Opportunities in the Army Reserve

Being a Reservist (formerly the Territorial Army), asks more of you than most activities you do in your spare time, but the rewards are greater. As part of a team with people from all walks of life, you’ll develop new skills as you work and train together. The Army pays for the time you put in, and you get the chance to travel and take part in a range of social events.

Being a Reservist is about new challenges

With the chance to take part in military exercises, get much fitter and serve with the Army all over the world, Army Reserve life is all about giving yourself the opportunity to do something different.

Joint Cyber Unit (Reserve)

In May 2013 the Joint Forces Cyber Group stood up within the Joint Forces Command structure to deliver Defence’s cyber capability; its Reserve component is the Joint Cyber Unit (Reserve) (JCU(R)) which was announced by the Secretary of State for Defence on 29 Sep 13. The JCU(R) will provide specialist reservist support to the Joint Cyber Unit (Corsham), the Joint Cyber Unit (Cheltenham), and Information Assurance (IA) units across Defence.

The JCU(R) is now seeking to recruit individuals with exceptional verifiable cyber and/or IA skills from three areas: regular personnel leaving the service; current and former reservists; and individuals with no previous military service. Personnel will be selected based primarily on their existing technical knowledge, skills, experience and aptitude for posts in the JCU(R) sub-units.

For more information, including the types of skills we are looking for and contact details of the unit, please visit the JCU(R) web page.
