Our Armed Forces Commitment

Micheldever to proudly sign the Armed Forces Covenant

Micheldever Group Ltd pledges to The Armed Forces Covenant to help support ex-forces personnel.

We are immensely proud to be in a select group of employers who have signed The Armed Forces Covenant - a promise to the nation and to those who have served that personnel will be treated fairly in their careers after leaving the military.

By signing the Covenant, Micheldever Group Ltd committing to its five pledges; tailored employment transition and support; accommodation of employee commitment to the Reserve Forces; support to local community and cadets; participation in Armed Forces Day; and offer of discounts to members of the Armed Forces community.

The Pledges of The Armed Forces Covenant

The Armed Forces Convenant consists of five pledges outlined in full below:

  1. 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 transition for Service Leavers;
    • by holding introduction days for service leavers in order to get to know the business and roles. By advertising on the CTP Job board and offering Web chats events to answer queries interested service leavers may have regarding the opportunity.
  2. Seeking to support our employees who choose to be members of the Reserve forces;
    • by accommodating their training and deployment where possible
  3. Offering support to our local cadet units, either in our local community or in local schools, where possible;
    • by offering to speak at local schools about the apprenticeship schemes on offer with the Micheldever Tyre Services Group
  4. Aiming to actively participate in Armed Forces Day;
    • by attending where possible the Armed Forces Day
  5. Offering a discount to members of the Armed Forces Community;
    • by supporting the Armed Forces community with the ‘Employee Benefits’ Discount scheme

As an employer with an established track record of helping ex-forces personnel transition into new careers, we are absolutely committed to ensuring opportunities and growth. Protyre Area Manager, Jack Kempton, has progressed his career from tyre fitter to Area Manager in just seven years:

“It was quite nerve-racking when I first came out of the military because you’re so used to a certain way of life and trying to find something that you can adapt that way of life to in civvy street is quite hard. The team at Protyre have been really good in guiding me through and I’m now in a role I thoroughly enjoy.”

Micheldever Group Ltd is always seeking to take on ex-forces personnel and held its first insight day in 2019, designed to give service leavers a glimpse of life working for the company. The day was a huge success with attendees able to learn more about the many career possibilities by chatting with current staff and having the opportunity to delve into specific job roles within the company.
