The Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) acknowledges employers who have provided exceptional support to the armed forces community.

What is the bronze award?

Employers who have signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant can nominate themselves for a Bronze Award. This involves pledging their intention to support Defence and to take a positive stance towards reserves, cadet force adult volunteers and veterans who are either existing or prospective employees.
Bronze Award holders seek to promote an Armed Forces friendly position, and are open to employing reservists and supporting their training and mobilisation commitments.
