Job description

Whether light role, mechanized or armoured, the infantry serve in the most challenging and hostile environments. In a British Army infantry regiment you'll become a world-class soldier, highly-trained and ready for anything. You'll go overseas on exercises and operations, using your skills to the full. Like all soldiers, you'll get to learn, move into new roles and gain qualifications that will strengthen your 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.

As part of the Army's frontline team you could get involved in everything from peace-keeping and disaster relief to armed conflict. You'll serve with great soldiers in a famous regiment, learning about its history and traditions. You'll experience extraordinary things, make great friends, and travel all over the world.

You'll start by training to be a rifleman - skilled in modern combat and an excellent field soldier. After that you can specialise. You could become anything from a Machine Gunner, Mortarman or Anti-tank Missile Operator to a Driver, Combat Signaller or Sniper. Later in your career, you'll get more responsibility and learn new skills, like how to command and manage teams of soldiers, and how to train and coach junior soldiers. Your communication skills will be second to none, as you may end up supporting senior officers. There are lots of jobs, and you're not locked into the same role forever - there's always the option to switch and try something different.

Your Phase One and Phase Two training will be delivered over the 26-week Combat Infantryman's Course at the Infantry Training Centre at Catterick. If you're thinking of joining at 16 or 17 years old, you'll do your Phase 1 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. You'll also work hard at your fitness, and get your Cat B (car) driving licence. After your training you'll join your chosen regiment and start your career as a British Army Infantry 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:
Standard entry between 17 and 33 years
Junior entry between 16 and 17 years and five months
Army Reserve at 18 years old although you can apply at 17 years and 9 months

Qualifications you'll need:
No formal qualifications required

Interests you'll have:
Adrenaline rushes
Outdoor activities
Working outside
Decision making and responsibility

Our next deadline for application is the 31st 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.
