The United Kingdom's armed forces protect the security, independence and interests of the country at home and abroad.
The British Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Navy all fall under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Defence, who's aim is to ensure that the armed forces have the training, equipment and support necessary for their work, working with UK allies and partners whenever possible. 

Take a look at the various links and job roles below to see what could be in store for you. 

  • The Ministry of Defence also employs permanent and casual civilian personnel, including Royal Fleet Auxiliaries, Trading Funds and locally engaged civilians.
  • You need to be prepared to train hard and push yourself physically, mentally and emotionally to be the best you can be in all required disciplines, sometimes in dangerous and combat situations.
  • The rewards for the right candidates can include exceptional training and career development, working with the latest equipment and technology, helping to safeguard the UK's national security as well as that of vulnerable groups and populations, emergency and relief work, along with the excitement and deployment opportunities that are hard to find in other professions.
