Want to get paid to learn skills for life?
You Belong Here.
In a full-time, entry-level Engineering role, you’ll:
· Keep the Army’s equipment working and ready to use
· Build bridges, repair roads, and rebuild infrastructure across the world
· Study for advanced trade qualifications in plumbing and electrical engineering
· Travel with your unit wherever they go – at home or overseas
Engineering in the Army includes many roles, you could work as an Electronics Technician, Recovery Mechanic, Plumber or Plasterer. Whichever route you take, you’ll work alongside your friends, and you’ll find a team where you can belong.
To qualify, you must be between 16 years 6 months and 35 years 6 months and pass a basic fitness test.
Set yourself up for life.
During your initial training, you’ll earn £18,687, after which your salary will rise to £23,496.
You’ll also receive 30 days’ annual leave every year (plus bank holidays and extra leave after operations), free medical and dental care, cheaper living costs, and free gym and sports facilities. And unless you're away on operations or training exercises, you'll normally work 8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
From your very first day of training with us, you’ll be gaining transferrable skills – skills that could set you up for life. You don’t need to know how to do the job before you get here, because we’ll give you all the entry-level training you need.
Plus, you’ll get to travel the world, taking part in the Army’s adventurous training, and spending dedicated time playing the sports you love.
