MEET THE ARMY RESERVE

Are you interested in more than your 9-5 Where you can get Adventure. Qualifications. Additional pay. Flexibility?
Come to our Army Reserves event, where you can meet and talk to serving Reservists, take on the climbing wall and batack, see our kit displays & find out how you can be reserved for more.

As part of the Army Reserve, you’ll get involved in all the activities that the Regular Army does – the difference is that Reservists are not full-time soldiers and can continue their civilian career whilst training in your spare time. From peacekeeping and humanitarian work to sports and Adventurous Training, you’ll experience all the variety of a Regular Army role with extra flexibility.
As a Reservist, you’ll be paid for all the time you serve. That means, whether you’re doing Basic Training, rock climbing, skiing or learning a new trade skill, you’ll be earning money. And on top of that, you’ll have the chance to develop more specialist skills and even gain qualifications that will contribute to your development in the civilian world.

Flexibility is at the core of the Army Reserve – all Reservists have a day job. Local Reservist units usually meet weekly for training, but the amount of time you commit is up to you and can be as little as 19 days a year. You can arrange sessions to fit around your commitments; the Army always respects that for Reservists, family life and civilian jobs should come first.

WHAT MAKES A: RESERVIST

Army Reservists serve in the Army in their spare time. They can choose to train in the evenings and at the weekend, combining Army life and their day to day life - and of course they're paid for their time.

WHAT IS THE ARMY RESERVE?

The Army Reserve is the British Army's reserve force - and used to be known as the Territorial Army or TA. When you join the Army Reserve, 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 be paid for the time you serve.

The difference is that Reservists are not full-time soldiers. Many Reservists have a day job.

WHY JOIN THE ARMY?

 A career that guarantees excitement, variety and opportunities you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll learn the skills you need to serve your country and make your friends and family proud. The Royal Welsh, Welsh Guards and Queen's Dragoon Guards are combat units.

All three of these units are in the thick of the action when the time comes and are proud to represent Wales and do the country proud.

You’ll learn everything you’ll need in conflict situations and everything else the Army does, from driving armoured vehicles to helping with natural disasters.
