In 1912, MacGreevy successfully sat the Civil Service examination for the Assistant Clerk position. He was offered a place with the Charity Commissioners for England and Wales, and in April moved to London.
Before the outbreak of the Great War he began work at the Admiralty. After the declaration of War in August 1914, he was assigned to the Department of the Intelligence, probably as a Second Division Clerk. In March 1916 MacGreevy enlisted in the Royal Field Artillery and began active service in March 1917.©
