armed forces covenant

Mersey Maritime has been a proud signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant since 2018. As an organisation which represents the maritime industry in the Liverpool City Region and wider North West, we have close ties with the Armed Forces Community through our links with, amongst others, the Royal Navy. We recognise the contribution that Service personnel, both regular and reservist, and indeed their families, can make to our organisation, as they do to the wider community and the country.

Although a small business itself, Mersey Maritime has adopted ‘forces friendly’ policies that ensure when job opportunities arise, we are open to the employment of those either directly in the Armed Forces Community or through their family members. Our policies recognise the need to be flexible, accommodating and supportive as possible in meeting the often unique circumstances of such individuals.

We promote the work of the Armed Forces Covenant and its value to our wide membership base and encourage them to actively engage with the important focus it represents.

Has your business signed the Armed Forces Covenant? Find out more via this link or contact us and we will put you in touch with a local representative who can help you start your own journey in support of the Armed Forces Community: https://www.armedforcescovenant.gov.uk/
