The Army in East Anglia

Whatever role you choose, from an electrician to an engineer, we’ll be there to support you every step of the way. The sense of belonging you find in the Army is next level. When you’ve trained together, side by side, learned things no classroom can teach you. When you’ve lived together and worked together, it creates a bond like no other.

A bond that lasts a lifetime, and sees you through whatever life throws at you. In the Army, it’s about having a go-getting attitude and the drive to make a difference whilst working as part of a close-knit team. We’ll give you the opportunity to travel the world, experience different cultures and gain a host of skills all whilst earning a decent salary along the way.

Come and see us at our local events near you in March and learn about apprenticeships, or call you local careers office:

You can catch us out and about in March too:

  • Ipswich Town Hall 2nd March 10am - 4pm
  • Ipswich Army Careers Centre – Open until 7pm Fridays, and all day Saturday in March
  • Norfolk Skills Show 6th – 7th March

Achieve more than you ever imagined, all before you turn 18. At the Army Foundation College, Harrogate, you can make yourself - and everyone around you - proud.

There’s still time to join the Army Foundation College in March 2019. You'll become a well-rounded Junior Soldier - physically, conceptually and morally, as you learn soldiering skills, undertake adventurous training and develop yourself alongside people who will become friends for life.
