Supporting Armed Forces Reservists
Mitie has introducing ten days paid leave annually to support its community of Reservists in fulfilling their service commitments.
The additional support for Reservists was announced to the Mitie Military network last week at Mitie’s resigning of the Armed Forces Covenant which was attended by Air Marshal Richard Knighton CB, Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff (Finance and Military Capability) and Phil Bentley, Mitie CEO. This reaffirms Mitie’s pledge to support veterans, reservists and serving personnel and aid their transition to civilian life.
Charles Antelme DSO, Head of Defence at Mitie, says:
"The armed forces community provides vital skills and knowledge to Mitie and the facilities management industry as a whole and so it is only right that we support them in return. By increasing our commitment to two week’s paid leave, we’re proud to be playing our part in making it as easy as possible for reservists to serve our country."
