The Ministry of Defence’s Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) acknowledges employers who have provided exceptional support to the armed forces community and defence by going above and beyond their covenant pledges by employing and supporting reservists and veterans. Having been awarded Bronze earlier in the year, Vigilance is delighted to announce that the company has now been awarded ERS Silver, missing out on Gold by only the narrowest of margins, the team will be working hard towards achieving the top award next year.
