As part of the Council’s commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant, WCC is hosting an Army Reserve recruitment event on Wednesday 17th April. This will take place in Shire Hall, Warwick between 11.30-2.30pm with presentations in Committee Room 1 at 1pm.
This is open to all WCC staff for them to find out about the opportunities in the Army Reserve locally. WCC’s Economic Development team encourage staff from local businesses to attend as well. There are personal development and financial incentives for being part of the Reserve Forces.
There are 3 Reserve Units attending:
As a Reservist an individual will get paid for the time spent training, and a bonus payment for completing a certain amount of training days each year (usually 27 comprising of evenings, weekends and an annual camp). The pay scale will be based on what a Regular soldier with the same job and rank would get.
The Council encourages staff to join the Reserves as the Council benefits from the skills and opportunities the individual experiences as part of their Reserve commitment.
