Event Details




You are cordially invited to come along to The Reserves Experience on Thursday October 29th, 2015.

The Reserves Experience will take around an hour and a half to enjoy and will start at different times throughout the day between 9.00am and 4.30pm. 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. In addition, we have allowed you some time at the end of The Reserves Experience to talk to some Reservists and ask questions. So the timeslots run for two hours in total.

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 Reserves Experience along with colleagues from your department or organisation, led by one of your senior representatives – in which case you would obviously all need to sign up to the same timeslot.

We very much look forward to seeing you there.




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 other Reserves Experience events happening across the country during the course of 2015. These are planned for 29th September in Cardiff, 15th October in Manchester and 27th October in Edinburgh. In addition there will be Reservists at the upcoming Civil Service Live events in Newcastle, Manchester, Bristol, Edinburgh and London. So there are plenty of opportunities to find out more about Reserve service even if you can’t make the event in Cardiff.


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.


5) Do I need to print off my EventBrite confirmation?

Yes, it would be very helpful if once you’ve registered on EventBrite, you print off your  confirmation email and bring it with you to the event as this will speed up registration on the day. 


6) Do I need to bring photo ID?

No, you will not have to bring photo ID to this event.
