Reserve Forces and Cadets Association
for North of England

Our Regional Employer Engagement Director, Darren Rhodes, stepped up and set an example to all employers of Reservists by deploying to Cyprus on Ex Lion Star 9 with his Army Reserve Unit, 102 Force Support Battalion REME. 

During the 2 week Annual Continuous Training period he conducted military range and special-to-arm activities to support the resident Regular units on the island.

As an employer, the North of England RFCA has authorised Darren 10 days' Special Paid Leave to support his Army Reserve commitments, fully understanding that the value of the training and experience he received will have continued transferable benefits to our organisation.
