Join as a full time Soldier

When you join as a Regular Soldier, you'll live and work on military bases, either in the UK or overseas - but that doesn't mean you have to give up your old life. Unless you're away on operations or training exercised you'll normally work 8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. You’ll get 38 days’ leave a year, which is more than most civilian jobs.

Your everyday life will depend on the role you choose. You will spend your time learning your trade - this could be anything from mechanics to communications systems.
