Partnership strengthens DX’s support of the Armed Forces
Leading independent mail, parcels and logistics end-to-end network operator in the UK and Ireland, DX, today announces it has signed the official Armed Forces Corporate Covenant as part of a commitment to hire heroes into the workforce. DX is one of the first logistics companies to sign this official covenant.
The charity Hire a Hero supports Service Leavers and Veterans in making the successful transition in to civilian life. Hire a Hero staff, mentors and volunteers support former members of the Armed Forces in the transition period helping them secure jobs in their desired field.
This commitment to Hire a Hero serves to complement DX’s ongoing support of Scotty’s Little Soldiers, which is dedicated to supporting the children of men and women killed whilst serving in the British Armed Forces.
In announcing the news, Petar Cvetkovic, chief executive of DX, said:
“We’re thrilled to announce this new partnership, which will bring highly trained individuals into our business whilst supporting those that have served our country. The partnership will benefit our existing employees and the performance of the business overall. DX shares many goals and ideals with the Armed Forces; it is our daily mission to deliver great service through our people, ensuring our Customers’ items are Delivered Exactly.
We’ll be supporting Hire a Hero through employing as many ex-service men and women as possible, as well as help with CV writing, interview coaching, work placements and career counselling.”
