THE ARMY IN WALES

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.
