Our commitment to being a forces-friendly organisation

CGI is proud to uphold the Armed Forces Covenant and support the armed forces community. We recognise the contribution that service personnel both regular and reservist, veterans and military families make to our organisation, our community and to the country.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a pledge that those who serve or have served in the armed forces and their families should be treated fairly and not face disadvantages when seeking access to public or private goods and services in the UK.

As an armed forces friendly organisation we aim to act, support and respect this important community. Our activities range from recruiting and supporting veterans in our business through our Uniformed Services Network; enabling reservists and cadet force adult volunteers who work at CGI to take part in training; and supporting the wider community for example engaging the Cadet Forces in STEM learning.

Employer Recognition Scheme

CGI is delighted to have achieved the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) Gold Award, for demonstrating our commitment to being an Armed Forces-friendly company.

The Defence Employer Recognition Scheme encourages employers to support defence and inspire others to do the same. The scheme encompasses bronze, silver and gold awards for employer organisations that pledge, demonstrate or advocate support to defence and the armed forces community, and align their values with the Armed Forces Covenant.


Renewing our commitment

We’re very proud to have renewed our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant.

As an organisation we acknowledge that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness and respect in the communities, economy and society. 

We believe all organisations no matter what industry they work in should consider signing the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant to support and recognise the outstanding work of our UK armed forces community.

We recognise the extraordinary skills military personnel develop while putting their lives on the line.

It’s why we’re keen to recruit currently serving reservists and ex-services personnel and support their transition to a civilian career.
