Defence Employer RecognitionThe Ministry of Defence (MOD) named QinetiQ as a Gold Award winner in its Defence Employer Recognition Scheme for 2016.
The scheme recognises UK employers that demonstrate a commitment to defence by proactively supporting the Armed Forces community and inspiring others to do the same. To achieve Gold Award status, a company must uphold recruitment policies that are positive to people in and leaving the Armed Forces, creating opportunities for service personnel such as cadet instructors, veterans (including wounded, injured and sick), and military spouses and partners. It must enable reservists to fulfil their annual training and mobilisation commitments and support their reintegration once back at work.
We recently pledged our continued support to UK Servicemen and women by signing the Armed Forces Covenant, which ensures fairness and equal opportunity for service and ex-service personnel, reservists and their families.
