Heropreneurs Awards 2021 'Small Employer of the Year' Winner

Sponsored by JobOppo, our ‘Small Employer of the Year’ award is new for 2021 and recognises the contributions of businesses that actively seek to employ members of the military community, specifically military veterans, and dependants.



Having received a record number of entries this year, we announced in July that this year’s award has been split into two categories, ‘Large Employer of the Year’ and ‘Small Employer of the Year’.

These awards would not have been possible without the generosity of JobOppO, who will be donating Gold membership to their platform, worth £10,000, to each of our winners.



Garrath Williams, JobOppO’s Director of Veteran Engagement & Development, tells us ‘It’s a privilege to be sponsors of this year's 'Employer of the Year' awards. Due to the number and the quality of entries this year we decided to split and offer two awards, one to the large employer of the year and the second to small employer of the year.

All entries this year have clearly demonstrated a great level of support to the military community, to our veterans, spouses, reservists, cadets and it shows that by welcoming these people into their team they value the benefit they will bring.’



We are delighted to announce that this year’s winner of ‘Small Employer of the Year’ is D3A Defence.


D3A Defence Ltd specialise in the provision of subject matter expertise and support for the development and delivery of training solutions to the military and uniformed services.


On winning the award, CEO Craig Haslam said ‘Firstly, I would like to thank Heropreneurs for being a fantastic support to us and secondly JobOppo for sponsoring this award. This means so much to us at D3A because our biggest strength in the company is our team itself. We always ensure that our end users are the biggest beneficiary of any project we get involved in. So, I would also like to say thank you to those who we deliver the training to.’


Thank you to JobOppo for their extremely generous support and sponsorship of these Awards. We also extend our thanks to our mentors and panel of judges for their time and support.
