Retain Limited’s Founder and Director, Jamie Gibbs, recently attended a noteworthy event where he was presented with the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award.
The achievement of this esteemed award was first announced in the summer, and the official ceremony took place at Stonehouse Barracks in Plymouth. Notably, the Gold Award follows our prior achievements of the ERS Silver and Bronze awards, both of which were secured in the previous year.
The acquisition of the Gold Award underscores our steadfast commitment to supporting the armed forces community, aligning with the principles outlined in the Armed Forces Covenant. The ERS scheme employs a tiered structure encompassing bronze, silver, and gold, thereby acknowledging and differentiating employers based on their varying levels of commitment. This framework enables the Ministry of Defence to express gratitude and publicly recognise organisations for their support.
Given that a considerable portion of our workforce, including Jamie, has previously served in the British armed forces, we continue to provide employment opportunities that facilitate the transition of former armed forces personnel into civilian life in the UK.
Moreover, Retain Limited actively engages in initiatives to educate, train, and craft customised career pathways tailored to individual skill sets. This approach is designed to empower and motivate individuals towards a successful and fulfilling life following their military service.
