Armed Forces Day takes place on the last Saturday each June. It’s a chance for all of us to thank, and show support for, the Armed Forces community, including currently serving troops, veterans, cadets and their families. This year’s celebrations start on Monday 21 June: the Armed Forces Day flag will be raised on buildings and famous landmarks around the country with Armed Forces Day itself taking place on Saturday 26 June.
There are many ways for people, communities and organisations across the country to show their support and get involved, so we felt that the least we could do is flag the event and supporting via social media.
We, as a team, appreciate the sacrifices that our forces (Royal Navy, Army and Air Force) and their families make. I come from a services family myself, so it’s a pleasure to be writing this blog and to see families so widely mentioned in preparation for celebrations.
It’s also great to see Reservists having their own contribution mentioned. Reserves Day is being celebrated on Wednesday 23 June. (The Reserve Forces make up around a sixth of the Armed Forces personnel, providing specialist support.)
Whilst we can make no guarantees other than to employ the people we feel will best fit, we feel it right to flag up opportunities.
Our business is essentially a logistics business, so we are always open to ex-forces personnel with a customer focussed attitude to join us either as employees https://www.easystorage.com/jobs-with-easystorage or as franchisees https://www.easystorage.com/franchise.
We believe that our people are what makes us special, and with a TrustPilot score of 4.8 out of 5 at time of writing, it’s clear our customers feel the same.
We are aware of how hard it can be for people leaving the armed forces to settle back into civilian life. We value the teamwork, self-discipline and sense of pride in work that the forces can instil in many people.
The Blue Light Community consists of a of 31 groups of front-line workers who keep us safe including the armed forces. The Blue Light Card provides those in their community with discounts - from large, national retailers to local businesses. (Personalised to each member, a Blue Light Card costs £4.99 for two-years access.)
easyStorage is proud to have joined the companies supporting this community by offering £50 off our already cheap prices for self-storage. (easyStorage charges around half the price of traditional self-storage.)
We hope that anyone reading this will join us in saying thank you to the personnel who make up our Armed Forces. Look out for the hashtags on social media including #Reserves Day and #Armed Forces Day.
