Armed Forces Silver Award

John Clark Motor Group has been given the silver award by the Ministry of Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) which encourages employers to support the defence and armed forces community.

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) encourages employers to support the defence and armed forces community and inspires others to do the same. The ERS is designed to recognise support provided, by a wide range of private and public sector organisations, to defence and armed forces.

John Clark Motor Group has been recognised as an employer that pledges, demonstrates, and advocates support to the defence and armed forces communityand with values aligned to the Armed Forces Covenant we have received the silver award.

Major General Bill Wright, General Officer Scotland presented the award and said:

“We are here this evening, and at last able to do it in person, to give recognition to employers as part of the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme. You may be interested to know that the number of companies joining the Scheme is rising rapidly – there are currently 7,500 across the UK, and so too are the number of companies reaching silver standard – now sitting at 1,160.

“We hope that now that you too have reached the Silver standard you will go on to become advocates to other businesses and organisations on behalf of the Defence family and thereby qualify to be considered for the gold level award.

“On behalf of Defence, I thank you for your commitment and for all that you are doing.”
