Armed Forces Covenant

At Essential Site Skills, we take immense pride in our unwavering support for the dedicated members of the Armed Forces who selflessly serve our nation. Notably, a significant portion of our management team comprises individuals with military backgrounds, and many of our trainers and assessors have also proudly served.

Our commitment to the Armed Forces is so profound that we have taken the initiative to officially pledge our support by becoming signatories of the Armed Forces Covenant. This covenant serves as a collective commitment by UK-based companies to champion and advance the well-being and interests of our service men and women.

Our pledge involves actively promoting and participating in significant events such as Armed Forces Day. Furthermore, we are dedicated to bridging the gap between the Construction Industry and the Forces community. This commitment extends to offering training opportunities, facilitating NVQ qualifications, and providing guidance and resources to ensure a seamless transition for ex-service personnel.
