Our Assessment

77th Brigade run a series of briefing and assessments days aimed at the Regular Army, Army Reserve and civilians applicants. 

The assessments allow us to tell potential applicants what we are looking for and select suitable individuals who may have skills the Brigade needs to operate in the future.

How we select

We do this using the following approach:

  • Briefings on the background and future role of the Brigade
  • Can the individual cope with uncertainty?
  • Emotional intelligence
  • Problem solving
  • Study of individuals approach to problems with unorthodox solutions
  • Ability to deal with complex situations and scenarios
  • Opportunity to offer a personalised view of what they can bring to the Brigade
  • Interviews

Before attendance at an assessment you will be sent a briefing pack which will include pre-work to complete.

After Assessment

Following completion of the assessment we will notify you of the your result.

This does not automatically select you for a place in the Brigade. This is done via the normal applications to join the Army or if already serving via the selection board processes.

Regular soldiers if successful on the assessment can apply for assignment to the Brigade via RCMO and APC routes.
