"As signatories of the Armed Forces Covenant and Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award winners for our support towards the Armed Forces Community, our commitment to current and former members of the Armed Forces is clear.

We are incredibly proud that our workforce includes reservists, veterans, Cadet Force Adult Volunteers, and the spouses of those serving in the Armed Forces. Now, we want to ensure that we take every opportunity to support and grow this network even further.

Since joining AI, I have been given several opportunities to develop my career and enhance my skill set. I am proud to be part of an organisation that wants to support ex-military personnel and recognises the benefit our experience in the forces can bring. Moving from the forces to civilian life can be very challenging, so I look forward to being a part of this affinity group where we can hopefully support other people making that transition and bring the best out in everyone."
