Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

- We will always consider offering an interview to spouses/partners if they meet the selection criteria laid out in a job
- We will support spouses and partners to work flexibly enabling them to achieve a work/life balance;
- We will support training and development which helps staff not only in their NELFT role, but will also be of benefit in future employment;
- We will look sympathetically on requests for leave before, during or after a partner’s deployment according to
