Job description

If you want to be right on the frontline, then the Infantry's for you. In The Royal Regiment of Scotland - known as The SCOTS - you'll become a world-class soldier, highly-trained and ready for anything. You'll then travel the world with the Army, using your skills to the full. Like all Soldiers, or 'Jocks' as they're known in our regiment, you'll get to learn, move into new roles and gain qualifications. It all makes for a great CV. Trained to the highest level to become a professional combat soldier, you'll be part of one of the best fighting forces in the world.


You'll do a 26-week Combat Infantryman's Course at the Infantry Training Centre at Catterick. The centre produces the best infantry soldiers in the world and will include your Phase One and Phase Two training. If you're thinking of joining at 16 or 17 years old, you'll need to do basic training at the Army Foundation College Harrogate and then 12 weeks specialist training at Catterick.

In training you will learn how to survive in different environments, fire weapons, give first aid and read maps whilst also improving your fitness. You'll even get your Cat B (car) driving licence. After your training you're ready to join The SCOTS - and uphold the proud traditions of the Scottish soldier.

The Army can help you gain a range of qualifications. These could include:- A range of driving licences
- Apprenticeships in Public Service, Communications, Engineering and Logistics
- Leadership and Management qualifications from GCSE to Degree level
- Foundation Degree level in Coaching and Mentoring
- A variety of driving licenses

We'll be behind you every step of the way as you move up the ranks. Right from the start of your training, you'll get the support and encouragement you need to make a success of your career. Work hard and you could get promoted, which will mean more responsibility and extra pay. And along the way, you'll pick up qualifications that are recognised by civilian employers.


You should be:- Regular Army age: 16 - 32.11 years
- Army Reserve age: 17.9 - 49.11 years

Qualifications you'll need:- No formal qualifications required

Interests you'll have:- Adrenaline rushes
- Outdoor activities
- Shooting
- Working outside
- Decision making and responsibility
- Driving
- Fitness
- Telecommunications

Our next deadline for application is the 31 st of January 2017, with further opportunities ongoing throughout the year. The sooner you apply, the sooner you'll be on your way to becoming a better you.
