MKC gets gold award for armed forces support
MKC’s support of the Armed Forces Community has been awarded gold status in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme. The scheme encourages employers across the country to do more for the armed forces in their area. MKC signed the Armed Forces Covenant in 2012, and support MK’s service personnel community in many ways, including a guaranteed veteran interview scheme. We achieved bronze status in 2016 and silver in 2019. We’re proud of colleagues who are reservists and adult cadet force volunteers.
