DO YOU WANT TO JOIN THE ARMY?
Within this awesome resource, we have provided you with everything you need to successfully pass the Army selection process. The content has been created in conjunction with Army careers office recruitment staff to bring you the very best insider information.
Before you begin the Army selection process it is essential you understand the core values required in order to become a British Army soldier.
As a soldier, you will be highly trained and you will be able to carry out your tasks both professionally and competently. However, if the Army did not have a set of core values and it did not have control of its people, then things could soon go wrong. As a soldier, it can be a difficult task balancing the aggression of combat with the self-discipline that is required to perform under immense pressure.
THE ARMY SELECTION PROCESS
The Army selection process is designed to test your suitability to life within the Army. It can be a difficult process if you don’t prepare and can be a nerve-wracking one too. But the rewards of a career with the British Army are exceptional. A good salary, the chance to travel, and also work as part of one of the most professional and respected organisations in the world make it all worthwhile.
Whether you decide to pursue a career in IT/communications, healthcare, logistics, combat, or engineering, you can be certain that your career in the British Army will be rewarding and immensely satisfying.
The Army selection process for regular soldier consists of:
- STEP 1 – Make contact with the Armed Forces Careers Officer (AFCO). Submit your application for joining the Army as a soldier. (Note: you are not committed at this point)
- STEP 2 – Army aptitude tests and AFCO interview.
- STEP 3 – Attend the Army Development & Selection Centre (ADSC).
- STEP 4 – Medical and further checks.
- STEP 5 – Offer of employment and initial training.
the British Army values
The values of the British Army are as follows:
- Selfless Commitment – putting other people before you.
- Courage – facing up to danger and doing what is right at all times.
- Discipline – being able to maintain constant high standards, so that others can rely on you.
- Integrity – earning the respect and trust of your work colleagues.
- Loyalty – being faithful to your work colleagues and to your duty.
- Respect for others – treating others with decency and respect at all times.
THE ARMY SCORING CRITERIA
Whilst carrying out our research to create the How To Join The Army guide and interview resources we have even managed to obtain the scoring criteria for the entire Army selection process. This exclusive content is contained within your guide.
Here are two important tips to help you get started:
In order to become a British Army Soldier, you will need to be fully prepared and focused. As with any selection process for any job or career you need to prepare yourself fully. We believe that you should carry out as much research as possible about the Army and your chosen career or trade.
When you decide to apply to join the Army you need to understand what the job is about and how it will affect your life, both professionally and socially. The British Army is looking for people who are professional, flexible, committed, and motivated along with being an effective team player.
You will be required to sit a number of tests and exercises throughout the selection process, including tests that assess your physical fitness. Again, you must prepare for every eventuality. The Army will require you to run a set distance (1.5 miles) within a set time and the only way to prepare for this is to practise, practise and practise some more!
The British Army prides itself on its great ability to operate as a team unit.
Try to think of the best football teams in the country. Those that are the most successful are not the ones that have one or two great players, but the ones that have the best overall team. The ability to work as part of a team is essential, and you will be assessed on this throughout the Army selection process.
Within the Army you will be required to work in a team environment every day in order to carry out tasks both small and large. Whether you are working as an Aviation Support Specialist or a Chef, you will need to have very good teamwork skills. Although team skills will be taught during your training, you will still need to demonstrate that you have the potential to become a competent team member throughout the selection process. It is far better if you have experience of working as part of a team prior to joining the Army. If you play a form of team sports then this is even better. There are many definitions of the word ‘teamwork’ but the one that we believe sums it up most effectively is:
The process of working effectively with a group of people in order to achieve a goal.
