Mersey Maritime recognised for support for the armed forces

By Mersey Maritime

Mersey Maritime has been awarded the Employer Recognition Scheme Bronze Award for its work in providing support to the armed forces community and defence by going above and beyond their covenant pledges.

The Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) offers a three-tier approach of bronze, silver and gold awards, recognising the different levels of commitment provided by employers. This allows the Ministry of Defence to publicly thank and honour those organisations for their support.

Mersey Maritime CEO, Chris Shirling-Rooke said “I’m delighted with the progress Mersey Maritime is making in supporting the armed forces community, from signing the Armed Forces Covenant back in September 2018 to achieving this Bronze Award.

The journey for businesses wanting to make a difference really couldn’t be more straight forward and I would encourage all our members to look at what their business could do to support this community.”
