SAF Volunteer Corps Starts Recruiting in 2015

Posted by VolunteerSG Admin | Posted in General info | Posted on 15-12-2014

Ever fancied serving alongside our men in the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) ?

Every able-bodied man and woman between the ages of 18 and 45 who is exempt from national service, will be eligible to sign up for the military volunteer corps.
The SAF Volunteer corps will be set up by the middle of 2015 and it will target , first-generation permanent residents and new citizens. They will serve alongside regulars and national servicemen.
Volunteers will be able to serve Singapore in two tracks:
  • Operations – guarding the Republic’s key installations like Jurong Island and crowd control during SAF-related events
  •  Specialist – applying their expertise in the legal, medical, psychological and maritime fields, among others.
Just like full-time national servicemen, volunteers will have to serve up to two weeks every year, for at least three years. They will also don the uniform and undergo a four-week course to familiarise themselves with operations and military culture.
Specific details about their training and whether they will receive an allowance are currently being worked out.
Acknowledging calls that new citizens and first-generation PRs fulfil National Service (NS) obligations, Defence Minister Ng Eng Hen noted that most people accept that it is difficult for those who came to Singapore late as working adults to serve.
He stressed that, “NS must be for a real and critical need to defend Singapore, neither tokenistic nor symbolic.”
Dr Ng added that it was because of this reason, that the Committee for Strengthening National Service (CSNS) had recommended establishing the SAF Volunteer Corps, to allow those without NS duties to contribute towards defending Singapore.
