On 10th February 2016, the FANYs held an Employers’ Evening which was an opportunity to thank employers for their support and to show them some of the roles and activities in which FANYs have participated. Employers from the local area were also invited.
The Hon Col, Lt Gen Sir James Everard, Commander Field Army and the Commanding Officer gave speeches of welcome and two members talked about the impact joining the FANYs had had on their own lives and careers.
Joanne Mercer, the Head of Organisational Management at Vinci Construction and a FANY employer said “FANY Volunteers are exceptionally committed individuals, their specialist training enables them to develop core skills such as teamwork, leadership and the ability to work under the utmost pressure. All valuable qualities that we as an employer respect.“
Thanks go to the Greater London RFCA Defence Relationship Management team for their support of the evening.
