Plymouth Citybus has received the Silver Defence ERS Award again.

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Award marks support of the armed forces - employers need to sign the Armed Forces Covenant and demonstrate that service personnel and those who are part of the armed forces community aren’t at a disadvantage when it come to recruitment.

Minister for Defence People and Veterans, Leo Docherty MP said: “I would like to thank all the organisation who have proven their support for the Defence community during such unprecedented and challenging times.

“The vast range of those recognised this year demonstrates how employing the Armed Forces community makes a truly positive and beneficial impact for all employers, regardless of size, sector or location.”

Around 1 in 5 of our employees are former members of the armed forces, bringing vital skills to our workforce.
