Take to the sea with the Army

“I have progressed from newly qualified deckhand all the way to vessel coxswain (skipper). In the process, I have travelled all around the world.”

Like working outdoors and being out on the water? A job as a Mariner could be ideal. You’ll serve on Army ships or boats, navigating and maintaining your vessel. You take the helm, use on-board equipment and work worldwide, often supporting Commando and Special Forces. Once you’re experienced, you could command your own crew. You start by learning all about your role and being a soldier. Then you go to Southampton, where you transport troops and supplies. You take maritime qualifications and learn about communication and teamwork. Activities and good mates bring fun and challenges off-duty.
