Reserves Day

Reserves Day logo

Today is Reserves Day and we are celebrating the amazing reservists we have working for EEAST.

Reservists give up their spare time to serve in the Reserve Forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career to ensure that, should their country require them, they would be ready to serve.

We have a case study from Jason Buxton, paramedic and acting LOM who tells us about his other role as a Corporal in the Army Reserves and why it’s important that your employer really understands what the role entails. Read more about his story as a reservist here. 

Here are a few facts about our Reservists at EEAST -
