HQ Company (National)

Based in Leeds (Pudsey), HQ Company is the support element of the Battalion. It provides the logistical support to ensure the Battalion continues to operate; whether it's in a time of war, peace keeping or training. Without this vital support the Battalion would find it difficult to function effectively.

We have places available for signallers, drivers, medics, vehicle mechanics, armourers, chefs and many other trades. You do not need to be trained in these specialities, we will train you.

If you're interested in joining HQ Company it couldn't be easier. Simply GET IN TOUCH by using the contact number in the right hand panel. GIVE us a call and we’ll be happy to assist you with your application.

Please, don’t be put off if you get the answer phone. Leave us a brief message include; your Name and that you’re interested in joining 4 PARA and a contact number. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

NB. We'd suggest you read the information under the ‘Recruit Information’ Tab in the left hand side menu before you contact us. It outlines the criteria for applicants and the application process.
