SaBRE (Supporting Britain’s Reservists and their Employers) - Now Defence Relationship Management

DRM is a single point of contact linking employers with the Ministry of Defence (MOD).

About DRM

We offer advice and support on employing members of the armed forces community, and enable organisations to develop a mutually beneficial working relationship with the MOD. DRM builds on the successful SaBRE (Supporting Britain’s Reservists and their Employers) information campaign and continues defence’s work with reservists, their employers, and those organisations who want to partner with defence.

Find out more about rights and responsibilities for employers and reservists.

Defence is keen to establish open, strategic relationships with employers, tailoring partnering opportunities to mutual needs and business goals.

The ways we offer support include:

  • employment of reservists and support through flexible HR policies
  • employment of regular service personnel at the end of their engagements, in collaboration with the Career Transition Partnership (CTP)
  • employment opportunities for service leavers with more challenging transitions including the wounded, injured and sick
  • employment of spouses/civil partners of service personnel
  • joint development of skills in areas such as engineering, medical, communications and cyber security
  • career opportunities and support for cadet adult instructors
  • tackling disadvantages faced by service personnel in the consumer market
