If you’ve got questions about Army life or want to chat to someone about whether joining the Army is right for you, you can talk to one of our recruiters. You don't need an appointment but it’s best to phone ahead and arrange a time to talk to someone, as our centres can get busy and you may have a long wait if you choose to drop in.

Some members of our team will be in uniform, and others won’t. We don’t mind whether you come in wearing your work clothes or jeans – we’re more interested in you, and why you’re considering a career in the Army.

You can ask us anything about Army life, such as training, career opportunities, travel prospects, pay and much more. We’ve got the answers to all these questions – and the ones you haven’t even thought of yet.

We’ll tell you about the whole variety of Army roles available. There’s a huge range to choose from including chefs, tank crewmen, nurses, vehicle mechanics and electricians to name but a few. We’ll help you find the one that suits you best, and to make the biggest decision of all – whether life in the Army is right for you.


You’ll probably leave the office with lots to think about. Feel free to come back any time to talk some more, and we can help you make the next step towards joining the Army.

If you decide you’re ready to take things further, you can start your application online.
