Brodie Engineering signs Armed Forces Covenant
Last month, Brodie Engineering signed the Armed Forces Covenant alongside Air Vice-Marshal Ross Paterson, the most senior RAF officer in Scotland. This is to affirm our commitment to supporting the Armed Forces.
Brodie Engineering employee, Phil Heaps, a Senior Aircraftsman (SAC) with 603 Squadron, was mobilised in November 2016 to provide force protection support to RAF bass in the UK.
Managing Director, Gerry Hilferty, says SAC Heap’s self-discipline and leadership qualities have greatly benefitted the workforce and was determined to back the Reservist by putting pen to paper.
He said: “We are delighted to sign the Armed Forces Covenant and fully support its ethos.
“Our experience of employing Reservists and ex-service personnel is excellent. Their team spirit, self-discipline and leadership skills are a valuable asset to our business. We highly recommend integrating Reservists within business and the workplace.”
More than 4,000 UK organisations from every sector of the economy have now signed the Armed Forces Covenant.
