Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme

Armed Forces 1

As a business, we have long employed veterans and reservists, in addition to civilians.

We have officially pledged our commitment to supporting Armed Forces personnel into the civilian workforce having signed the Armed Forces Covenant.

Through the official Covenant, we will continue to harness the unique capabilities and skills veterans and reservists acquire through working in the military, particularly experience with technology yet to be used by civilians. Technological innovation in the military is often ahead of the curve – and we will be able to benefit from these advanced skill sets and knowledge, as well as supporting Armed Forces personnel in securing civilian employment. George Gillespie OBE, Executive Chairman, said: “Our pledge is recognition of MIRA’s continued support of those who have served and are currently serving in the military. The Armed Forces Covenant means that we can bring new skills and talent into our business which is key as we continue to look to recruit staff across all levels.

We are honoured to receive a Gold Award in the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme which recognises the value of serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families, and what they contribute to the business, in addition to their valued service to the nation.

The award is particularly poignant as we celebrate our 75th Anniversary in 2021. We have a long history linked to the defence of the nation and our allies and have been a supplier to the defence sector for many years, with UK prime defence organisations based on site, and many customers from the sector visiting regularly.

As well as employing and supporting team members who are serving reservists and veterans of the armed forces, we have team members within our defence programmes who work alongside the armed forces, on location, to enable and support their operations and welfare.

Representing the highest badge of honour, the Employer Recognition Scheme encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. HORIBA MIRA was one of 15 organisations in the West Midlands to gain the scheme’s highest award this year.
