Equality Impact Assessments were completed prior to the introduction of the Operational MGS Employment Contract (OMEC) and pay rates relate to existing staff’s terms to ensure promotion remains a viable and attractive option for those wishing to further their career within the MOD.

A recent recruitment campaign on OMEC terms and conditions received 20 applications, including those seeking promotion, indicating the new contract does not discourage those seeking promotion opportunities.
