Army Reserve Officer Careers

Army Reserve Royal Signals Officer

As an Army Reserve Royal Signals Officer you are responsible for leading, managing and motivating highly skilled soldiers.

Being an officer is one of the ultimate management challenges. You need the desire to lead others and take responsibility for them.

Who do we want?

We look for people who have confidence and maturity as well as leadership skills.

There are many opportunities for self-development, including professional leadership training, management courses and promotion through the ranks.

Some of the jobs available to you as an officer with 32 Signal Regiment are:

  • Troop Commander (2nd Lieutenant - Captain)
    As a Troop Commander you will command a troop of around 30 soldiers. You will be responsible for their training, careers and welfare both in barracks and on exercise. You will also command thousands of pounds worth of the latest communications equipment - deciding how best to deploy and utilise the assets available.
  • Military Liaison Officer (2nd Lieutenant - Captain)
    Due to our prominent UK Operations role we often deploy our officers into major incident control centres and operations rooms to act as liaison officers between the emergency services, the Scottish Government and the Armed Forces. A very high profile and challenging job.
  • Squadron Second-in-Command (Captain)
    As the Squadron Second-in-Command (2IC) you are responsible for: the overall career management of all the soldiers in the Squadron, often numbering up to 100; young officer training; giving briefings whilst on exercise and operations; and acting as the Squadron Reconnaissance Officer when deployed in the field - always one step ahead of the rest of the Squadron checking out future communications sites and setting them up ready for the Squadron to move in to. 
  • Squadron Commander (Major)
    As an Army Reserve Royal Signals Major you can command a Squadron of officers and soldiers numbering up to a 100. You are ultimately responsible for all training, discipline, and the effective deployment of the Squadron's communications assets in support of UK Operations and local exercises.
