    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish Armed Forces are in a growth phase where increased volumes of conscripts accentuate the already strained supply of officers to the organization. The organization is facing the challenge of recruiting among the conscripts for the various officer training programs, while there is also an immediate need for officers to be able to take care of and train the conscripts who constitute the personnel of the future. In connection with the reintroduction of conscription, the categories of conscript platoon commanders and group commanders were also reintroduced. The purpose of this study is to gather the experiences of the training with complete advantage that these conscripted officers undergo, as well as the desire for continued involvement in the Swedish Armed Forces. Twelve conscript officer recruits at one of the military units that have reintroduced conscripted commanders were interviewed in focus groups in September 2022 and May 2023. The interviews were analysed through thematic analysis. The results indicate that experiences varied primarily based on the reception and treatment within the companies. The initial training was considered predominantly educational and of high quality. Challenges arose regarding ambiguity in roles and responsibilities, lack of knowledge about the new officer categories within the unit, and varying treatment. Personal challenges could be managed, while structural obstacles were perceived as more difficult to overcome. Inadequate utilization of one’s full capacity led to frustration, while high motivation and commitment was reflected in this experience. The motivation to continue commitment within the Armed Forces was influenced by factors related to the organization's offerings, job nature, and the global situation. 'Location' was a dual-impact factor where flexibility and mobility were attractive, while distance and its impact on civilian life negatively affected attractiveness. Motivational factors were linked to perceptions of different career paths within the Armed Forces. The vertical and horizontal dimensions of career development connected to the different officer categories influenced interest, while a lack of early information created uncertainty about career choices and the options available. The report concludes with some recommendations intended to further improve the effect of conscription training and increase motivation for continued commitment, which in the long run can have a positive impact on military capability.
