Following record entries, we are thrilled to announce that the Heropreneurs Awards’ ‘Employer of the Year’ category has been split into ‘Small Employer of the Year’ and ‘Large Employer of the Year’ thanks to the generosity of JobOppO!
JobOppO offers exclusive support to veterans to help navigate the transition from military life to civilian life. Employment support is essential to the whole military community, whether you are an employee or employer. By partnering with global brands and SME’s, JobOppO work solely with companies that want to recruit ex-serving personnel, recognising how important the additional and unique skills they have accumulated in the forces are to the workplace.
Through their support of the Heropreneurs Awards, we are working together to recognise the contributions of companies who are committed to providing employment opportunities for military veterans and spouses.
Having received a record number of entries this year, we are absolutely thrilled to announce that this year’s ‘Employer of the Year’ award has been split into two categories -
‘Large Employer of the Year’ and ‘Small Employer of the Year’.
This would not have been possible without the generosity of JobOppO, who will now be donating Gold membership to their platform, worth £10,000, to each of our winners.
We think you’ll agree that these are pretty spectacular prizes, and a true reflection of our combined commitment to changing the narrative around veteran employment and championing those organisations who recognise the attributes that veterans bring to their workplace forces.
Garrath Williams, JobOppO’s Director of Veteran Engagement & Development who served for 17 years in the British and Australian Army, tells us:
"JobOppO are proud to be one of the sponsors for this year's Heropreneurs Awards, particularly the Employer of the Year category. There were some fantastic organisations, of all sizes, entered and it was a tough job creating this short-list.
Congratulations to everyone and good luck to the finalists!"
We would like to take the opportunity to thank JobOppO for their extremely generous support of the Heropreneurs Awards, choosing to offer two prizes in order to celebrate organisations that are truly deserving of recognition.
