TPN signs the Armed Forces Covenant

TPN has signed the Armed Forces Covenant, which is designed to ensure that service personnel, veterans and their families do not face any disadvantage in the provision of services, or in employment compared to a non-serving citizen.

Those who have served in the forces can sometimes find it hard to find civilian employment for which they are suited. Additionally service personnel and their families can have difficulties meeting normal service or employment clauses without penalty, for instance if they have to relocate suddenly, or they have lived in several different places without building up a credit record. The Armed Forces Covenant seeks to redress these deficiencies by raising awareness and encouraging employers and service providers to meet specific standards.

TPN’s pledge includes creating a training or employment pathway for ex-Forces candidates, and to support the employment of service spouses and partners. You can read the full covenant here.
