Job description

As a full-time Tank Crewman you'll receive the extensive training necessary to be a driver, gunner and loader in a state-of-the-art tank. You'll have an excellent ability to multi-task and work well under pressure as well as an enthusiasm for large vehicles. You'll get to drive the 62-tonne Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank, learn the ins-and-outs of operating such a vehicle as well as ensuring the communication systems are fluid. As you move up in your career, we'll give you the opportunity to be trained on additional vehicles like the new AJAX as well as give you the basic mechanical skills required to work with these highly-technical vehicles. And you'll do so while travelling the world, making life-long friends along the way.


You'll master military tactics and soldier skills before gaining an advanced understanding of your vehicle and how to use it. You'll have the opportunity to learn to how to drive other Army vehicles - from cars, trucks and heavy machinery. And you'll get hands-on with modern, hi-tech vehicle weapon systems.

The Army will pay for you to gain valuable qualifications. These could include:- HGV driving licences

- Foundation Modern Apprenticeship (FMA)


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: 16 - 32.11 years
- Army Reserve age: 17.9 - 49.11 years
