Additional paid leave to colleagues in the Reserve Forces – Reserves Day 2022

We have been helping members of the ArmedForces, their families and the people of Plymouth solve their legal problemsfor over 200 years. An ever-increasing number of the Wolferstans team areveterans or come from a service family.

Armed Forces Covenant

Wolferstansoriginally signed the Armed Forces Covenant (AFC) in 2015 and re-signed in2022. The Armed Forces Covenant is also backed up by a three-tiered Awards Scheme which recognises thelevel of support delivered (and benefit gained) by the signatory organisation.

Wolferstans pledged to support the employment ofveterans and service families, take part in Armed Forces Day and continue to be a forces friendly service provider.

Since signingthe Covenant in 2015, the support for our armed forces communityinternally and in our wider community has grown year by year. This year we will once again be at PlymouthArmed Forces Day helping visitors have an amazing day celebrating our armedforces community.

Natasha Mason, Solicitor and ArmedForces Engagement Champion at Wolferstans, says, “Working with our armedforces community is such an important issue for us. We work collaboratively with an increasingnumber of organisations and charities to ensure that we are helping as manypeople as possible and referring our clients and colleagues to those charitiesand organisations who can provide the welfare support that we can’t. The number of veterans and service familiesworking for Wolferstans has grown significantly, so there is a real commitmentwithin the firm. Being a signatory ofthe covenant has been a major driving force for us and we look forward tocontinuing our support.”

Additional paid leave for colleagues in the Reserves Forces

Wolferstans oftenliaises with the local Reserve Units HMS Vivid and 165 Port and Maritime Regt RLC to advertise openevenings amongst colleagues who may be interested in a part-time militarycareer alongside their civilian career. In 2020, our Trainee Solicitors took part in aleadership and team building day with 165 Port and Maritime and came away withan insight into the various roles the Army Reserve offers.

Wolferstansoffer additional paid leave to colleagues in the Reserve Forces, enabling themto conduct their annual training. Wolferstans also offer up to 8 hours paidleave for colleagues to attend open days and interviews with the Reserveand Regular Armed Forces Careers Office.

Earlier thisyear, one of our colleagues said goodbye to Wolferstans and is currentlyenjoying his initial naval training at HMS Raleigh.

If you have any queries about the above, or are a member or former member of the Armed Forces community and would like to speak to our legal term, please contact our Armed Forces Champion, Natasha Mason on nmason@wolferstans.com
