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.”
Ramadan Cader, Recruitment and Business Partner at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust added
“Our trust is exceptionally proud to have won this award. Imperial College Healthcare Trust has greatly benefited from the expertise and training of the staff recruited from former military roles. Today they make up our trauma surgeons, lead nurses, admin and clerical staff as well as our security team”.
