Your Role

If you’re looking to make a difference with your existing trade qualifications, experience adventure and give back to the community, then the Army Reserve could be for you. You’ll have the opportunity to break out of your everyday role, while still using your skills in exciting new environments.

The Army Reserve has a range of part-time trade roles available offering a flexible time commitment. Whether you’re a qualified Carpenter, Plumber or Electrician, you will use your existing skillset to aid the efforts of the Army Reserve, all while gaining new skills that will help you progress in your civilian career.

Trade roles are utilised to provide electricity, food, shelter and water to troops while on military exercises and on base. These jobs are crucial in providing the core infrastructure for the broader Army Reserve to assist the community.

It’s a distinctive opportunity to make life-long friendships, work in unique military environments and earn tax-free pay. See how this flexible, part-time role as a tradesperson can work around your current lifestyle.

Get Paid

The pay you receive in the Army Reserve goes straight into your pocket with no deductions for tax, and it increases as you gain seniority and experience.

On completion of your initial military and employment training, you could earn a package between $182 - $192 /day tax-free depending on your chosen role.

Additional amounts are paid for time spent on exercises and deployments.

Life in the Army Reserve:

Thousands of men and women enjoy part-time roles with the Army Reserve, operating alongside full-time Army personnel. The only difference is that your commitment is flexible.

Initial training length will vary based on your chosen role, after which you will normally be expected to serve between 20 and 70 days per year. This could involve one night a week, one weekend a month or a few weeks a year.

We do our best to make sure this fits in with your work and family commitments; and deployments are voluntary so if you choose to stay local, there are plenty of ways to make a difference closer to home. And with no minimum period of service, you can leave the Army Reserve whenever you like.
