Jobs in The Army - APPLY NOW!

A unique opportunity - Graduate careers
The Army needs officers and soldiers who are professionally qualified. That’s why we offer a number of schemes to help you complete your studies and training before you join the Army. We also provide advantages few other graduate careers can match such as unique opportunities to utilise and further develop your skills once you join.

Taking the lead - Officer careers
As an officer, you’re in charge of a team of soldiers. It’s up to you to use their skills and direct their work to get the job done. You look after their welfare and deal with any problems to keep your team working at its best. Most officers are graduates, but you don’t need to have a degree – your personal qualities are as important as your qualifications.

The lifeblood of the Army - Soldier careers
Soldiers play vital roles at home and abroad, making sure the Army’s work gets done. When you become a soldier you sign up for at least four years including the time you spend training. Whether you serve for four years or twenty, there will be promotions and pay rises to recognise your hard work and courses to develop your skills.

University events
The Army is one of the largest UK employers of graduates and has a well earned reputation for the quality of its leadership and management training. You have a unique opportunity to attend a number of events we are hosting in the East Midlands and East Anglia, as we’re sending out a team to explain what we do and what we can offer you.

Get financial support as you study
Student life can be expensive, but the Army can help with the cost of continuing your education. We have scholarships, grants and bursaries to help you get qualifications before you join and throughout your Army career. When you leave the Army, you can go back into full-time education heavily subsidised by the Army through the Enhanced Learning Credits (ELC) scheme. Click here to find out more.
