It’s hard to believe it has been nearly a year since bushfires swept across Australia, devastating towns and communities.
Volunteers around the country are, once again, preparing for another tough summer. Our purpose-led culture and having a footprint across the country leads to many of our people wanting to volunteer their time in their community, outside of work.
We support our people by offering defense force reservists and volunteer firefighters unlimited paid leave. This means when they’re called upon, job and financial security is one less thing to worry about.
“We care deeply about our people and the causes that matter to them, helping them to support their community when they need it most,” said Lizzy Geremia, Chief Communications Officer.
“It’s inspiring to see our people drop everything to help, their bravery, and commitment is truly humbling.”
One of those people is one of Reece’s Assistant Manager’s, Ben, who gave his time to fight fires at the beginning of 2020, watch this video, to hear his story.
