Re-signing the Armed Forces Covenant to show our ongoing commitment to the Armed Forces Community. Our Veterans and reservists proudly wear their uniform as we also celebrate #Reservesday.
Network Rail signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2015, and since then the company has worked closely with the Ministry of Defence to transition skills into the rail industry and develop a forces-friendly environment with its workplace. Gold Award winning employers have to first make pledges under the Armed Forces Covenant, then demonstrate and advocate their support for the Armed Forces. Network Rail have a host of company initiatives and policies in place to encourage and support Service personnel in its workforce, including a dedicated defence engagement manager and granting additional leave to Reservists so that they can fulfil their training requirements.
