CA 7 SIMPLE STEPS FOR WINTER PREP


CHARTERED MANAGEMENT INSTITUTE SIGNS THE ARMED FORCES COVENANT

Service Families Benefit from CMI Membership

The Chartered Management Institute has pledged to support Service spouses and partners in gaining the leadership qualifications to help them further their career.

Ensuring that Service spouses and partners are not disadvantaged in finding and staying in employment due to service life is a key part of the Armed Force Covenant, which states that: The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly. The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) has sought to uphold this promise by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. In their pledges, the CMI support Service spouses and civil partners through their MOD Family Membership Scheme, which provides access to Leadership, Mentoring and Coaching qualifications, helping Service spouses to gain the key skills and professional recognition which can help Service family members to find employment. The Scheme is also available free to children of Service personnel (aged 16-18) and allows them to become a Campus CMI Affiliate with access to all the benefits of online resources, including study support.

CMI’s pledge offers a discount on their qualifications and membership for family members of Service personnel who are CMI members, and a commitment to support Service spouses or Reservists who they employ with flexible working arrangements, where possible. Chief of Defence People, Lieutenant General Richard Nugee is a CMI companion and participated in the signing of the Covenant at an event on 14 November. He said:
“The families of our Service personnel are an important part of the Covenant. We value and are grateful to them – the unsung heroes who support our Armed Forces. Knowing that the nation, and organisations like the Chartered Management Institute recognises this is extremely important and fundamental in making the Armed Forces Covenant work.”

Ann Francke, Chief Executive of the Chartered Management Institute said:
“We’re proud to sign the Armed Forces Covenant, and helping families of the heroic men and women who serve our country get the support they need to develop their careers. Thousands of members of the Armed Forces who’ve gained CMI-accredited qualifications have benefited from improved performance in their roles, as well as from building confidence and gaining qualifications to help them resettle into civilian life at the end of their military career. Now, their families also have the chance to develop their own skills and qualifications.”

Full details on what membership can offer military families can be found on the CMI website at http://www.managers.org.uk/mod-membership.

GEORGIAN THEATRE JOEL DOMMETT SHOW

Theatre date for ‘jungle’ star

Joel Dommett who is currently battling it out for supremacy in the popular TV reality show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! will be appearing at Richmond’s Georgian Theatre Royal next year.

The comedian is one of the remaining contestants in the sixteenth series of the ITV show, watched nightly by more than 10 million viewers.

Dommett will be bringing his solo show Joel Dommett: LIVE to The Georgian Theatre Royal on Saturday 20 May, which is the only venue in the North East for the celebrity’s 2017 tour.

“We are delighted to be hosting this event at our historic theatre,” said Theatre Chief Executive Clare Allen. “Dommett is one of the UK’s most energetic and exciting young comedians and, of course, he has become a household name in recent weeks with his impressive and engaging performance in the jungle.

Joel came onto the comedy scene in 2007 and has never looked back. After receiving great critical acclaim for his Edinburgh Fringe shows and being crowned five-time winner of the Comedy Café Competition, he has gone on to appear in numerous television shows including; Impractical Jokers (BBC3), Reality Bites (ITV2), Russell Howard's Good News (BBC), Drunk History (Comedy Central), Bring The Noise (Sky1s) and has performed in acting roles for Popatron (BBC2) and Skins (E4).

ON-CALL FIREFIGHTERS

On-call Firefighters

  
Do you live or work within five minutes of a fire station? If so, then being a retained firefighter might be a possibility!

Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service relies on retained (or on-call) firefighters to maintain its emergency response.

On-call firefighters make themselves available to respond to a pager when a 999 call is made, and cover is needed at all times. Contracted hours can vary, but personnel usually make themselves available for between 48 and 120 hours per week. Between them, each fire station team will provide cover for weekdays, evenings, nights and weekends.

On-call firefighters receive the same training and development as wholetime colleagues, and can be called to all manner of emergencies, including fires, road traffic collisions, animal rescues and flooding.

The pay does vary, depending on how much cover is given, but it is fantastically rewarding to be a part of your community and in a position to help people.

In order to be on-call, you need to be able to respond to the fire station in around five minutes once your pager goes off. This can be from home or work, and employers can benefit from a firefighter’s training – such as first aid, manual handling, a greater understanding of health & safety in the workplace, and enhanced team spirit.
