Reserve Soldier (Entry Level)
£42.29 a day
Make every hour count.
As a part-time, entry-level Reserve Soldier in the British Army, you’ll:
· Get involved in everything the Regular Army does, from combat to humanitarian work
· Get paid to spend your spare time learning transferrable skills
· Experience adventures you never thought possible
· Only work the hours that suit you and your schedule
· Make friends that will last a lifetime
· Provide support to the Regular Army when needed
To qualify, you must be between 16 years 6 months and 35 years 6 months and pass a basic fitness test.
Set yourself up for life.
During your initial training, you will receive one day of paid holiday for every 10 days you serve and earn £42.29 per day. As you progress through our ranks, this will rise to £83.01 per day for a Corporal, and £93.40 per day when you become a Sergeant. If you meet your minimum training commitment (usually 27 days a year) and pass your annual Military Training Tests, you’ll also get a tax-free bonus payment on top of your pay.
From your very first day with us, you’ll be gaining transferrable skills, including military and civilian qualifications that could set you up for life. All the entry-level training you’ll need can be completed in modules or all in one go, so you can choose the route that suits you.
The Army will always respect that for a Reservist, family life and civilian jobs should always come first. This means that you’ll never be put under pressure to spend all your spare time with the Army. You can be as flexible as you like, knowing that you’ll be rewarded for the time that you give.
You’ll even get to take part in Army sports, like skiing, orienteering, and target shooting, and travel the world on adventurous training exercises.
