Reserve Careers

If you are looking for a new challenge, a second career, excitement, comraderie and adventure, then look for an RLC Reserve unit near you.

There are RLC Reserve units located in every region of the UK. Twinned with Regular Regiments, reservists are soldiers first and must commit to a minimum of 19 days a year. In return The RLC’s reservists benefit from top class specialist training; many in transferable skills, gaining civilian and military qualifications in a wide variety of RLC trades. As a member of the Army Reserve, you may be asked to go on operations, to serve alongside Regular soldiers and there is also a Full Time Reservist Scheme.

Reservist soldiers and officers, are paid a day rate, which is in line with Regular Army pay. You can also earn a ‘bounty’ which is a tax free sum and there are financial packages available for some people looking to join the Army Reserve.
