The City of Wolverhampton Council actively supports the Armed Forces community in Wolverhampton and this is reflected in the MOD Employer Recognition Gold Award which we currently hold.

We have put a series of measures in place to support the armed forces community when applying for jobs or retaining and progressing their employment within the Council.

Our one stop employment hub, Workbox, hosts vacancies from military and civilian organisations associated with the Armed Forces Covenant. Our award-winning Wolves at Work Team who support people into employment, has a designated armed forces point of contact. The Council provides work experience to veterans, and we have a guaranteed interview scheme in place for veterans. We promote the use of apprenticeships where appropriate to enable veterans to learn a new trade or career.

We allow up to 24 days additional paid leave for reservists and adult cadet volunteers and we have flexible leave arrangements in place for military partners and spouses.
