Army Reserve Officer

You’re made for more.

Get paid to spend your spare time learning transferrable skills and experiencing adventures you never thought possible. As a Reserve Officer, you’ll get involved in everything that the Regular Army does – from combat to peacekeeping and humanitarian work – but you’ll only work the hours that suit you and your schedule. 

What makes an officer?
You'll be... A born leader. A problem solver. Curious.

On the days that you serve, you’ll learn how to command soldiers in your Army Reserve unit, plan and deliver training for your team, and provide support to the Regular Army when needed.

Reach your full potential. 

Once you’ve completed your training, you’ll be a Second Lieutenant, earning £87.10 per day. As you progress through our ranks, this will rise to £111.62 per day for a Captain, and £140.60 per day when you become a Major. If you meet your minimum training commitment (usually 19 or 27 days) and pass your Military Training Tests (once a year), you’ll also get a tax-free bonus payment on top of your pay.

You don’t need any previous experience to become a Reserve Officer. Through world-class training at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst, you’ll develop all the transferrable leadership skills and qualifications you need to motivate and support your team. This entry-level training can be completed in modules or all in one go, so you can choose the route that best 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. And you’ll also earn one day of paid holiday for every 10 days you serve.

You’ll even get to take part in Army sports, like skiing, orienteering, and target shooting, and travel the world on adventurous training exercises.
