When the time comes for you to leave the Regular Army, life on the civilian job market can come as a bit of a shock to the system. Finding a new job and a place to stay all at once might seem a bit daunting. But help is at hand in the form of the Army’s Resettlement Package, to help you manage the return to civilian life.
Army Reserve opportunitiesIf, having left the Regular Army, you miss the camaraderie, excitement and variety of your old Army life, why not give the Reservists a go? You’ll get many of the benefits of Army life and combine them with your new civilian life and career. If you join the Army Reserve within 3 years of leaving the Regulars, you will not deploy on operations for up to 3 years, unless you volunteer. You will also have a reduced requirement to conduct certain basic military tests and you will only need to do 19, instead of 27 days training to qualify for the maximum tax-free bounty.
