Silver Recognition: ECS' Dedication to the Armed Forces Community

12th July 2023

ECS Engineering Services has been awarded the esteemed Silver Award from the Armed Forces Covenant “Employer Recognition Scheme” (ERS). This accolade underscores ECS’s steadfast commitment to supporting the armed forces community and recognizing the skills they bring to the business.

The Armed Forces Covenant ERS is a benchmark of excellence, recognising employers that support people who have served in the armed forces. As a Silver Award holder, ECS has proven its dedication to upholding robust policies and implementing actionable measures that substantially benefit servicemen and women.

ECS’s recruiting and selection processes make certain that these service personnel are not disadvantaged. The company actively ensures its workforce is well-informed and conscious of their affirmative stance towards issues related to the well-being and support of military personnel.

“The qualities, values, culture, and teamwork, which are all ingrained in the ethos of all servicemen and women are also deeply valued by us at ECS,” says Mark Watkins, MD of ECS Engineering Services. “We strive to embed these qualities into the framework of our organisation, forging an inclusive, supportive, and forces-friendly work environment. This Silver Award serves as an endorsement of our efforts.”

However, Mark emphasised that the Silver Award is not just an honour, it is a responsibility that ECS pledges to continually uphold. “This recognition reinforces our commitment to supporting, employing, and honouring those who have courageously served our nation. It fuels our determination to build upon our existing initiatives and pioneer new ways of supporting our armed forces community.”

ECS is proud to be a leading employer for those who have served and continue to serve the nation, and it is dedicated to enhancing its support for the armed forces community in the future. Visit the ECS website to learn more about employment opportunities:
