant and received recognition for their pledge to support the Armed Forces community.
The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Bronze Award was presented by Lieutenant Colonel Tim Gould, Commanding Officer 156 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps at a special ceremony at Novus Head Office in Manchester.
The Armed Forces Covenant promises that together we acknowledge and understand that those who serve or who have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society they serve.
As part of the Armed Forces Covenant, Novus have made a number of pledges to support the Armed Forces community. These include working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to support the employment of veterans of all ages; supporting colleagues who are members of the Reserve forces; and offering support to our local cadet units.
Peter Cox, Managing Director Novus, said: “We’re proud to accept the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Bronze Award on behalf of Novus.
“Signing the Armed Forces Covenant means a lot to our organisation and demonstrates our ongoing support for the Armed Forces community. We offer our support in numerous ways, these include releasing colleagues to pursue their roles as Reservists and providing employment opportunities to servicemen and women upon leaving the Armed Forces.”
156 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps is an Army Reserve unit based in Liverpool with locations in Merseyside and Greater Manchester.
Lieutenant Colonel Tim Gould, Commanding Officer 156 Regiment Royal Logistic Corps, said: “By signing the Armed Forces Covenant, Novus has pledged ongoing support to the Armed Forces family, encompassing Veterans, Reservists, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers and their employers. There is much to be gained on both sides from a partnership with Defence, and we look forward to further opportunities to collaborate in the future.”
