Transport for Wales has announced that it has pledged support to the Armed Forces Community by signing a commitment to honour the Armed Forces Covenant.

The agreement acknowledges that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, should be treated with fairness in the community.

As part of the pledge, TfW will ensure that no member of the Armed Forces will face any disadvantage during recruitment.

The operator has also said that they are keen to promote that they are a fully inclusive organisation and their commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant is simply another way of demonstrating this.

What did the officials say?

James Price, Transport for Wales CEO said:

“Transport for Wales is proud to be supporting the Armed Forces Community and we have signed and committed to the Armed Forces Covenant.

“We are an open and transparent organisation, delivering a £5 billion investment programme to transform transport in Wales. We are growing and recruiting, and we welcome applicants from the armed forces who will bring a wealth of vocational skills and experience.”

Marie Daly, Transport for Wales Rail Services People and Engagement Director added:

“As an employer, we recognise the value that serving personnel, veterans and military families contribute to our business and our country. We are proud to support those that serve our country and proud to honour the Armed Forces Covenant.

“We look forward to working with the Career Transition Partnership (CPT) and others to support the employment of veterans and service spouses / partners with Transport for Wales Rail Services, and promoting the employment of defence personnel across the wider railway industry.”

Karl Gilmore, Transport for Wales Rail Programme Director, said:

“As an ex-serving veteran of 14 years service, I am proud to support TfW’s pledge towards the Armed Forces Covenant. There is an opportunity to draw upon a pool of highly trained, talented and motivated individuals from the Armed Forces community, to help TfW transform transport across Wales.”
