As part of our corporate responsibility, Mavin is an armed forces-friendly organisation and have achieved the Bronze Award in the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme.
We recognise the courage and commitment of the people serving our nation in the Armed Forces. That encompasses serving the armed forces, veterans, their families and the bereaved. In support of this commitment, we are proud members of the Armed Forces Covenant. You can download our signed pledge here.
The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise by the nation that those who are actively serving in the forces, veterans and their families are treated fairly. It aims to remove some of the disadvantages of serving and opens up the relationship between the forces and the civilian community.
This means that once a company has signed the Armed Forces Covenant it is a pledge to offer support and guidance to forces personnel.
We are also on the CTP (Career Transition Partnership) website actively looking to employ ex-forces personnel.
The Living Wage is a voluntary higher rate of base pay. It provides a benchmark for responsible employers who choose to pay their employees a rate that meets the basic cost of living in the UK and London. The government’s minimum wage rate is separate from the Living Wage rate calculated by the Living Wage Foundation.
Mavin’s corporate responsibility is to provide the environment for staff in all roles to be creative and empowered to deliver. We aspire to attract and foster the very best employees who take pride in the company and have a passion for its development.
Mavin are an approved signatory of the Prompt Payment Code.
The Prompt Payment Code (PPC) is a voluntary code of practice for businesses, administered by the Office of the Small Business Commissioner (SBC) on behalf of BEIS. It was established in December 2008 and sets standards for payment practices between organisations of any size and their suppliers. Signatories undertake to:
1) pay suppliers on time, within agreed terms;
2) give clear guidance to suppliers on terms, dispute resolution and prompt notification of late payment;
3) support good practice throughout their supply chain by encouraging adoption of the Code.
The Code has subsequently been strengthened and requires signatories to undertake to pay 95% of invoices within a maximum of 60 days, work towards adopting 30 days as the norm and avoid any practices that adversely affect the supply chain.
