Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant
Rolls-Royce plc recognises the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to our business. We will seek to uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, by:
• seeking to support the employment of veterans young and old and work with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) and charities including the Royal British Legion (RBL) and X Forces, by offering tailored work experience packages and knowledge exchange support;
• our team offering informal networking opportunities and introductions to the teams wider personal networks;
• endeavouring to offer a degree of flexibility in granting leave and flexible working conditions for Service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment;
• recognising the value of military skills and qualifications when recruiting and interviewing for new positions;
• offering support to our local cadet units, either in our local community or in local schools, where possible;
• making Rolls-Royce UK sites available to support events for recruiting, awareness, training and other reasonable requests where possible;
• creating a network of contacts between Rolls-Royce sites and their local units and recruiters.
