Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

Saab signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2015 and recognise the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to our business.  We uphold the Covenant principles by:

  • Promoting ourselves as an Armed Forces friendly organisation.
  • Advertising vacancies through the Career Transition Partnership and other sites.
  • Considering veterans, young and old, if they meet our job selection criteria.
  • Valuing and recognising military skills/qualifications when interviewing for positions.
  • Supporting the employment, where appropriate, of wounded, injured or sick veterans.
  • Endeavouring to provide flexibility when granting leave and looking sympathetically at specific requests for leave related to partner’s deployments.
  • On a case by case basis, considering special paid leave for bereaved employees or those whose spouse/partner has been injured.
  • Actively supporting personnel who are, or wish to become, members of the Reserve Forces.
  • Having a Reserve Forces Policy that supports Reservists by granting them an additional 10 days leave to cover training commitments.
  • Accommodating, wherever possible, mobilisation of Reservist employees on deployment.
  • Supporting charities and events related to the Armed Forces.
