Rachel Reeves MP

Rachel Reeves will be attending this year’s Tec 66 at Sussex Coast College on 27th October 2014

Since becoming an MP, Rachel was elected to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills Select Committee and was appointed Shadow Pensions Minister in October 2010.

Prospective parliamentary labour candidate Sarah Owen invited Rachel specifically because of how impressed she was with Tec 66 last year and how it showcases the high technology companies we have in the local area. Sarah, as a parliamentary candidate, is pushing for a greater focus on high-tech jobs in the area.

She wants Hastings to have more jobs where career progression is possible without having to move away to get promoted. Not just jobs for jobs sake, but high-quality, well-paid careers.
