Supporting those who serve

CDS Defence Support are extremely proud that they have been awarded the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme at Silver level for 2017, one of only 16 companies in the South West Region to have been selected for the award!

This award recognises the commitment, over and above the ‘norm’, that CDS DS give to supporting employees that are part of the Armed forces community, whether that be as Reservists, Veterans or Cadet Force Members. This work ethic underpins CDS DS' whole ethos when it comes to the work they deliver and the care that we give to both our staff and customers.
