SSG support local Armed Forces Day
- Date: Wednesday 3rd July 2019
We were pleased to have exhibited at the 2019 Armed Forces Day event in Plymouth on Saturday 30th June.
We have a strong military background, with many of our consultants and trainers, as well as associate members, having previously served in the forces; ranging from Royal Engineers to Royal Navy to the Defence Fire Service.
In 2017, we joined 1,300 other businesses in adopting and signing the Armed Forces Covenant and in October 2018 we were proud recipients of the ‘Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award’. By signing the covenant, we endeavour to provide support in the employment of veterans young and old, service spouses and partners, and our own employees who choose to be members of the Reserve forces. Tim Harnett, Tutor and Consultant at SSG, serves as a member of the Territorial Army Reserves and well as a number of team members who are military spouses with partners who routinely deploy on overseas operations.
We are also an accredited ELCAS and CTP training provider, having delivered training to Royal Navy, Royal Marines, Royal Air Force and Army personnel in the last 24 months for both resettlement purposes and ongoing career development.
Our team had a great time welcoming everyone to the stand and discussing the many ways in which we can help both businesses and individuals.
Kim Halls, Membership Advisor at SSG, said “SSG had a very successful day at Armed Forces Day this year. We were able to have lots of conversations with people interested in Health and Safety Training; especially our Mental Health First Aid courses. We’re looking forward to attending next year already!”
