The internationally renowned Royal Dornoch Golf Club has signed up to a scheme recognising it as an Armed Forces-friendly organisation.
The club has been given a bronze award under the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme for companies that demonstrate or pledge support to the Armed Forces community.
Under the scheme, employers must also align their values to the Armed Forces Covenant which includes supporting the employment of service leavers and their spouses and partners, as well as helping employees who are members of reserve forces.
The club’s General Manager Neil Hampton said: “We are delighted to have signed up to this scheme to show our continued commitment to help all areas of the community, and especially those who look after us.
“This reinforces our pro-active attitude towards recruitment of service people and veterans, many of whom are highly skilled with a great work ethic which fits in well with who we are.”
Roy McLellan, Regional Employer Engagement Director with Highland Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association, said: “I am delighted that Royal Dornoch Golf Club has formally pledged its commitment to the Armed Forces community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.
“By demonstrating its support, the club is helping to provide employment and opportunity for servicemen and women, regular, retired and reserve in the Sutherland community.”
