The biggest team you’ll ever join, the most important work you’ll ever do. Becoming an Army Reserve Officer 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.
Whatever your line of work, we’re looking for the ability to lead a team and be the one they turn to. It takes a sense of purpose and a drive to do great things, if you’ve got the potential, we’ll take your skills and abilities and shape them into something amazing.
When you join the Army Reserve, you’ll have the opportunity to develop personally and professionally. In fact, you’ll enjoy all the benefits that come with being part of the British Army. From world-class training and development to worldwide travel – you’ll grow in ways you never knew you could, encountering people and situations you’d never have the chance to as a civilian.
You’ll also receive:
- Pay for the time you spend with us, starting from around £79 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
- Discounts in high street stores and online
- Adventurous Training, and the chance to play your favourite sports or take up a new one
Find where you belong
An escape from the normal. A life outside the ordinary. It all starts at the prestigious Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, where you’ll tackle unique challenges that push you to perform at your best. More strength, more resilience, more expertise. Here, you’ll find out what it takes to lead.
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 Officer. 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.
