NQA Silver Employer Recognition Scheme Award Winner

17 August 2018
We are extremely proud to announce that we have successfully achieved the Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award!
The Armed Forces Covenant is not a charitable organisation. It is a promise from the nation to those who serve or who have served, and their families, which says we will do all we can to ensure they are treated fairly and are not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives.

The Covenant Scheme enables employers to publicly declare their support for Defence personnel. The pledge is voluntary and Employers are able to tailor their pledge to the needs of their business.
Commenting on the announcement of the 2018 Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards, Minister for Defence Personnel and Veterans, the Rt. Hon. Tobias Ellwood MP said:
“I am delighted to congratulate the recipients of this year’s Employer Recognition Scheme Silver awards. A Silver award recognises the fantastic efforts of employers throughout the UK who have both elevated their commitments under the Armed Forces Covenant and provided actual benefit to the Armed Forces Community.  The winners should all be proud of the life-changing impact and fresh opportunities they are providing to our Reservists, veterans, wounded injured and sick and their families. We’ve seen a record number of winners this year, which shows that the Armed Forces family talent pool is also providing tangible business benefit.” 

NQA has pledged to support the Armed Forces community, including existing or prospective employees who are members of the community. NQA has promoted being Armed Forces-friendly and are open to employing Reservists. The recruitment of Military Veterans is a strong objective within our recruitment strategy and we have recruited many veterans in 2017 and 2018! Please refer to our careers page for details of any vacancies or meet us at one of the Military Recruitment Fairs.

Managing Director, Nick Wright comments: “We were proud when we achieved the bronze award, but the achievement of the silver award highlights how important and integrated the Armed Forces Community is to the long term success of NQA. This is a fantastic achievement for NQA!”
