Values and Standards
The Army’s Values and Standards are designed to ensure that all behaviour is lawful, appropriate and totally professional. Low standards damage the team, which could lead to failure on operations.
To hear about how the values and standards are central to everything the British Army does, watch this speech from W01 Glen Haughton (10 minutes).
Joining the Army involves making a commitment. It does take time to get used to Army life, but the Army will welcome you, train you and develop you.
If you decide the Army isn’t for you you’re free to leave. Like any job there is a notice period, which depends on how long you’ve served. Three months into your training, you decide if you want to leave or commit to stay on for four years.
It might sound like a big commitment but you get job security and time to take advantage of all that the Army can offer, like travel, qualifications, sport, a good income and friends for life.
We’ll help you uncover strengths you didn’t even know you had. You’ll soon start noticing the benefits.
Being a parent in the ArmyEveryone who joins the Army has the same challenges, rewards and opportunities.
The Army supports serving parents and carers by offering flexible working opportunities and excellent maternity, paternity and shared parental leave options.
