Armed Forces Covenant recruits Ceva Logistics

[ November 20, 2019   //   ]

Ceva has signed the Armed Forces Covenant to increase awareness of the company among ex-military personnel. It will also work with the British Armed Forces Resettlement Services and the Career Transition Partnership to advertise vacancies and attend career fairs.

Managing director UK, Ireland and Nordics, Eddie Aston, says: “The Armed Forces can bring a wealth of relevant skills and experience to the logistics industry and this opens up a diverse talent pool for us to utilize. Signing the Covenant shows that not only is CEVA an Armed Forces friendly organization but that we have inclusive recruitment practices and we welcome applications to join our team from everyone.”

Speaking at the signing ceremony, Major Ty-Lee Bearder said: “I would like to say thank you so much for signing this Covenant. For me this is personal, within the next year or so I will be one of the many ex-service personnel looking towards my next chapter and new career.

“To know that there are companies like CEVA Logistics who are located in my home town and ready to recruit ex-service men and women will make the transition from the Army easier for me, my family and others, I am incredibly thankful,” he added.
