It's Armed Forces Day!

Saturday 24th June 2017 is Armed Forces Day, here at CDS DS we see that as a great opportunity to salute our forces for all that they do.

Here at CDS DS celebrating this day of recognition towards our country’s serving and reservist forces is especially close to our hearts.

Over 10% of the CDS DS work force consists of Reservist members and CDS are proud to support these employees in their development both within the company and in their Reserve Force endevours.

CDS Defence Support has also signed the Armed Forces Covenant, an official document that pledges CDS to support any serving reservist employee over and above the expected level. CDS' Managing Director, Richard Bradley, firmly believes that this is an important pledge to make owing to the high number of reservist personnel working for the company and the unique set of skills and expertise that these employees bring.

This year we celebrated Armed Forces Day by encouraging our uniformed employees to wear that uniform with pride to work and also starting a series of “Meet The Team” posts on our social media accounts – starting with our Sales Director and serving Commander in the RNR, DiBs Bucknell – follow us on @CDS_Defence for more!
