​Defence Employer Recognition Scheme

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) encourages employers to support defence and inspire others 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.

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council was awarded a silver award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) September 2016, in recognition the council:

  • demonstrates support for service personnel issues and employ at least one member of the armed forces community
  • actively communicates and upholds a positive stance to their employees via established HR policies and procedures
  • show flexibility towards annual training commitments and mobilisation of reservist employees and support the employment of cadet instructors, armed forces veterans​ (including wounded, injured and sick) and military spouses/partners

The council has aspirations to work towards gold award status.​
