The rewards you receive are measurable to the effort you put in.
Operational Support Officer (Current Employee) – UK – 20 January 2019
Being in the Army is hard work. Sometimes long hours, sometimes difficult decisions to be made and sometimes you don’t get to have a decision at all. You must be a self motivator, you must have a sense of humour and you must be prepared to put in some hard graft if you want to develop yourself professionally and personally. However, there are few places who will pay you to learn, provide you with friends for life, encourage you, support you and provide you with a home, free healthcare and who will worry about your family when you can not. It’s a lifestyle, not a 9-5 job. You will have moments of frustration, despair and melancholy, but you will also have moments of pride, enthusiasm, excitement and elation. For the right person, with the right mindset, the British Army could be your best move ever.
