The Trust’s commitment to providing employment opportunities for former members of the armed forces has seen it shortlisted for a prestigious national award.

East London NHS Foundation Trust is shortlisted in the Employer of the Year category of the annual British Ex-Forces in Business Awards.

The awards were established in 2017 to promote the achievements of veterans in second careers.  

They shine a light on the veteran talent pool while also increasing visibility of business role models for service leavers, giving them the confidence to pursue their own post-service aspirations.    

The Ex-Forces in Business Awards have led the way in showcasing second-career achievements of more than 1,200 UK veterans and reservists at events that have been attended by thousands of employers and engaged with by millions more online.  

This year's awards programme, which returns to London for the sixth time on June 29th, has attracted more than 1,100 nominations.  

ELFT supports the employment of veterans and is recognised as a Veteran Aware Trust by the Veterans Health Care Alliance (VHCA).
