gold_covenant_logo_200x364.jpgWe at North East Ambulance Service have pledged to support those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces, along with their families. To reflect this, we are proud to have signed the Armed Forces Covenant.

The Covenant focuses on supporting Armed Forces veterans, treating them with fairness and respect and ensures that they have the same access to government and commercial services and products as any other citizen. This includes starting a new career.

As an employer, the North East Ambulance Service has been granted gold award which means that we are open to employing reservists, Armed Forces veterans (including the wounded, injured and sick), cadet instructors and military spouses and partners.
