In Rosie Laydon's report, General Sir Nick Carter explains how flexible working hours and a force able to take on a technological-savvy enemy must be a priority for a modern Army in the 21st century.
The plans were announced by the Chief of the General Staff at the annual Land Warfare Conference in London.
Soldiers will be given the opportunity to job share, work part-time or choose flexible hours in a bid to double the number of female troops.
Flexible working hours will be introduced from 3 September but will not apply to people in units, on military operations, or are about to be deployed.
General Carter said: "If you are working in a job that is not at high readiness in an operational unit there is absolutely no reason why you should not perhaps be able to parade a bit later in the morning so that you children will be able to be dropped at the school."
