Army to showcase available opportunities in virtual event

The British Army are virtually visiting West Midlands to speak to potential soldiers throughout November.

A series of virtual events are being organised to showcase the life of a soldier in the British Army, with the unique opportunity to get up to speed with the latest kit and equipment used by the Army.

On Monday 23 November at 6pm, the Army will be running an event looking at roles available in the Royal Logistic Corps alongside local soldiers from West Midlands Careers Centres. You can register your interest here.

On Wednesday 25 November at 6pm, the Army will be running an event comparing Army and civilian jobs, proving they're not as different as the might think! You can register your interest for that event by clicking here.

Residents are encouraged to visit virtually. Captain Smith, from the Royal Logistic Corps, has been in the Army for 8 years, and said:

“I’ve had the opportunity to travel around the world in my role, from scuba diving in Malta, mountaineering in the French alps to obtaining my mountain biking, and diving instructor qualifications - all whilst being paid!

"I’m currently managing the West Midlands and Wales Outreach Team and I joined the Army for career variety, as an Officer in the RLC we move roles every two years and get to take on new challenges.

"I’m looking forward to meeting everyone virtually throughout November and answering questions about my experiences in the Army”.

The British Army supports people in achieving their personal and professional goals, whether it’s conquering a pull up or taking on a leadership role. The Army is recruiting and there is a breadth of roles and opportunities available in both the Regular Army and Army Reserve, from
helicopter pilot to nurse, from engineer to IT specialist.

You can go sky diving or skiing abroad as part of adventure training and gain further qualifications such as an apprenticeship or a degree. As part of life in the British Army, lifelong friendship bonds are formed and incredible challenges are overcome to achieve worthwhile results, for example saving lives by providing assistance on humanitarian or peacekeeping missions at home or abroad.

To find out further information about joining the Army Reserves or Regular Army visit your local Army Careers Centre, where one of our careers advisers will be happy to answer any questions about joining or visit
