The Royal Navy is one of the world’s most versatile fighting forces. Above and below the waves, on land and in the air, we represent and defend the UK’s interests at home and abroad. However, we deliver more than just military power; we help police the world’s oceans, enforcing trade sanctions and preventing drug trafficking. We provide humanitarian relief in places of crisis worldwide and conduct world-leading scientific research of the oceans. We achieve all this because we work as a team of dedicated professionals. You can be part of that team.
We’re looking for men and women from all backgrounds and various levels of education, on a full-time and reserve basis, for positions such as engineers and submariners, nurses, logisticians and in the Royal Marines and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. We are committed to ensuring everyone has equal opportunities for employment, training and advancement based solely on their merits and ability. By valuing diversity, individual skills and talents, we acknowledge our people are the most important factor in delivering operational effectiveness.
The Royal Naval Reserve is a part-time force of civilian volunteers, who provide the Royal Navy with additional trained people it needs at times of tension, humanitarian crises, or conflict. As a reservist, you’ll have to meet the same fitness and academic requirements, wear the same uniform, do much of the same training and, when needed, be deployed in the same places and situations as the regulars. Plus, you’ll be paid for the training and active service that you do.
As a reservist you’ll serve part time, which means you’ll generally be expected to fulfil a commitment of 24 paid days a year.
