51 (Scottish) Signal Squadron

What Do We Do?

51 Signal Squadron is located in Edinburgh.

We are part of 32 Signal Regiment, with specific responsibilities for supporting UK resilience operations in Scotland, connecting and enabling the exchange of critical information between the Government and Military decision makers. 

Beyond the UK operations role, we provide small teams to augment 2 Signal Regiment through the provision of manpower trained high bandwidth switching systems and wide area intranet services on overseas operations and exercises.

If you are looking for a new challenge with the opportunity to develop new skills both professionally and personally then 51 Signal Squadron offers the following roles:

Communications Systems Operator

You make sure that the communications network is working as well as possible for soldiers and commanders on the battlefield. You can become one of the most highly trained and qualified communications professionals in the British Army.

Communication System Operator

Combat Team Medic

You're first on the scene when soldiers are hurt or injured. Using your first aid and medical knowledge you provide fast and effective care, and help get the seriously injured back to medical bases quickly. It's a tough but rewarding role.

Combat Team Medic


An army marches on its stomach, and it's the Chef’s job to give soldiers a balanced and healthy diet, at home or overseas. You cook for everyone from new recruits to royalty, producing tasty meals in static kitchens or on the move in the field.


Human Resources

Like every organisation the Army needs financial, administrative, IT and secretarial skills, wherever it is in the world. You could be a PA to a senior officer or work on multi-million pound projects as part of the management accounts team.
