Support the careers that keep us safe.
As a full-time, entry-level HR Specialist in the British Army, you’ll:
· Be fully trained in HR but gain military skills that set you apart from civilian HR specialists
· Travel with your unit wherever they go – at home or overseas
· Gain qualifications up to degree level in HR Practice and Business Administration
· Enjoy exceptional prospects for promotion into specialist roles, such as Chartered Accountant
To qualify, you must be between 16 years 6 months and 35 years 6 months, pass a basic fitness test, and have GCSEs grade A – D / 9 – 3 in at least English Language and Maths (or equivalent).
Set yourself up for life.
During your initial training, you’ll earn £18,687, after which your salary will rise to £23,496. If you set your mind to it, you could reach Corporal within 5 years, earning £33,065.
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.
You’ll even get to travel the world, taking part in the Army’s adventurous training, and spending dedicated time playing the sports you love.
