Salute our forces

The Norse Group has won recognition for being a positive employer by seeking to take on those who have served in the Armed Forces or their spouses or partners.

We have successfully achieved the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme’s Silver Award Certificate for our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant.

Recognising the hugely positive role ex-Forces staff already fulfil within its services –– Norse Group signed the Ministry of Defence Armed Forces Covenant in May 2021.

Norse signed the Armed Forces Covenant last year, pledging to help those leaving the Armed Forces move towards new careers within the Group.

The Silver Award promotes being Armed Forces-friendly and open to employing reservists, armed forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses and partners.

Roger Smith, Group Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality (SHEQ) Director at Norse is spearheading the Group’s covenant commitment.

A former Warrant Officer Class 1 in the British Army, he is supported in the initiative by other ex-Forces colleagues and Reservists.

Roger said: “We achieved the Silver Award Certificate in recognition of our commitment to the covenant. Our aim now is to work towards the Gold Award Certificate next year.

“Norse is committed to supporting the wider Armed Forces community and recognises the part its family plays.

“Those who have served within the Armed Forces bring a set of skills and qualities that can be utilised and developed within a civilian role, and they transition and develop a new career outside the wire.”
