The Army Reserve.
The Army Reserve offers part-time, paid roles with a commitment that sees most soldiers give us around 1 night/week (Wednesday), 1 weekend/month (usually the 3rd) and a 2-week block/year (it’s important to say – no one event is compulsory, so it fits around shifts, holidays and life in general! As well as their basic pay, reservists are rewarded for meeting their basic commitment of 27 days total/year with a bonus (tax-free) that rises to £2100 by their 5th Year of Service! Soldier entrants must be British, <43 years and will be subject to medical screening.
Those joining would expect to:
– Challenge Themselves in their spare time, with peers from across the local area – Solicitors, Tree Surgeons, Students & Electricians all working together!
– Travel the world – the last 18 months has seen our soldiers in Kenya, the USA, Estonia & Germany.
– Gain Skills from leadership and management to skiing! Everyone takes on a varied reservist career that follows their passions, and can take these skills back to work and life.
– Do Something Different – whatever their role in civilian life, the Army Reserve can put them in a completely different headspace and give them something their day-to-day life never could!
Anyone keen to come can express their interest with a short questionnaire by clicking here.
I should mention that any serving members of the Armed Forces will be eligible to receive £500/recruit (no limit on numbers) who enters Phase 1 training as a result! To take advantage, they’d also need to refer the person on the Recruit Bounty Scheme Website. This takes less than 5 minutes.
