Entry- Level Technical roles
THIS IS BELONGING
Everyone wants to belong to something. A football team, a family, a close-knit group of friends. The sense of belonging you find in the Army is next level. When you’ve trained together, side by side, learned things no classroom can teach you. When you’ve lived together and worked together, it creates a bond like no other. A bond that lasts a lifetime, and sees you through whatever life throws at you.
The Army isn’t just about soldiers on the front line. There are over 200 roles to choose from, with lots of opportunity to learn valuable technical skills. These are vital to ensuring the safety of our troops wherever they are. You could join us as a Communication Engineer and ensure our troops have flawless communications and networks in the field, or as a Mapping and Planning Specialist, where you will help to plan disaster relief plans or top secret missions. Then there are our Intelligence roles where you will work to prevent cyber-attacks and communicate with people from different cultures.
Whatever opportunity you’re suited to you’ll play an extremely important role, with extensive training from the get-go. And you’ll travel the world, gaining valuable skills and qualifications along the way.
Basic training will teach you soldiering skills like how to survive outdoors and how to fire weapons. You’ll develop your fitness, mental toughness and leadership ability. Then you’ll have the opportunity to learn transferable skills that will not only enhance your military career, but stand you in good stead if you later decide to return to civilian life.
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
• Military Engineer (Combat) course – Mapping & Planning Specialist specifically
• Recognised language qualifications
• Diplomas in IT and Communication Technology
• A variety of driving licences
• Support in your study from degree to masters level across a range of subjects including Applied Computing, Science and Engineering
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.
