Forces Friendly Employer

The Tank Museum furthers its commitment to the Armed Forces Community.

The Tank Museum has signed Armed Forces Covenant continuing the commitment to treat fairly those who serve, or have served, in the military and their families.

Director of The Tank Museum Richard Smith was joined by Colonel Crispin Lockhart (RAC) to formally sign the document, during The Tank Museum’s wellbeing event On Track. The Covenant is a promise from the nation to actively support the Armed Forces Community and ensure they are not disadvantaged in their day-to-day lives.

The Tank Museum has a longstanding commitment to the Armed Forces Community. From a local level employing spouses, service leavers, veterans and reservists, to the real-life stories told through exhibitions and the wider educational content consumed globally on The Museum’s YouTube and social media outlets.

Richard Smith said “At The Tank Museum, we recognise the considerable value of supporting those who have served, are currently serving, and those connected with the military.

“We are proud to call ourselves a forces-friendly organisation and are proud to have a number of people from the armed forces community within our workforce, including veterans, reservists, and spouses.

“Signing the Armed Forces Covenant for us as a Museum cements our continuing commitment to the military and their families.”
