Rutland Council is proud to support the local Armed Forces community and have pledged our ongoing support for the services by signing the official Armed Forces Community Covenant.

In recent years, we’ve enjoyed working closely with the 2 Battalion Royal Anglian Regiment and 7 Regiment The Royal Logistic Corps at Kendrew Barracks in Cottesmore, as well as 16 Regiment Royal Artillery, 1 Military Working Dogs and 2 Medical Regiment at St George’s Barracks, North Luffenham.

We have now developed an Armed Forces Officer role that will focus on strengthening the delivery of the Armed Forces Covenant across Rutland, South Kesteven and Harborough.

This is a unique role for someone who has a significant understanding of the needs of the Armed Forces Community and the organisations that are operating locally to support them.   You will need to demonstrate strong communication skills and be able to work both independently and collaboratively with partners to deliver the project.
