Armed forces

What's this about?

Are you looking for a way of life rather than a job? Are you keen on being part of a team and enjoy working under pressure? 

Are you adventurous, looking to see the world, enjoy variety and want to develop new skills and gain further qualifications – then a career in the Armed Forces could be for you. 

Made up of the Army, The Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy the Armed Forces employ over 200,000 people full time, and in the reserves. 

There are a huge variety of jobs ranging from medical, logistics, communications, technical and engineering, weapons and infantry. 

On joining the armed forces you’ll be assigned a rank and will then be able to progress to higher ranks. If you have a certain level of achievement at GCSE and A levels or equivalent you could apply to join as an officer and take on a leadership role.
