Advent IM’s, Armed Forces Covenant officially issued today

News and information from the Advent IM team.

Advent IM’s, Armed Forces Covenant officially issued today.

Leading Independent Information Security Consultancy, Advent IM, has signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant. This officially pledges continued support to the Armed Services Community.

The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation to those who serve or who have served, and their families, that organisations signing this pledge will do all they can to ensure those who serve are treated fairly and are not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives.  The Armed Forces Covenant commits a business to support the Armed Forces Community by recognising the value serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans, and military families contribute to our businesses and our country.

Advent IM Co-founder, Director, and Armed Forces Champion, Julia McCarron, said of this pledge,

“From its inception Advent IM has been supporting our armed forces community as an organisation by virtue of the fact that our MD, Mike Gillespie, himself was a serving member of the armed forces. During our growth, we have recruited many ex-serving personnel, past, present and I have no doubt future, and supported those that continue/continued to provide reservist support. We have also actively supported the community through our supplier and associate network. Our Armed Services Covenant acts as an official pledge that Advent IM will continue to support the Armed Services Community and I felt, given our connections, it was only right that we should sign up. I’m delighted to say that our signed Covenant has now been officially issued. Advent IM will always remain a strong supporter of the Armed Forces, covenant or not. We recognise and admire the sacrifices and achievements of those serving and who have served, and their spouses and partners, and will continue to do so.”
