Armed Forces Covenant
South Somerset District Council are signatories to the Somerset Armed Forces Covenant and are members of the Somerset Armed Forces Covenant Partnership.
As signatories to the Covenant, the council commits to support the Armed Forces Community. We also recognise the value Serving Personnel, both Regular and Reservists, Veterans and military families contribute to our business and our district.
As an employer the council welcomes applications for employment from veterans or family members of serving personnel. Council Vacancies are also advertised on the ‘Forces Families Jobs’ website.
The Council also has policies to support time-off, and mobilisation, for anyone who is a reservist.
We are also currently in the process of applying for the Armed Forces Employers Recognition Scheme Bronze Award.
