Australian Army Reserve Careers and Employment

About us
The Army Reserve is a dynamic, supportive and future focused organisation. Working alongside the full-time Army, we are a fully-trained, part-time defence force comprising of more than 14,000 part-time soldiers and officers across 50 reserve units in Australia.

Our core purpose is to support the Army in defending Australia’s interests, equipped
 – more... with advanced weaponry, vehicles, technology and military tactics. You’ll get involved in rewarding activities such as supporting humanitarian missions, disaster-relief activities, security tasks and combat operations. With a desire to ‘give something back’, you’ll be serving the country you love and benefitting the broader community.

Members of the Army Reserve gain great satisfaction from the rewarding work, travel, teamwork and camaraderie. You’ll also enjoy tax-free pay and allowances, funded employment training and free healthcare, food and accommodation while on exercises and operations.


Your employer will benefit greatly from the management and vocational skills you are taught in the Reserves, and the character building lifestyle you’ll experience. Hundreds of businesses have discovered it pays to have a reservist in your ranks. Your employer will benefit from your service through your development of leadership and management skills, planning and prioritisation, time and resource management as well as self-discipline, resilience, initiative, resourcefulness and a clear focus on teamwork.

Give as little as one night a week, or a few weeks a year and do something for yourself and your community.
