QinetiQ has signed the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant, a voluntary pledge that publically declares our intention to continue supporting the Armed Forces through our business dealings and relationship with the local communities in which we operate.
The covenant sets out a series of principles and commitments that build on the close relationship that QinetiQ already has with the Armed Forces, through our Reservist-friendly business policies, our support to the military, and our charity work.
We are one of the country’s leading defence suppliers and an employer of both reservists and ex-members of the Armed Forces; it is only natural that we would want to show the regard and respect that everybody at QinetiQ has for service personnel, their families, and the responsibilities they shoulder.
Signing the pledge, CEO Leo Quinn said: “The men and women of Britain’s Armed Forces do a terrific and difficult job on behalf of all of us. As well as thanking them for their service, our Covenant has given QinetiQ and the MOD a chance to formally recognise the link between that service and the value that ex-service personnel and reservists can add in their working lives beyond the military.
"The presence of a significant number of our colleagues with military experience helps to ensure that we continue to understand the culture, ethos and needs of those who, ultimately, are the beneficiary of the expertise delivered by our People Who Know How.”
