FTRS Job Opportunities
If you are serving in the Army Reserve, or are a Regular Reserve, and are actively seeking employment you should check this site for new Full Time Reserve Service (FTRS) posts each week. Personnel may only apply for a maximum of two posts at any one time.
Withdrawal of Helpdesk Facility
Due to reorganisation of the FTRS section caused by volume of work the helpdesk facility has regrettably been withdrawn. Calls to telephone extension 3116 will result in a number unobtainable message. Requests for jobs specs should be sent by email to: APC-CMOps-FTRSApplications-Group@mod.uk
The FTRS Recruitment Cell will not be accepting telephone calls after 12.00hrs each day.
The APC's FTRS section is closed on Wednesday 12 November 2014 but will return to normal working the following day. Our apologies for any inconvenience.
The rules at 2011DIN01-024, Annex A, Appdx 3, para 9.a. regarding Single Living Accommodation (SLA) contained within the FTRS DIN were clarified in Jul 12. A new DIN 2012DIN01-216 applies from 01 Nov 12 and should be read by all applicants. From 01 Nov 12 there is no entitlement, at their duty station, to Service Accommodation for FTRS (HC) or (LC), however, personnel who are granted permission to live in surplus SLA will be charged non-entitled rates which can be found in 2012DIN08-005.
The impact of SDSR and the associated restructuring/reductions throughout Defence will have an impact on the final availability of advertised FTRS posts. Where currently serving FTRS personnel have been formally notified that their post is to be disestablished prior to the end date of their existing commitments, they will be given priority for advertised FTRS posts.
This may result in FTRS advertised posts being removed from open competition. All FTRS applicants are reminded not to jeopardise existing employment until a firm FTRS commitment has been issued by FTRS Section.
Applicants should note that a number of NRPS posts have been redesignated as FTRS (HC) and can now be viewed as such under Terms and Conditions of Service. Only British Citizens who are members of the Army Reserve and Regular Reserve who have a Reserve liability are eligible to undertake an FTRS Commitment. There is no fee to be paid when applying for a FTRS position.
If you apply for a post that is above your current substantive rank, we will normally provisionally sift you out of consideration unless there are no other suitably qualified applicants in the stated required rank. We will continue to hold your details and may submit them to the employer(s) where those applicants who meet the minimum rank requirements are declared unsuitable by the selection authority.
With effect from 01 Apr 09 all applications for FTRS must be submitted via the Application Form available on this site. Previous versions must not be used and may be returned without action.
All Applications must include a RAOL Post Reference Number. Without this information the Application will be returned.
