Local Employers recognised at Employer Engagement Dinner in Suffolk

On Wednesday 30th April, local employers were invited to attend a dinner which recognised and awarded their support of SaBRE.

Held at Trinity Park, Ipswich, the evening was a chance for Reservists to give guests an insight into the key roles and responsibilities of working for the Army Reserve.

SaBRE works with employers to explain the benefits, obligations and rights of employing a Reservist and also promotes the transferable skills they receive through their military training that can be brought back into the workplace.
