Technical roles

The Army isn’t just about soldiers on the frontline, in fact, the Army has over 200 different roles to choose from, including those with impressive technical opportunities. These technical roles are vital to ensuring the safety of our troops whatever environment they are in. You could join us as a Communication Engineer where you will be trained to ensure our troops have flawless communications and networks in the field, or as a Mapping and Planning Specialist, where you will map out disaster relief plans or top secret missions. Then there are our Intelligence roles where you will work to prevent cyber-security breaches and ensure fluid communication across a range of cultures.

Whatever opportunity you’re after, you’ll play an extremely important role in today’s Army, with extensive training from the get-go. And you’ll do so 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 that will not only enhance your military career, but stand you in good stead if you later decide to return to the civilian world.

• Military Engineer (Combat) course – Mapping & Planning Specialist specifically

• 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

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

You should be:
• Regular Army age: 16.6 - 32.11 years
