South East Silver ERS Awards 2023

On Wednesday 6 September 2023 we were delighted to celebrate our Silver Employer Recognition Scheme award winners in the beautiful grounds of Admiralty House at HM Naval Base Portsmouth. 

Guests were also treated to amazing performances by the RAF Salon Orchestra and the Royal Marines Band. 

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) encourages employers to support defence and inspire other organisations to do the same. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community and align their values with the armed forces covenant.
