Thakeham is a proud signatory of the Armed Forces Covenant, having become the first home builder in the South East to receive a Bronze Award Armed Forces Covenant in 2020.

Since then, we have continued our unwavering commitment to the fair treatment and support of the armed forces community, recognising the value serving personnel, both regular and reservists, veterans and military families contribute to our business and the country. Subsequently, Thakeham achieved the Silver Award in 2021, an accolade which represents a deeper commitment to the recruitment of armed forces personnel and the promotion of armed forces policies throughout the company.

An ongoing commitment

Thakeham has committed to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and support the armed forces community. And will seek to uphold the principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, by: 

  • Providing compelling advocacy in regional and industry forums, promoting the Armed Forces Covenant and the Employer Recognition Scheme 
  • Promoting the fact that we are an armed forces-friendly organisation in our communications, and in our dealings with stakeholders
  • Encouraging suppliers, contractors and peer businesses to sign and uphold the Armed Forces Covenant, and promote best practice as an advocate in the industry
  • Seeking to support the employment of veterans young and old and working with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP}, in order to establish a tailored employment pathway for service leavers 
  • Providing placement opportunities for the professional development of service personnel, as well as placements for those in transition
  • Striving to support the employment of service spouses and partners
  • Offering support to our local cadet units, either in our local community or in local schools, where possible
  • Providing support to armed forces charities in order to promote community, and social mobility for those affected by military service, including families
