LIFE AS A RESERVIST

From the time you start your training, your time in the Army Reserve will fit around you. If you're at a local unit, regular training nights will allow you to work on your skills and fitness.

You'll also go on exercise to develop your Army field skills at weekends and an annual training camp (2 weeks).

You can also take part in Adventurous Training and sports activities.

A ROLE THAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU

If you've already got specialist skills - for example you're a doctor, dentist or chaplain, you can join a specialist national unit. These units meet less often (just ask for 19 days a year), and are a good chance for you to use your skills in new and often challenging environments.

If you're looking to join the Army as an officer, but don't have any specialist qualifications, you'll be warmly welcomed by your local unit. Most Reservists serve locally, and you'll be trained to the high standards needed by the Army.
