Working with illness in the Armed ForcesArticles . Blog
the Armed Forces is becoming a different
environment, and it’s taking inclusion incredibly seriously. If I take myself
for example – cancer four and a half years in – still under treatment. I have not
experienced any dreadful behaviour or any issues as a result of it. The employer,
the Armed Forces, has kept me in a job – has kept me in line for jobs that would
advance my career. They’ve given me work which is
worthwhile and I felt valued by. I think one of the big things from that for me is the whole piece about bringing a whole self to work. Cancer is a part of
my life, I have a life-changing, potentially life limiting illness, but
I’m not the only person. So if I was to share anything it’s a case of “The
Armed Forces will support you when you are in a situation like this.” And I
suppose I am walking proof of that.
