Stoke on Trent City Council


Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

Stoke on Trent City Council is proud to support the Armed Forces community and offer employment opportunities to the Armed Forces network. The Council currently holds the Gold Award for the Armed Forces Covenant.

We support our Reservists with time off for public duties outlines in our Special Leave Policy. Staff may also request days of unpaid leave for any activities of the Reserve Forces which is neither compulsory mobilisation nor training.

We have a number of employees within the council with an armed forces background and we encourage more to apply for our vacancies.
