Let's go!

Heledd Kendrick CEO and Founder of Recruit for Spouses joins a new board to support and advise the Office of Veteran Affairs (OVA) in the ongoing support of veterans of our Armed Forces.

Marking one year since its establishment, the OVA are today launching a new board – the Veterans Advisory Board (VAB), comprised of experienced and prominent individuals in the Veterans’ sector. The board will build on the OVAs work over the past year with the aim to create a regular dialogue with the sector, provide advice, challenge and diversity of thought to the Government.

Speaking of the launch Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gove said:

“We owe a huge debt of gratitude to those who have served and the Office for Veterans Affairs exists to champion ex-service personnel not just in government, but across the United Kingdom.

“We have made significant progress for veterans since the OVA’s establishment, but there is much more to do and we’re determined to keep delivering for our veterans.

Minister for Defence People and Veterans Johnny Mercer said:

“I’m determined to make Britain the best country in the world to be a veteran.

“This has been an important year for veterans, with the new railcards, guaranteed interviews in civil service and extra funding to support military charities through COVID.

“We will continue to build on this work and further drive the veterans agenda across government.”

Heledd joins a group of passionate and committed individuals brought together with a united vision, to ensure veterans of our Armed Forces face no disadvantage compared to other citizens.

Speaking of the appointment, Heledd says

“it is a huge honour to be invited to join this board. The Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster Michael Gove and Veterans Minister Jonny Mercer have worked tirelessly to ensure veterans are treated with respect and supported throughout their life after service. My whole focus has always been to ensure members of our Armed Forces, past and present, and their families, are given the attention, support and guidance they deserve. And I will bring my experience, focus and determination to the Veterans Advisory Board alongside a group filled will dynamic, passionate individuals. I cannot wait to get started.”

RFS was...a platform for spouses who understood my struggles and my challenges. It felt like I came to them in pieces, deflated and very defeated and they (RFS) pieced me back together.

The competency amongst the military spouse community is unbelievably good and the fact all our candidates were happy with remote working made this ideal for us as a small business.
