Pearson Engineering had the pleasure of hosting the North of England Reserve Forces’ and Cadets’ Association for their Armed Forces Forum this month.

The event, hosted by Business Development Manager, Nick Weller, saw seventeen local companies attend, with the purpose being to facilitate dialogue between the region’s supportive employers and the Ministry of Defence in relation to Defence Engagement. The attendees shared upcoming events and best practices, with the visit concluding with a tour of Pearson Engineering’s facilities.

Darren Rhodes, Regional Employer Engagement Director for the Ministry of Defence, said:

“A fantastic North of England Armed Forces Business Forum meeting on Wednesday 10th April. Our hosts, Pearson Engineering Ltd and site visit afterwards made a real change from the run of the mill boardrooms.”

The next forum will take place on 24th April at DTN Academy Ltd.
