There are three different routes of entry into the Royal Naval Reserve. Explore the jobs and related roles.
This is the area where most civilians with no previous military experience will find a place in the Royal Naval Reserve team. The varied jobs are some of the Royal Navy's main supporting roles and in general, you don't need specific civilian qualifications – just the willingness to learn and commit your time.
The jobs in this area can only be done by those who already have specific civilian skills and qualifications. If you're a nurse, doctor, chaplain or a current or former Merchant Navy officer and you want to expand your knowledge by working in a military environment, you can apply for a job in this area.
The inside knowledge, investment and expertise that comes from past service in the Royal Navy means that as an ex-regular you're uniquely qualified to carry out the jobs in this area.
