Regional Employers’ Organisations

We are part of the National Association of Regional Employers (NARE) which includes members and officers from each of the English regions, Northern Ireland and Wales.  This provides a strong national voice to influence negotiations on pay, terms and conditions.  It is also a useful platform for sharing information and collaborating with other regions.
