Length of service for Reserves officer.


I'd like to join the Reserves but can't get any information on how long I'd have to serve (info on website is a bit evasive/misleading).

I've heard something about 5 year blocks? Not sure what that means exactly.

And when/how can you leave if you decide to?

Thanks in advance,

Reserve Officer Initial Contract (ICS1), so far as I'm aware, is initially for 12 years for those joining today. It used to be 5 years.

You can quit by giving 30 day's notice.
