Lender shows its active support for Armed Service Personnel

Aldermore has signed the Armed Forces Covenant in the presence of two-star Air Vice-Marshal Ranald Munro and several colleagues who have served in the Armed Forces.

The covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly. It is a means whereby businesses, local authorities, charities and community organisations can show their commitment by supporting reservists and those who have served and fought for their country.

Aldermore has committed to focus on achieving this through several strategic aims including supporting the employment of veterans, supporting its own employees who are members of the Reserve Forces and offering corporate training opportunities to Armed Forces Personnel to assist their transition to a civilian career.


Steven Cooper, chief executive of Aldermore, says: “Thank you to Air Vice-Marshal Ranald Munro for joining us and our own veterans to discuss how we can continue to ensure that our support of the Armed Forces Community is best in class. This signing signifies Aldermore’s commitment to supporting the Armed Forces community and upholding the Covenant’s values.”

Two-star Air Vice-Marshal Ranald Munro CB CBE TD VR DL ADC, comments: “It’s vitally important that companies, like Aldermore, provide employment pathways for our Armed Forces community - Veterans following their service and serving Reservists - to build engaging and rewarding careers. Veterans, Reserves and their families bring a wealth of valuable experience and transferable skills that complement and enrich the financial services sector.”

And Ben Taylor, Chief Customer Experience Officer at Aldermore and himself an Army veteran, adds: “I’m proud to work for a bank that recognises the valuable skills that ex-services personnel will have gained during their time in a military role. These experiences will have taught people like me how to coach and support people in the toughest of environments.

“Signing the covenant acts as a foundation that connects the bank with ex-services personnel and enables those from a military background to transition and put these life experiences into practice in a civilian career.”
