EXPERIENCE LIFE IN THE RNR

LEAVE THE EVERYDAY BEHIND. SEE WHAT YOU CAN DO.

Serving with the Royal Naval Reserve (RNR) is a unique way of life that attracts people from all backgrounds. For some it’s a chance to develop skills, knowledge and personal qualities that help in their civilian work. For others it’s an opportunity to meet friends, stay fit and travel. Whatever your reason for joining, the RNR will support you with excellent training and benefits.

Life as a reserve

You might have no military experience. You might have specific civilian skills or you may have previously served in the armed forces. Whichever group you fall into, being in the Reserves gives you the unique opportunity to balance the adventure of  life in the Royal Navy with work and home life.

Along with being financially rewarded for your commitment, you’ll have the chance to make the most of your existing skills – and learn a whole host of new ones. You’ll also develop confidence and self-discipline, as well as the leadership and teamwork skills that are directly transferable to your civilian life.
