We are pleased to announce that METCloud have signed the Armed Forces Covenant to show our commitment to helping those who serve/have served and their families. The Covenant focuses on “helping members of the armed forces community have the same access to government and commercial services and products as any other citizen.” Some of they key principles outlined in our signed Armed Forces Covenant include:
- promoting the fact that we are an armed forces-friendly organisation;
- seeking to support the employment of veterans young and old and working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) in order to establish a tailored employment pathway for Service Leavers;
- seeking to support our employees who chose to be members of the Reserve forces…
Our Managing Director, Ian Vickers, had this to say:
“We are so proud to have recently signed the Armed Forces Covenant. METCloud is a fast growing organisation within the cyber security sector and so we need to recruit the right talent with the right skills, aptitude and attitude.
Armed forces personnel have incredible transferable skills such as excellent problem solving skills, working well under pressure, attention to detail, strong work ethic, proven team leadership and ability to motivate and communicate.
We also recognise the sacrifice our armed forces personnel make and therefore we see this engagement as a win-win scenario for all concerned.”
Businesses of all sizes can sign the Covenant, as well as charities, local authorities, public sector organisations and single services. So far, over 3000 organisations have made a promise to the nation by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. If you’re interested in signing, read more about how to get involved here.

This is also a a great opportunity for us to hightlight Armed Forces Day on Saturday 29th June 2019. Armed Forces Day is a chance for you to “show your support for the men and women who make up the Armed Forces community: from currently serving troops to Service families, veterans and cadets. There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved, from attending an event or joining us online to throwing a party or local event.” How will you celebrate?
