Local mortgage firm receives silver award for support to Armed Forces community
14th August 2017
Mortgage Advice Bureau Network Partner in Scotland has been awarded the Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) employer recognition scheme silver award for its ongoing commitment to the Armed Forces community less than one year after signing the Armed Forces covenant.
By confirming their commitment as an Armed Forces friendly organisation, Mortgage Advice Bureau recognises the value serving personnel; regulars and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to their country and bring to their business.
Dominic Taddei of Mortgage Advice Bureau says: “We are incredibly proud to be awarded silver. Armed forces personnel bring a wealth of transferable skills to employment in the financial services sector. We have already seen these benefits within our own business and as we roll out our recruitment strategy, we will be employing a growing number of veterans, both young and old and their families – including reservists – to our team.”
Lieutenant General Richard Nugee, Chief of Defence People, said: “Congratulations to all this year’s Employer Recognition Scheme Silver Award winners who have turned their willingness to make a difference to our brave Armed Forces into effective programmes of support. Your commitment is highly valued and is at the heart of all that can be achieved in every part of the country through the Armed Forces Covenant.
