It is with great satisfaction that Intrepid Risk is the proud recipients of the Bronze Award from the Armed Forces Covenant Employer Recognition Scheme. The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly. The Armed Forces Covenant is working with businesses, local authorities, charities and community organisations to support the armed forces through services, policy and projects.
As a company whose ethics and values embody and reflect those very same values of the British military, based on loyalty, integrity, trust and high professional standards, it is fitting that our highly skilled and experienced security operatives are specifically selected from within our close network of high quality former British military personnel. Intrepid Risk has strong links to the British military and wholeheartedly supports this initiative.
As a signatory, Intrepid Risk commits to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the armed forces community. We recognise the value that serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to our business and to our country. Therefore, as signatories to the Armed Forces Covenant, Intrepid Risk recognises that:
The first duty of Government is the defence of the realm. Our Armed Forces fulfil that responsibility on behalf of the Government, sacrificing some civilian freedoms, facing danger and, sometimes, suffering serious injury or death as a result of their duty. Families also play a vital role in supporting the operational effectiveness of our Armed Forces. In return, the whole nation has a moral obligation to the members of the Naval Service, the Army and the Royal Air Force, together with their families. They deserve our respect and support, and fair treatment.
Those who serve in the Armed Forces, whether Regular or Reserve, those who have served in the past, and their families, should face no disadvantage compared to other citizens in the provision of public and commercial services. Special consideration is appropriate in some cases, especially for those who have given most such as the injured and the bereaved.
This obligation involves the whole of society: it includes voluntary and charitable bodies, private organisations, and the actions of individuals in supporting the Armed Forces. Recognising those who have performed military duty unites the country and demonstrates the value of their contribution. This has no greater expression than in upholding this Covenant.
