To coincide with the National Armed Forces Day celebrations taking place across the country tomorrow, Jaguar Land Rover’s armed forces community today gathered for their annual conference at the British Motor Museum.
A great turnout saw over 120 colleagues made up of Jaguar Land Rover’s armed forces veterans, reservists and supporters attend the annual event, now in its 4th year.
As a gold standard Armed Forces Covenant holder Jaguar Land Rover has publicly pledged to become an employer of choice for service leavers. We are pleased to have welcomed over 850 ex-service personnel to Jaguar Land Rover since 2014 and have a range schemes to support them transitioning into our business.
“The armed forces conference is a great opportunity to offer veterans and our reservists ongoing support and camaraderie within the business,” commented Rob Lummis, Head of Employee Experiences. “The annual conference is a high point in the year and gives our people the chance to come together from across the business to engage with us and feed into future armed forces activities at Jaguar Land Rover.”
At the conference attendees were given an update on our armed forces engagement activity, had the chance to network with fellow ex-forces leavers from across the business and were treated to a keynote speech from Land Rover ambassador and polar explorer Ben Saunders.
Alongside the event and ahead of Armed Forces Day, Jaguar Land Rover has strengthened its commitment to the armed forces with the donation of two F-TYPE sports cars to Mission Motorsport. The cars will be used by the charity to support the recovery and rehabilitation of ex service personnel affected by their time in the military. Read the full story here.
