BIT Group last night received their official silver award from HM Lord-Lieutenants of the County of Devon, Mr David Fursdon at Rockbeare Manor in Exeter.
BIT Group (formally known as BluescreenIT) gained the award for their ethos and culture for the past 17 years and alignment to supporting the MoD in all activities.
"BIT has continued to develop their ties with MoD community as a dedicated MoD resettlement centre alongside their commercial training arm based in Plymouth. Many veterans and service leavers have been employed during the evolution of the company and this will continue to be a focus as we continue to grow". Ben Franklin, BIT Group CTO.
Highlights of achievements:
BIT actively employ 4 veterans from diverse backgrounds across Army, Navy and Air Force.
We have one submariner on work placement, we are in talks with a second and proactively look at creating opportunities for all service leavers looking to transition into commercial operations, which we have run over the last 17 years.
Currently, we have one service leaver on long term sick working with us on a work placement, which we are keen to move into a full-time position.
Opening more opportunities as restrictions ease to help service leavers transition into employment or support the growth of our company.
Proactively recruiting Veterans and Service Leavers to support our ELCAS division, to provide vital information, guidance, and support for military personnel transitioning from the forces.
Actively working with the Career Transition Partnership as a preferred supplier to support MoD personnel.
