In recognition of our commitment to supporting the Armed Forces, Quadratek was invited to attend the South East Employer Engagement Conference hosted by 11th Infantry Brigade at GOLD Employer Recognition Scheme partner QinetiQ’s Cody Technology Park on Wednesday 5th February.
It was an invaluable day where we understood more about how Defence is engaging with employers, the latest updates on best practice and advocacy, as well as hearing about great opportunities from a number of Employer Engagement Partners.
Talks were led by Major Andy Knight, Lieutenant Colonel (Retd) Graeme MacPherson, Colonel Patrick Crowley, Dr Arnold, Kate Lole, serving Reservists & members of the Cadet Forces, and covered the following topics:
- Engagement events
- Accessing service leaver talent by supporting leavers transitioning into civilian life
- Supporting reservists by unearthing and utilising their transferable skills and disciplines
- The amazing work carried out by the Cadet Forces
The day was a great networking opportunity with like-minded organisations who, like Quadratek, recognise the amazing benefits that engaging with Defence can bring to their business, and we look forward to continuing to support this great initiative.
