Job description

We'll train you so your cyber-security and linguistic skills are second to none so you can then put them to good use in missions in the UK and around the world. Your role will be important; you'll be preventing breaches by intercepting communications and advising Commanders on the situation. This will involve talking to variety of people to gain vital information on the enemy's plans. We'll also need your expertise on our many humanitarian missions and disaster relief operations. It's a big job with plenty of responsibility, so you'll need to work well under pressure and be able to provide clear, detailed information to your peers. And you'll learn key skills and qualifications that will make you highly employable outside of the Army, too. All while traveling the world as a key part of the team.


Training will teach you a language from beginner to expert level with focus on Middle Eastern and Central Asian languages. You'll apply these skills in different situations, from gaining intelligence from locals to interpreting and analysing enemy communications. You may also study the customs of the countries in which you operate. It's a great opportunity to gain great life-long skills. And there'll be plenty of opportunities for promotion along the way.

Phase 1 Training at Pirbright or Winchester will teach you the basics of being a soldier. Next, you'll do your Phase 2 Training at the Defence School of Languages near Bedford. Training lasts about 2 years. In that time you'll learn a foreign language up to diploma standard and learn how to use that language to help gather intelligence. Complete your Phase 2 training and you'll take on a lot of early responsibility as you're immediately promoted to Lance Corporal. We'll also give you a lump sum bonus upon completion. There'll also be the opportunity for you to complete a management course and graduate with a BEng.

The Army will pay for you to gain valuable qualifications. These could include:- Foundation and Advanced Apprenticeship - Information Communication Technologies
- Recognised Language Qualifications
- Masters in International Liaison and Communication

We'll be with you every step of the way as you move up the ranks. From the moment you begin your training you'll get all the support and encouragement you need to make a success of your career. Work hard and you'll soon get promoted, which means more responsibility and extra pay. And you'll have plenty of opportunities to get qualifications that are recognised by civilian employers.


You should be:- Regular Army age: 18 - 32.11 year

Qualifications you'll need:- GCSE grade C in English Language, Maths and any three other academic subjects

Interests you'll have:- Decision making and responsibility
- Helping people
- Technology
- Office work
- Humanitarian relief
- Languages
- Investigation and research

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.
