The infrastructure services and engineering company has secured a renewed five-year revalidation under the MOD’s Gold Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) for its “exceptional support” to the Armed Forces community.
Initially awarded in 2018, Amey says the revalidation acknowledges the company’s “long-term commitment to the military community” and highlights its “sustained support to implementing forces-friendly initiatives into their business”.
Amey works alongside the Forces Transition Group, Forces Families Jobs, and the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to provide employment opportunities to service leavers.
Additionally, Amey collaborates closely with BuildForce, an industry-led programme connecting veterans and service leavers to opportunities in the construction sector. Amey’s network of mentors are fully trained to provide guidance, support, and assistance with CV writing, mock interviews, and work experience placements, with the goal of offering suitable employment positions within Amey and its extensive supply chain.
In the last three years, these partnerships have resulted in the successful recruitment of 170 individuals from the armed forces and the broader military community.
Amey also reaffirmed its commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant by granting Reserves 10 days of paid leave annually for training purposes, reinforcing its dedication to recruiting and supporting members of the Army, Royal Naval, Royal Marines, and Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve.
In November, Amey celebrated a milestone of 15 years in partnership with the Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI), contributing over £4.3 million and more than £730,000 in social value to the economy. Amey procures signage from RBLI for use across its transport, rail, and facilities management markets.
Andy Milner, Amey’s CEO said: “The recognition of Amey as a forces-friendly organisation emphasises its alignment with the Armed Forces Covenant. We are proud to support those who ensure the safety of our country by ensuring they have the vehicles, equipment, workplaces, and housing they need. Whether through partnerships, charities or recruitment opportunities, Amey continues to promote collaborative efforts that contribute to an armed forces-friendly environment.”
