VSC Awarded Bronze in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS)

We’re proud to announce the VSC has been awarded bronze in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.

The ERS is designed primarily to recognise private sector support although public sector organisations such as the emergency services, local authorities, NHS trusts and executive agencies are also eligible to be recognised.

Bronze Award holders:

  • Are self-nominated by employers who pledge to support the armed forces, including existing or prospective employees who are members of the community
  • Must have signed the Armed Forces Covenant
  • Promote being armed forces-friendly and are open to employing reservists, armed forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses/partners

VSC Club Secretary, Air Commodore Nigel Beet Said “The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme is an important opportunity by which employers, such as the Victory Services Club, can demonstrate their support to defence.  The Victory Services Club is delighted to be awarded the Bronze Award and we look forward to further demonstrating our long-term commitment to supporting defence through this scheme by applying for the Silver Award”.
