Witchford-based firm, Forces Recruitment Services (FRS), marked the 70th anniversary of D-day this morning (Friday) with a special visit from Ely’s Mayor.

Cllr Lis Every visited the company’s new premises above the RAF Witchford museum to hear the business announce its commitment to the Corporate Covenant pledging ongoing support and service for and advocacy of the skills and qualities of current and past members of HM Forces.

The firm’s managing director, Graham Brown, said: “It was nice to tie in our commitment to the military covenant with the D-day celebrations.

“Now in its 13th year, FRS has helped thousands of candidates into work and the covenant embodies what we have been doing all along but this is an opportunity to demonstrate it not just to our own clients and candidates but to the wider population. “The redundancies of the military community have been well documented in the press recently, including the closure of the barracks at Waterbeach.”

Cllr Every said: “I was delighted to meet with Graham and the team and to learn about the fantastic service they provide for those leaving the Armed Forces.

“This is such a valuable resource and provides excellent opportunities for those who have served our country to find new and meaningful careers when they leave.

“We are so pleased that they have chosen this area as their headquarters.”
