Hertfordshire County Council is pleased to announce that it has received its prestigious Silver Award re-validated from the Ministry of Defence for its employer recognition scheme.
The award recognises the county council as an armed forces friendly organisation, which is open to employing reservists, armed forces veterans, cadet instructors and military spouses/partners.
Hertfordshire County Council Cabinet Member for Localism Terry Douris said: “We are delighted that the county council has been recognised again by the Ministry of Defence. As a signatory of the Hertfordshire Covenant, the county council is committed to ensuring that serving personnel and their families, veterans and reservists in our county are not disadvantaged through their service.
“We know that there are many military veterans living in Hertfordshire and we organise commemorative ceremonies for WW1, and WW2 anniversaries. We continue to work closely with the military through a variety of community engagement initiatives.”
In Hertfordshire, the covenant operates under the name Hertfordshire Heroes. The Hertfordshire Heroes website has lots of useful advice and information for reservists, veterans, serving personnel and their families. To find out more visit:
We also work closely with the military through our community engagement initiatives such as the annual Primary school Christmas art competition. Details on how to enter can be found here: https://www.hertfordshireheroes.org/latest-news/christmas-art-competition.aspx
