We are proud to announce our recent signing of the Armed Forces Covenant and the receiving of the Bronze Award from the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS). This reflects our dedication to supporting the armed forces community and creating meaningful employment opportunities for veterans, reservists, and their families.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge made by businesses and organisations to recognise the valuable contributions made by serving personnel, veterans, and their families. By signing this covenant, Cheshire West Recycling has committed to upholding a range of initiatives, including providing fair employment opportunities.

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Bronze Award is presented by the Ministry of Defence to employers who actively engage with and support the armed forces community.

“Through our participation in the Armed Forces Covenant and attainment of the Bronze Award, CWR is communicating our commitment to those who have served their country and that we value the skills, experience, and dedication they bring to the workplace.” said Jody Sherratt, Operations Director (interim).

Cheshire West Recycling will continue its efforts to further enhance its support for the armed forces community, with the ultimate goal of achieving even higher recognition through the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.
