Pall-Ex first signed the Armed Forces Covenant in July 2019, pledging to treat those who serve, or have served, and their families with fairness and respect
Pall-Ex wanted to guarantee that they will not be in any way disadvantaged within our business as a consequence of their service.
In March 2020, we re-signed the Armed Forces Covenant, with updated pledges to receive Silver status. We are now looking to reach the gold standard by offering the best opportunities for serving and ex-service personnel as well as cadet instructors and their families.
Our ultimate ambition is to be the employer of choice for those leaving the military and we are working hard to realise this goal.
We have many ex military employees within Pall-Ex in all roles throughout the business including drivers, operation and our director of International Business Units, Mark Steel came into the business as the sales and marketing director after leaving the RAF. There are so many opportunities within Pall-Ex for Veterans, Cadet Instructors, Reservists and their families to support their careers beyond the military.
ON A NEW MISSION
This year we are looking to get the gold status for Pall-Ex to ensure that we are offering the best possible opportunities for veterans' and military personnel. Part of this process will see Pall-Ex offering 12 days leave for reservists, 7 days for cadet instructors to attend camp and many other benefits.
FUNDRAISING AND AWARDS
Since 2019, our main chosen charity for Pall-Ex is Combat Stress and in 2021 we raised £35,000 for this charity and we are currently taking part in the March in March campaign in 2022. It is important for us to raise money for Combat Stress as they are the UK's leading charity for Vetrans' mental health.
