Pertemps employees’ recent contributions have raised £2,643 to our Armed Forces, which was spilt between ABF, Poppy Appeal and the Royal British Legion. Last year our employees got stuck in and took part in a three-day Army Reserve challenge, pushing them to their limits in aid of Reserves day.
Pertemps have developed a close relationship with the Ministry of Defence over the years, due to our proactive work in finding reservists and ex-soldiers driving jobs. After being awarded the Gold Award, the MOD’s highest recognition for employer support, the business has always actively championed the work of reservists by organising fundraising events and activities over Reserves Week.
Due to Pertemps efforts we were invited to an event with The Royal Yeomanry, where Major Jules Ward Officer Commanding of D Squadron The Royal Yeomanry and Major John Reynolds representative of the Army Benevolent Fund and The Soldiers’ Charity, were presented with a cheque by HM Forces Liason Manager, Major Darren Knight, and Jordan Lucid Pertemps Employee.
Major Darren Knight, said “Members of Pertemps experienced an action-packed weekend with the Army Reserves in 2018 which included command tasks, planning exercises, survival exercises, and navigation exercises. All who took part thoroughly enjoyed the experience and said it was a perfect opportunity to have your communication, motivation, team building, and problem-solving skills tested in a testing environment.”
