Celtic Sea Power sign the Armed Forces Covenant

Celtic Sea Power has become the latest organisation to adopt the Armed Forces Covenant in the South West. Joining the nearly 12,000 businesses who have already made their pledges across the UK.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation, ensuring that those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, and their families, are treated fairly. A wide variety of organisations who wish to support the Armed Forces community; including businesses from sole-trader to multinational, public bodies, or charities, can sign the Covenant and publicly declare their commitments.

Celtic Sea Power’s Covenant includes support to Reservists, Service leavers/Veterans, as well as Service spouses, to provide a flexible working environment and employment opportunities taking into account the unique demands placed upon service personnel and their families. CSP has a strong existing connection to the services with a former marine and two naval aviators on the staff.

MoD’s Defence Relationship Management Regional Employer Engagement Director, Jon Beake, said “It’s fantastic that Celtic Sea Power joins over 1100 organisations across the South West that have pledged their support by adopting their own Armed Forces Covenants; it’s been a pleasure tailoring the pledges with them to make them relevant and mutually beneficial. It was also great that they chose to sign alongside Brigadier Jock Frasier, Naval Regional Commander for Wales, West of England and the Channel Islands on a site visit to the office in Hayle.”

Steve Jermy, Interim CEO of CSP stated “It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that CSP sign up to the Armed Forces Covenant. Not just to recognise the strong link that CSP have to the services. Offshore wind and supporting industries must embrace the skills and competencies that ex-service personnel can bring. There is a strategic need to build this into regional workforce development – work that CSP is leading on”

Brigadier Jock Fraser Royal Marines, Naval Regional Commander Wales, Western England and the Channel Islands said:
“I was delighted to sign the Armed Forces Covenant with Celtic Sea Power in Hayle today and to learn more about the organisation’s important role during my visit. In signing the covenant, Celtic Sea Power have formally noted the valued contribution serving personnel, veterans and their Service families make to the Celtic Sea Power team and the wider community. The Armed Forces continue to enjoy tremendous support from the public we serve in Cornwall as was so emphatically demonstrated on Armed Forces Day last June. At this exciting time for the renewable energy sector in the Celtic Sea region, I hope that other businesses will be inspired to sign the Armed Forces Covenant too.”
