Brigadier Richard Carter, Commander 11th Signal and West Midlands Brigade along with Majors Samantha Brettell and John Reynolds and Phil Sinclair WMRFCA joined delegates from Traffix to sign the prestigious document pitch side with Harlee Dean before kick-off against Ipswich Town.

The temporary traffic and event management service is demonstrating their recognition of the value that armed forces personnel and their families can bring to the workforce and the wider community.

The Covenant focuses on helping members of the armed forces community have the same access to government and public services and products as any other citizen. This support is provided in a number of areas including: education and family well-being, access to healthcare, financial assistance, discounted services and starting a new career.

Traffix are providing opportunities to ex-forces personnel to start a new career in temporary traffic and event management.

“It’s fantastic to work in partnership with the Armed Forces Resettlement Transition,” said Derek Vinning, Operations Director, Traffix.

“We are actively recruiting ex-forces personnel in the knowledge that the candidates are of strong calibre with personal attributes such as excellent worth ethics, reliability, self-motivation and leadership skills. We share the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant as a whole and we are excited to welcome new employees to Traffix.”

Brigadier Richard Carter, Commander 11th Signal and West Midlands Brigade, said: “I am delighted to be supporting Traffix with their pledge to the armed services community. By signing the Armed Forces Covenant they are affirming their promise to provide ongoing pastoral and training to service leavers and supporting reservists.

“They recognise and understand the unique skills and talent that armed forces personnel can bring to their business.”
