For many, selection will be a result of their own choice to apply for consideration to be made redundant. For others, it will be unwelcome. All notifications will be made either face-to-face or by telephone.
Applicants will serve up to six months' notice before leaving the Armed Forces, while non-applicants will serve up to 12 months' notice. Those who wish to leave earlier can ask their Service.
Those selected for redundancy, and who meet the selection criteria, will have the opportunity to apply to shortage area categories.
The Royal Navy and Royal Marines are notifying approximately 170 personnel that they are to be made redundant, of whom approximately 120 (72 per cent) are applicants and 50 (28 per cent) non-applicants.
The Army are notifying approximately 2,900 personnel they are to be made redundant, of whom approximately 2,100 (72 per cent) are applicants and 800 (28 per cent) non-applicants.
The RAF are notifying approximately 730 personnel they are to be made redundant, of whom approximately 515 (71 per cent) are applicants and 215 (29 per cent) non-applicants.
All notification letters will set out clearly the next steps and explain where Service personnel can find further advice.
This will be the last major tranche of redundancies for the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Royal Air Force.
