22 Aug Stansted Airport scoops top Armed Forces award
London Stansted Airport’s support for serving and retired military personnel and reservists has been recognised with the prestigious Armed Forces Employer Recognition Scheme Silver award.
The award comes just 13 months after Stansted became the first airport in England to pledge support for the Armed Forces community and their families by signing up to the UK Armed Forces Covenant.
London Stansted is the biggest employment site in the region, employing over 12,000 people across 200 companies. With its close proximity to Colchester Garrison and Carver Barracks, near Saffron Walden, its workforce includes many veterans and serving reservists.
The airport will be presented the award in November at Emmanuel College, Cambridge.
