Job description

Discover an exceptional career
Become a British Army Officer and you’ll have the responsibility of leading your team to help make the world a safer, better place. It’s not easy to lead – but the rewards are exceptional, the challenge is incredible and there’s no single bigger adventure in life. There’s nothing more rewarding than changing the world for the better, and no feeling more powerful than finding and fulfilling your purpose in life. This is why we lead.

What it takes – and where we can take you
What we look for in our Officers are leadership potential, a sense of purpose and the drive to succeed. With these qualities in place, we can give you the training you need to go far, taking your education, skills and abilities and helping you shape them into something amazing. From the moment you join the Army, you’ll be set on a clear path for promotion and progression, receiving all the support and opportunity you need to rise through our ranks and realise your potential.

Become a British Army Officer and you’ll:

  • Earn a starting salary upwards of £31,000 (after training)
  • Receive subsided accommodation and facilities, increasing your disposable income
  • Receive free medical and dental health cover
  • Have continuous access to promotional opportunities in order to continually progress your career
  • Have the opportunity to earn valuable professional qualifications
  • Take part in adventurous training and be able to play your favourite sports

The Army also offers financial support for its future leaders, with a range of Army Undergraduate Bursaries starting from £6,000, available to those interested in joining the Army as an Officer after university.

Becoming a British Army Officer
Starting your journey at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, you’ll learn all the skills you need to be an Officer – from weapons handling to outdoor survival – as well as what it takes to lead your team to tackle any challenge. Then, once you commission, you’ll take charge of 30 soldiers and begin the specialist training you need to be an expert in your role – whether that’s engineering, intelligence gathering or piloting an Apache helicopter.

From skiing in the Alps to white-water rafting in Colorado, you’ll take part in adventurous training around the world, while earning a competitive salary and enjoying all the benefits that come with Army life, from sports and state-of-the-art training facilities to earning valuable professional qualifications.

We were all born to do great things. To overcome. To empower. To change. This is why we lead. Find where you belong. Apply to become an Army Officer.
