Vigilance was founded a decade ago with clear social enterprise goals. A top priority back in 2008 was to help veterans’ transition into civilian life within our day to day business. Much water has passed under the bridge, but in 2019 we stay true to our founding principles. Among our recent initiatives has been our engagement as signatories to the Armed Forces Covenant, and our participation in its Employer Recognition Scheme. We proudly support those who serve through this initiative and in this podcast we interview Drew Jeacock to tell us more.
