Jonathan Lee Recruitment Receives Bronze Award from the Armed Forces Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS)

The Jonathan Lee blog section is a great place to discover all the latest news and views on the
sectors we work with and the services we provide.

Jonathan Lee Recruitment has been acknowledged for its continuing support of the armed forces community.

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS), run by the Ministry of Defence, was established to encourage employers to develop and maintain an armed forces-friendly environment. This bronze level certification recognises our ongoing commitment to defence staff, their families and the armed forces community.

This follows the recent signing of the Armed Forces Covenant: a written and publicised voluntary pledge, tailored to our business, which promotes that we are armed forces-friendly, employ service leavers and work with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to support service leavers, veterans and their families.

Jonathan commented: “We are delighted to have received the bronze level award from the ERS.

“At Jonathan Lee Recruitment we are committed to supporting the armed forces community and I am very proud that we not only employ a number of ex-service personnel across our business, but also help servicemen and women leaving the forces to find employment and make a smooth transition into civilian life.  

This award recognises our ongoing commitment to assisting and supporting the armed forces community into civilian life. We look forward to working towards the silver award next year.”


Our team consists of specialist recruiters alongside trade professionals including service leavers from the RAF, the British Army and the Royal Navy. We are proud to be working with current and ex-servicemen and women to provide support wherever necessary.
