The council has long been a committed supporter of the nation's Armed Forces. The London Regiment (Territorial Army) has had the title Freeman of the Borough since 1992 following its long local association with its predecessor regiments from the early 1900s. The 2nd Royal Tank Regiment (2 RTR) received the same Freedom in 2011.
In 2007 we made a public pledge of support, as an employer, for Britain's armed forces reservists. We also support an annual Armed Forces Day event and the first such event was in Battersea Park in June 2009. In June 2012, we signed an Armed Forces Community Covenant.
Applicants for job vacancies within the council are welcomed from the armed forces community. View our job vacancies.
