Reservist insight for Carwood key staff

Ex-serviceman and current Reservist John Reynolds took time out of a busy schedule to give Carwood managers and key staff an insight into what it means to be a reservist for the UK Forces. The Reservist organisation is a significant element of the UK’s Defence capability, for example the Army Reserve has two clearly defined roles. Firstly, it provides highly trained soldiers who can work alongside the Regulars on missions in the UK and overseas. Secondly, it gives people who have specialist skills, like medics and engineers, a range of exciting opportunities to apply them in new situations. Carwood has a special policy related to support of reservist activity through work release, additional leave and leave of absence for call up in times of need. Right now John and many other fellow reservists are on duty in support of the COVID-19 emergency response actions.
