EVi supporting our Armed Forces

May 1, 2018

EVi Electric Vehicle Charge Points has signed the UK Armed Forces Covenant. 

In doing so the Dunfermline-based firm has made a commitment to support the country’s servicemen and women wherever and however it can and to ensure no member of the Armed Forces should suffer any disadvantage as a result of their service.

The 25 April signing – by Director Neil Beattie – took place at 154 Regiment RLC’s HQ in Dunfermline. The document was co-signed on behalf of the Ministry of Defence (MoD) by Lt Col Alan Wilkinson, the Commanding Officer of 154 Regt.

EVi’s commitments to honouring the Covenant includes pledges to:

  • Promote the fact it is an Armed Forces-friendly organisation.
  • Seek to support the employment of veterans young and old.
  • Strive to support the employment of Service spouses and partners.
  • Endeavour to offer a degree of flexibility in granting leave for Service spouses and partners before, during and after a partner’s deployment.
  • Seek to support employees who choose to be members of the Reserve Forces, including by accommodating their training and deployment where possible.
  • Aim to actively participate in Armed Forces Day.
  • Offer a discount to members of the Armed Forces Community via their website, through social media or in person of 10%.

The Covenant signing was organised by Highland Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association and attended – along with the signatories – by the organisation’s Regional Employer Engagement Director Michelle McKearnon.

Michelle said: “We are delighted that EVi has pledged their support to the Armed Forces family and we very much value their commitment. We are looking forward to working in partnership with them.”
