We are proud to support the NHS-wide Step into Health scheme, providing career paths for ex-military personnel.

Providing career paths for ex-military personnel

We understand the value that employing armed forces workers can bring, for both an organisation and the individual, and SCW supports workers leaving the armed forces to find work in the NHS.

SCW has signed the Armed Forces Covenant, which reflects our commitment to a wider armed forces agenda, representing a promise that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly.

We are proud to hold the Defence Employers Recognition Scheme Silver Award in recognition of our support to armed forces, reservists, veterans and their families through the Step into Health Scheme and our Armed Forces Working Group. We made our pledge of commitment to the Step into Health Scheme in 2017 and re-signed it in June 2022.

The Armed Forces Working Group is made up of SCW staff who represent veterans, reservists and forces family members. They have worked on a range of elements to make our employment offer more inclusive and appealing.

If you would like to know more about how we support armed forces personnel or would like to speak to someone from the Armed Forces Working Group please contact our EDI and Wellbeing team.

You can also get in contact with Step into Health, who connect members of the armed forces to NHS organisations. 

SCW is committed to the wider armed forces agenda and promises that those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly.
