849 Signal Troop – Leeds

849 Signal Troop is part of 64 Signal Squadron, within 37 Signal Regiment and we are located at Carlton Barracks in the heart of Leeds. We are an Army Reserve Royal Signals unit and we provide data and voice communications to the Emergency Services as well as Local and National Government Agencies in times of national emergency, including:

  • Natural Disasters
  • Power Cuts
  • Acts of Terrorism 
  • Strikes

The unit is at the cutting edge of the Army’s Communication Information Systems (CIS), and you will receive full training on all of our hi-tech kit. There are many opportunities to train around the world in 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 has a strong social scene, with many members meeting after training and with regular social events held throughout the year, helping to foster a strong sense of camaraderie and teamwork.

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 Carlton Barracks, Leeds. 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 locations 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!
