Armed Forces Covenant


Support those who have served our country

As an Armed Forces Covenant signatory, we encourage any organisation that is interested in supporting the Armed Forces community to sign up to the covenant. It is a simple way to show your support and make a real difference to those who have served our country.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a voluntary pledge that demonstrates support for the Armed Forces community, including both serving personnel and veterans. A pledge could be as straightforward as implementing an HR policy that grants paid leave for Reserve or Cadet Force Adult Volunteer (CFAV) duty, providing a discount on products or services, or adopting a positive approach toward hiring Service Leavers.

Becoming a Forces-friendly employer

The West Midland RFCA works with organisations to support the engagement objectives of the Armed Forces, raise awareness of the Reserve Forces and Cadets, and encourage organisations to support service leavers, reservists, and CFAV.
We know from experience that supporting Armed Forces personnel brings skills such as a reliable work ethic, self-motivation, leadership, and teamwork to your organisation. These attributes can lead to enhanced productivity and create a positive team environment focused on efficiency in the workplace.
Businesses are dealing with the current skills shortage, and we know that the Armed Forces provide exceptional training, creating excellent candidates for a wide range of roles. Armed Forces-friendly employers can provide opportunities for those seeking a career change and looking to gain new skills.

Sign up to the Employer Recognition Scheme

If your organisation is interested in supporting the Armed Forces community, there are many ways to get involved. You can learn more about the Armed Forces Covenant and the Employer Recognition Scheme on the West Midland RFCA website at
If you would like to speak with one of our Armed Forces Champions about what it takes to engage effectively with the Armed Forces community and how it can positively impact your organisation, please call us on 0330 113 0004 or email
We are committed to the Armed Forces Covenant and encourage other organisations to make the pledge. Supporting the Armed Forces community is very important to us as an organisation, and to me personally.
