Q

I already have Naval Service experience so what training will I be doing with the Royal Naval Reserves?

A

This very much depends on whether or not you were classed as ‘trained strength’ in the Royal Navy, and which RNR job is assigned to you. You’re not expected to attend New Entry training – you are more likely to undertake your branch training at weekends instead. But you will still be expected to play an active part in your local unit.

Q

I am in full-time education am I liable to be called-out with the Royal Naval Reserves?

A

No. People in fulltime education are not called for mobilised service.

Q

If I find I can no longer make the commitment to the Royal Naval Reserves how much notice must I give?

A

We recognise that personal circumstances can change so if you feel you have to leave the RNR you are required to give a month’s notice, in writing.

Q

If I am mobilised with the Royal Naval Reserves, do I have to go?

A

Occasionally a call-out notice could prove very difficult at work or at home so there is a procedure for you, or your employer, to appeal against mobilisation.

Q

Do I need parental or guardian consent to join the Royal Naval Reserves?

A

Yes, you will require consent if you are under 17-and-a-half years of age.

Q

How long after joining the Royal Naval Reserves could I expect to be called out on mobilised service?

A

If you have no previous military experience you cannot be mobilised until you have reached ‘Trained Strength’. This means you must have completed your initial training and some branch training too. Therefore, you will probably have served at least two years before you are required for active service.  For those that have previous experience, you could be called out almost as soon as you join the RNR.

Q

What kind of job will I be doing in the Royal Naval Reserve?

A

As a New Entrant you will need to get through your initial training before you start training for a specific job.  Near the end of your initial training, you can state your job preferences, but ultimately jobs are assigned according to the current manning requirements. Find out more about roles within the RNR here.Roles-in-RNR

Q

Is there an Equality and Diversity policy for the Royal Naval Reserve?

A

The RNR is part of the wider Naval Service which is fully committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

Q

What level of commitment will I be required to make to the Royal Naval Reserves?

A

Each year you will be expected to complete your annual training commitment of 24 days. This is usually made up of a 12-day continuous training period and a further 12 days of training made up of weekly training evenings and some weekend training.

Q

What happens to my civilian work when I am mobilised with the Royal Naval Reserves?

A

Your job is protected during your mobilised service.
