Veolia supports Armed Forces through Covenant

10 December 2015

The UK resource management company, Veolia, has demonstrated its ongoing commitment to our Armed Forces by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. By upholding the covenant the company recognises those who perform military duty and the value of their contribution.

The signing ceremony which took place at Tidworth Garrison, Hampshire on Thursday 3 December was undertaken by Major General Alastair Dickinson and Veolia’s Executive Director, Robert Hunt.
As a longstanding employer for many ex-servicemen and women, Veolia has benefited from the skills that, reservists, veterans and military families can bring to the business. Under the agreement Veolia will provide a wide range of additional support by developing a mutually beneficial strategic relationship which promotes that they are an armed forces-friendly organisation.
Included in the agreement is the appointment of an Armed Forces Champion within Veolia UK who will promote the employment of service leavers and veterans, and work with employees who are members of the Reserve Forces and those who work with Cadet Forces. The company will also help the careers of service spouses and partners and provide flexibility in granting leave for service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment.
Working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) Veolia will offer employment opportunities for regular and Reserve Forces and will also seek to enable serving members of the Regular or Reserve Forces to gain practical experience of energy management, water, or waste operations, relevant to their deployable roles. These typically include combined heat and power and industrial steam plant.
Marguerite Ulrich, HR Director, Veolia UK and Ireland, said “This Armed Forces Covenant emphasises our respect for the Royal Navy, the Army, and the Royal Air Force, together with their families. By pledging this support Veolia highlights the contribution the services make and seeks to actively help them during and after their service to our country.”
Fleur Thomas, Director Engagement, Defence Relationship Management, said:
“By signing the Armed Forces Covenant, Veolia has made a public declaration of support towards our Armed Forces community, recognising the core values and skills that military personnel can contribute to the energy, water and waste industries. By upholding the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant and developing initiatives that support Reservists, veterans, and their partners, Veolia is going the extra mile to back our Armed Forces community and the commitment they make to keeping our country safe.”
