South East Digital Agency Receives Armed Forces Covenant Bronze Award

0

Delivered Social became the first UK digital marketing agency to sign the Armed Forces Covenant and has now had the privilege of receiving the bronze award for their support. 

They made a pledge to acknowledge and support those who serve or have served our country and the incredible sacrifices they have made in doing so. 

With access to government commercial services limited for many in the Armed Forces community, the team wanted to make a stand and work actively to change that. 

Jonathan Bird, director of the agency commented:

“Not only are we proud of our active service personnel, but we are also proud of those who have moved on. We hope you’ll agree when we say that everyone in this community deserves ongoing support and recognition for what they do. It’s not just Portsmouth or Guildford that have links to the Armed Forces and so we’d love to see more businesses doing the same.”

Similarly, their regional director based at the Delivered Social Portsmouth office has strong links to the Covenant having signed it in his previous role as general manager of a Southsea Hotel – making it the first hospitality venue in Portsmouth to do so.

“As a business now opening in Portsmouth, we felt it was extremely important at Delivered Social to show our support to our Armed Forces by signing The Covenant pledge. Especially so, given the history our great waterfront city has with The Armed Forces.”

Businesses like these are allowing support to be offered to individuals and their families within the community through signing the Covenant, ensuring they have access to healthcare, financial assistance, education and accommodation amongst other things. 

With reservists and veterans bringing a host of skills to the workplace, it is essential employers recognise this and can support their transition out of the Forces. Only then will they begin to regain access to the benefits that come with work. 

Delivered Social is the first digital marketing agency in the UK to sign the Covenant, but hopefully not the last.
