We are proud supporters and signatories of the Armed Forces Covenant.
Established in 2000, the Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge to those who have served in the armed forces that they and their families will be treated with fairness and respect by the community, economy and society.
Leaving the armed forces can be a difficult time for many who once served their country. Adjusting the life outside the bubble, getting access to help and support and entering the civilian jobs market are just a few of the challenges.
By signing the Armed Forces Covenant, we want to promote the fact that we are an armed forces-friendly organisation.
We recognise many of the skills developed during a career in the forces can be beneficial to our business, which is why we often actively seek to recruit ex-service personnel. This policy not only provides an outstanding career opportunity for service leavers, but also provides us with a unique insight into the needs and wants of the military customer.
Through our Media Force brand, we provide welfare internet access to a number of military bases throughout the UK, serving thousands of customers. Our service helps those living away from friends and family to keep in touch as well as provide entertainment and a study resource when required. As we’re committed to providing better value services for our armed forces customers, we provide this at a lower cost than the equivalent products we provide to other customer sectors.
The Armed Forces Day recognises the contribution made by those who serve or have served our country. Media Force will promote awareness of this as well as participating in local events, demonstrating our commitment to this annual celebration.
Media Force and PCCW Global recognise the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans and military families bring to our business and we seek to uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant.
