Bristol-based Atkins engineer Dibs Bucknell, who also serves as HMS FLYING FOX’s Commanding Officer, said: “Atkins is a Reserve-friendly company, supporting members in many ways, such as an extra one week’s leave for Reserve activity. In return, membership in the UK Reserve and Cadet Forces helps build confidence amongst employees as well as teaching a wide variety of new and useful skill sets, from Civilian Accredited First Aid, to high-level Management training.”
