The Biggest Team You’ll Ever Join!
Men and women who want to do something different. Full time soldiers – working, living and socialising with their work mates. They are more than soldiers, they are also skilled tradesmen and women – could this be you?
As a Regular soldier you’ll live and work on Military bases, either in the UK or overseas – but that doesn’t mean that you have to give up your old life.
Unless you’re away on operations or training exercises you’ll normally work 8:30am – 5pm Monday to Friday.
You’ll also get 38 days leave per year (including bank holidays), which is more than most civilian jobs!
Recruits in initial training receive £15,671 per year in salary! Once you have progressed to the rank of Private Soldier your salary increases to £20,000 per year. By the time you reach the rank of Sergeant salary increases to £35,150.
98% of Soldiers enrol on an apprenticeship, making the Army one of the largest apprenticeship programmes in the UK and allowing you to continue your education!
You don’t need to take on a combat role to join the Army – there are over 200 different job roles including:
– HR, Finance & Support
– Intelligence, Communications & IT
– Logistics & Support
Taking Up This Offer
Prior to making an application, care leavers are welcome to attend our Work Experience Programmes that we deliver on a regular basis nationwide. These are typically 3 days in duration and will provide you with valuable experience and an opportunity to discover whether an Army career is for you.
