McGill’s Bus Group is proud to have signed the Armed Forces Covenant, promising to support local armed forces communities across Scotland. This pledge ensures that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly.
By signing the pledge, McGill’s joins more than 10,000 organisations across a range of sectors that have committed to providing fair treatment for veterans, serving personnel, reservists and their families.
The business already supports the armed forces in a number of ways, including free travel for serving military personnel on all buses, engaging with armed forces charities and in recruitment drives.
The Group is a committed armed forces-friendly employer, recognising military skills and qualifications in our recruitment and selection process. McGill’s employ many ex-servicemen and women across different areas of the business and work with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) to support the employment of service leavers.
Alex Hornby, Group Managing Director at McGill’s, said: “We recognise the contribution that service personnel, both regular and reservist, veterans and military families make to our organisation, our community and to the country, which is why we’re committed to upholding the Armed Forces Covenant.
“As a nation we have a duty to ensure that that those who have helped to keep us safe and their families, are treated fairly and supported in their endeavours.
“The armed forces community possess a wealth of skills, talent and experience that will be invaluable as we look to build our workforce of the future.”
