How to apply

We have plenty to offer including various operational deployments as part of The Task Group. Regular Officers and Soldiers must simply submit their Posting Preference Proforma to the Army Personnel Centre (APC) Glasgow through their normal Chain of Command. Applicants will be boarded by the APC prior to issuing an Assignment Order.

Current Reservists

Your employment is based on your current skills and knowledge. Please send in your CV and the completed application form. If you pass the CV sift we will call you forward for an assessment day. This includes Regular Officers and Soldiers planning to leave full time service and become a Reservist.


Thank you for your interest in 77th Brigade. Unfortunately the Brigade is not in a position to assess new civilian candidates until September 2019 – however we are accepting CVs from interested candidates which we will process in due course. This is due to a number of factors including a reorganisation within the Brigade, an assessment of the skill sets required and the processing of existing candidates.

If you aspire to join the Brigade, send us your CV and an application form, which will enter our sift selection process. When we begin assessing civilian candidates again we will invite you to an assessment day if you pass the sift selection.  We would also encourage you to contact the National Recruiting Centre to begin your recruitment process here.

If you remain interested in joining the Brigade; any changes or updates to the current situation will be published on this page.

Our Assessment

Regular Officers and Soldiers must simply submit their Posting Preference Proforma to the Army Personnel Centre (APC) Glasgow through their normal Chain of Command. Applicants will be boarded by the APC prior to issuing an Assignment Order.

For current Reservists and Civilians we run a series of briefing and assessments days. 

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

For current Reservists and civilian applicants we use 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 for current Reservists and civilians 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.

Reservists may be offered roles in the Brigade on an E2 assignment away their from parent unit.

Civilians will either be encouraged to apply to join the Army as a Reservist or Specialist Reservist. Specialist Reservists are restricted to employment only in 77th Brigade and not the wider Army.

For Regular Officers and Soldiers this section is no longer relevant please apply via RCMO and APC routes.
