ECS Engineering Services takes award for support of military personnel

04th August 2021
Turnkey engineering project provider, ECS Engineering Services, has claimed an award for its support reintegrating military personnel into civilian careers. ECS has received a Bronze Award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme that recognises employer organisations that support the armed forces community. ECS’s staff includes former military personnel and the company is actively recruiting from armed forces leavers.

The award is recognition that ECS is open to employing armed forces veterans, including the wounded, injured and sick, as well as military spouses and partners. ECS also meets the requirement of being open to employing military reservists and cadet instructors.

Also a requirement for the award, ECS is a signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant. The covenant pledges that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, including their families, are treated fairly in society. Support is provided in a number of areas, including helping to start a new career, which ECS is involved with.

ECS operates in conjunction with organisations such as The Career Transition Partnership, which aims to reintegrate military personnel into civilian life by identifying ideal employment based on skills, training and experience. ECS also works with Forces Families Jobs, a central portal for employment and training opportunities for military spouses and family members.

The company is currently recruiting for roles with mechanical and electrical engineering experience. ECS welcomes applications from former military servicemen and women, their families, as well as candidates with the right experience and skills from a variety of career backgrounds.

“We have employees who are ex-forces and they have great skills that they bring to the business,” says ECS’s Managing Director, Mark Watkins, who also served in the armed forces.

“We would like to recruit from former military servicemen and women because across all of the military branches, they’re very highly trained,” adds Mark. Mark also believes that employers have a duty to provide a fair opportunity of reintegration to a civilian career.

“We should be doing the best we can for people who’ve served their country. They deserve a fair chance and we need to do everything we can to make sure they get back in the workplace to become part of civilian life again,” he concludes.
