Remembrance Day 2022
Lest we forget
All of us at Hopkins Homes give thanks to those who died defending our freedom.
We are a signatory to the Armed Forces Covenant and a keen supporter of the Armed Forces past and present.
We are eternally grateful.
Hopkins Homes received the Armed Forces Covenant Silver Employer Recognition Award in 2019, which recognises organisations who pledge, demonstrate, and advocate their support for the defence community and the value serving personnel, reservists, veterans, and military families bring to businesses.
We introduced an Assistant Site Manager training scheme, with the first trainees being ex-military personnel. The scheme provides an opportunity to gain hands-on experience at live developments, alongside industry professionals, whilst gaining recognised professional qualifications.
Former Royal Marine Commando Mr Melvyn Gilmour commented: “I did a gas engineers course but wanted something more about working with others. When I heard about the Hopkins Homes course I jumped at it. I am really grateful.”
“What Hopkins Homes is doing is incredible, hopefully other employers will follow their lead.”
The programme is run by Shane Vinyard, our Head of Quality Assurance.
