Entry-Level Specialist Roles
BECOME A BETTER YOU
The Army isn’t just about soldiers on the frontline, in fact, the Army has over 200 different roles to choose from including some very unique specialisms. You could become a Musician and find yourself Trooping the Colour, or join our medical team as a Nurse, caring for our soldiers and their families. There are also a number of opportunities in HR and Business Administration where you will play a vital role in keeping our Army in order. Whatever specialism you’re interested in, chances are the Army has the opportunity – you just need the ambition and drive to make a difference and in return, you’ll get a varied and exciting role, with exceptional training offered from the get-go. And you’ll do it all while travelling the world and gaining valuable skills and qualifications along the way.
Basic training will teach you soldier skills, like how to survive outdoors and how to fire weapons. Not only this, you’ll develop your fitness, mental toughness and leadership ability. You will then have the opportunity to learn new transferable skills in your chosen speciality that will not only enhance your military career, but stand you in good stead if you later decide to return to the civilian world.
The Army will pay for you to gain valuable qualifications. These could include:
• Apprenticeships (NVQ/SVQs) in Engineering, Information Communication Technology, Retail, Public Service and Logistics
• Leadership and Management qualifications from GCSE to Degree level
• Variety of driving licences
• Supporting Learning and Assessment in Practice (SLAiP)
• The chance to get a bursary through your medical studies
• Diplomas in a range of Music subjects
SHOW PEOPLE WHAT YOU’RE CAPABLE OF
We'll be with you every step of the way as you move up the ranks. From the moment you begin your training you'll get all the support and encouragement you need to make a success of your career. Work hard and you'll soon get promoted, which means more responsibility and extra pay. And you'll have plenty of opportunities to get qualifications that are recognised by civilian employers.
