The role of army reservists

This study looks at how reservists cope with the competing responsibilities of military service, family life and civilian employment.

• What positive and negative experiences do reservists have in moving between their reservist role, their family life and civilian employment?

• How do these experiences differ from regular personnel, from their civilian employers and family members?

• What are the attitudes and perceptions of regulars, civilian employers and family members to the competing demands of being a reservist?

• What are the factors that lead to successful recruitment and deployment?
