Armed Forces Covenant Pledge

Company: Cadman Construction Ltd   |  Category: Social, Community & Leisure
We are pleased to announce that on the 15th July 2021 we signed the Armed Forces Covenant and, have become a Forces Friendly Employer.

We recognise the value that Military Families, Regular, Reserve Soldiers and Veterans contribute to our business and our country.

The first duty of Government is the defence of the realm. Our Armed Forces fulfil that responsibility, sacrificing some civilian freedoms, facing danger and, sometimes, suffering serious injury or death as a result of their duty.

Families also play a vital role in supporting the operational effectiveness of our Armed Forces.

In return, the whole nation has a moral obligation to the members of the Naval Service, the Army and the Royal Air Force, together with their families.

Those who serve in the Armed Forces, whether regular or Reserve, those who have served in the past, and their families, should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services.

This is a promise to those who proudly protect our nation, who do so with honour, courage, and commitment. It is a pledge 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 with their lives.

They deserve our respect, support, and fair treatment,

Cadman Construction will endeavour to uphold the above principles by;

- Promoting the Armed Forces: promoting that we are an Armed Forces-friendly organisation, to our staff, customers, suppliers, contractors and the wider public.

- Veterans: supporting the employment of veterans, recognising military skills and qualifications in our recruitment and selection process; working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to support the employment of Service leavers.

- Reserves: supporting our employees who are members of the Reserve Forces; granting additional paid/unpaid leave for annual Reserve Forces training; supporting any mobilisations and deployment; actively encouraging members of staff to become Reservists.

- Cadet Organisations: supporting our employees who are volunteer leaders in military cadet organisations, granting additional leave to attend annual training camps and courses; actively encouraging members of staff to become volunteer leaders in cadet organisations; supporting local military cadet units; recognising the benefits of employing cadets/ex-cadets within the workforce.

- National Events: supporting Armed Forces Day, Reserves Day, the Poppy Appeal Day and Remembrance activities.

- Armed Forces Charities: supporting Armed Forces charities with fundraising and supporting staff who volunteer to assist
