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.


You could join the Infantry where you’ll be trained as an expert in modern combat. You'll also have the chance to choose a more specialist role, including; Machine Gunner, Mortar Operator, Driver and Sniper.

You may join as a Light Cavalry Crewman driving strong armoured vehicles that can make the difference in conflict. You could be driving or using heavy weapons but you’ll always be working as part of a close-knit team.

Whichever role you do, you’ll get the chance to do Adventurous Training like rock climbing, skiing or parachuting, play sport and gain a range of qualifications, such as driving licences.


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.

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.



 A career that guarantees excitement, variety and opportunities you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll learn the skills you need to serve your country and make your friends and family proud. The Royal Welsh, Welsh Guards and Queen's Dragoon Guards are combat units.

All three of these units are in the thick of the action when the time comes and are proud to represent Wales and do the country proud.

You’ll learn everything you’ll need in conflict situations and everything else the Army does, from driving armoured vehicles to helping with natural disasters.
