Reserve Soldier

Job description

The biggest team you’ll ever join, the most important work you’ll ever do. Becoming an Army Reserve Soldier is more than a hobby. It’s adventure, with purpose. It’s action, with responsibility. It’s a great challenge, with exceptional rewards.

It’s a chance for you to do what really matters, in a way that fits around your current career, making more of what you already know to make a real difference to the world.

Army Reserve soldiers come from all walks of life and work part-time as soldiers for the British Army alongside full-time Regular soldiers. When you join the Army Reserve as a soldier, you'll get involved in everything that the Regular Army does - from combat to peacekeeping and humanitarian work. You'll be given the opportunity to learn trade skills, and can take advantage of the opportunities that Regular soldiers have too - like Adventurous Training.

You’ll also receive:

  • Pay for the time you spend with us, starting from around £51 per day after training (for which you’ll be paid)
  • An annual tax-free ‘bounty’
  • The Army’s Reserve Forces Pension Scheme
  • Opportunities to enhance your professional qualifications
  • Opportunities to travel
  • Adventurous Training, and the chance to play your favourite sports or take up a new one

Be reserved for more

From travelling to new places, at home and abroad, to forging lasting bonds with friends and colleagues – there’s a lot to gain from being an Army Reserve Soldier. Training is flexible and designed to fit around your lifestyle, most roles will ask you for a commitment of 27 days a year, and your weekly training session at your unit will count towards this. However, if you join a national unit, it could be as little as 19 days a year.

What we are looking for

What we look for in our Officer Cadets is leadership potential. A sense of purpose and the drive to do great things. With these qualities in place, we can give you the training you need to take your skills and abilities and shape them into something amazing.
