VICTVS receives Gold Award from Defence Employer Recognition Scheme

We are very pleased to announce that, following an appraisal of our application and supporting evidence by the Reserve Forces and Cadets Association (Yorkshire), VICTVS has been awarded gold by the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme encourages employers to support defence, and to inspire others to do the same.  Employer organisations that share the values of the Armed Forces Covenant and actively seek to support serving members of the Armed Forces, along with veterans, reservists, cadets and their families, can apply for the ERS bronze, silver or gold award, with conditions attached to each.

On 25th November 2021, VICTVS attended an awards ceremony at the Royal Armouries in Leeds to formally receive this award from the Lord Lieutenant of West Yorkshire, Mr Ed Anderson CBE.  As a result of lockdowns, this was the first ERS awards ceremony to be held for two years, and it brought together around 300 people from employer organisations across the north of England.

In response to this achievement, VICTVS CEO Ben Clayson said, “At VICTVS we are extremely proud to have received the 2021 ERS Gold Award.  As a business founded by, and employing service personnel, we understand the challenges and benefits of working with the Armed Forces mindset.  It is a real privilege to receive this acknowledgement and we look forward to finding new ways to support the Forces community in the years ahead.”
