“MY JOB INVOLVES LISTENING TO INTERCEPTED ENEMY COMMUNICATIONS AND PROVIDING ANALYSTS WITH RELEVANT INFORMATION."
You'll specialise in intercepting and analysing communications, working with complex, state-of-the-art computers and equipment. You'll probably learn to speak a foreign language to a high level, with the option to specialise in an area like communications or cyber warfare. You don't need a technical background and you don't have to speak any foreign languages already to apply - you'll be paid to learn on the job. You'll normally be employed in the UK, in a range of locations and environments, with some overseas deployments.

Training For The Role

Step 1
You'll start with your initial military training which will teach you how to be a soldier - this will cover everything from fieldcraft to how to handle a rifle. Your training will be at Pirbright or Winchester and last for 14 weeks.

Step 2
You'll do your Phase 2 training at the Defence Centre for Languages and Culture near Bedford. You will do an initial 15 weeks course in understanding communications. On successful completion of this course you will attempt your Junior Command and Leadership course to promote to the rank of Lance Corporal. If you are going on to be a linguist, you will undertake a further 18 months of intensive language training.
