THE NORTH EAST RESERVES EXPERIENCE

BENTON PARK VIEW, NEWCASTLE UPON TYNE, NE98 1ZZ

THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 22ND, 2016

You are cordially invited to come along to The North East Reserves Experience on Thursday September 22nd 2016.

The North East Reserves Experience will take around two hours to enjoy and will start at different times throughout the day between 9.00am and 3.00pm. However, as you will see from the timeslots, we are asking you to come along 15 minutes ahead of the start in order to register. You’ll also have time at the end of The North East Reserves Experience to talk to some Reservists and ask questions.

So all you need to do is select a timeslot that’s convenient for you. Of course, it would be great if you could enjoy The North East Reserves Experience along with colleagues from your department or organisation, in which case you would obviously all need to sign up to the same timeslot.

Please note that free transport to Benton Park View is available for HMRC and DWP staff based in Washington.

For the 10.45-13.00 session, a coach will depart from the main entrance at Washington at 10am, returning by 2pm.

For the 12.45-15.00 session, a coach will depart from the main entrance at Washington 12pm, returning by 4pm.

After registering on Eventbrite, please ensure you book your space on the transport by emailing forces.reserve@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk.

FAQs

1) Is there an age limit to being a Reservist?

The Reserve Forces are open to applications from a wide age group (see below) and indeed even higher age limits (up to 55) apply to applicants with specific specialist professional qualifications.

The current age limits for new Reservists’ applications are as follows:

  • Royal Naval Reserve: 16-40
  • Army Reserve: 18-49
  • Royal Air Force Reserve: 18-49

2) Are there any other restrictions to becoming a Reservist?

Everyone who joins the Reserve Forces has to meet some basic eligibility criteria. These may differ depending on which Service you want to join and the particular role you want to choose. As well as age, there are other eligibility criteria relating to nationality/residency, fitness/health, education/qualifications and criminal convictions. You will be able to find out more about eligibility at the Reserves Experience.

3) I can’t attend on that particular date. Will the Reserves Experience be run again?

There will be another Reserves Experience event happening in London on 2nd November 2016.

4) I now can’t attend the time slot I selected. Can I amend it?

Yes, you can. This is very simple. Just log into EventBrite and you can cancel the booking for the time slot you are no longer able to attend and then book a new time slot.
