“BFRS have been brilliant to work with and have gone above and beyond my expectations by far.Having got in touch with me to offer their support and assistance with an upcoming transatlantic row with ateam of serving and veteran servicemen they have also offered to assist one of the team in his transition to civilian life alongside our race preparations. Pro-active, energetic and efficient, no question goes unanswered for long and they seem genuinely enthusiastic about the service they provide. All four of us looking forward to attending some of the careers events this year to meet more of the team and some of the employers and companies they work with across the country.”
