MORE OPTIONS

Don't forget that there are also Army Reserve units looking for people for specialist tasks. Most of these units look for people who already have qualifications or experience in their specialist area, but 167 Catering Support Regiment will train you to become a chef.

BECOMING A RESERVIST

When you join the Army Reserve, in most cases you'll need to pass the same tests as those joining as a full time soldier or officer. If you're rejoining, you may need to follow a different process - your recruiter will be able to give you more information.

HOW TO APPLY

DID YOU KNOW?

As a member of the Army Reserve, you may be asked to go on operations, to serve alongside Regular soldiers.
