3 Military Intelligence Battalion
3 Military Intelligence Battalion is an Army Reserve unit under the operational command of 1 Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance Brigade within Force Troops Command and is based in London and Cambridge.
Social and sporting activities
Alongside its formal military functions the Battalion has a strong family ethos with a wide range of social, sporting and other activities. Both Army Reserve Centres have a bar and these are fully utilised for social events through out the year. The Officers' Mess and the Warrant Officers' and Sergeants' Mess are active organisations, but there are also plenty of All Ranks social activities.
There are numerous sporting activities available, our soldiers and officers join all the Regular Intelligence Corps sports team and compete at a very high level. There is the opportunity to start your own sports team, and the Battalion has just started the Corps Equestrian Team - an example that every opportunity is open to our soldiers and officers. There are numerous Adventure Training opportunities - to both join Regular expeditions, or organise an event for the Battalion.
We are actively looking for committed men and women to serve as Military Intelligence Operators, who are willing to give up their time to train and operate alongside the Regular Army on exercise and operations as officers and soldiers. This is asking for a considerable commitment however, the challenges members will meet and overcome will deliver rewards both personal and financial.
3 MI Battalion also has a small number of vacancies for Military Chefs and Clerks and for Military Skills Instructors. These posts support the delivery of the Unit’s outputs and are a critical part of the team.
