896 Signal Troop - Coventry

896 Signal Troop is part of 48 Signal Squadron, within 37 Signal Regiment and we are located on Swillington Road, just off the Radford Road in Coventry. We are an Army Reserve Royal Signals unit and our primary role is providing communications between the Military and the Emergency Services and Local/National Government Agencies for UK Operations such as:

  • Natural Disasters such as flooding
  • Acts of Terrorism 
  • Strikes
  • Pre-planned events such as the Commonwealth Games and the NATO summit

37 Signal Regiment has the latest Military Communication Information Systems (CIS) equipment, and you will receive full training on our hi-tech kit as well as developing your basic soldiering skills. There are many opportunities to deploy around the world to places such as Cyprus, Italy, France and Gibraltar. You will also get leadership training and experience, driver training (including basic licence acquisition) and gain qualifications which are recognised in the civilian work place.

Like their Regular counterparts, Army Reserve Solders also get paid to undertake adventurous training activities such as skiing and sailing as well as competing in various sports. The Troop also has a lively social calendar with a variety of activities and events throughout the year.

We are always looking for keen, committed people who relish a challenging and rewarding environment to join us as both as Officers and as Soldiers. You don’t need any previous Signals or IT knowledge and we can provide full advice about how to build your fitness levels to those required by the Army. More information on the criteria for joining can be found on the “Joining the Army” part of the Army website.

We train on Tuesday evenings between 1930-2130 at the Westfield House Army Reserve Centre in Coventry. We also train on 1-2 weekends per month and your attendance can be flexible according to your civilian commitments. We deploy on a two week training exercise as a whole Regiment once a year and previous destinations have included Germany, France and various locations in the UK. You will be paid the same daily rate as your Regular counterparts for all the training that you attend.

So if you are looking for something more out of life, want transferrable skills for your civilian employment, or want to be part of a strong, friendly team then contact our Recruiting Team today or drop in on a Tuesday evening!
