THIS IS BELONGING
Everyone wants to belong to something. A football team, a family, a close-knit group of friends. The sense of belonging you find in the Army is next level. When you’ve trained together, side by side, learned things no classroom can teach you. When you’ve lived together and worked together, it creates a bond like no other. A bond that lasts a lifetime, and sees you through whatever life throws at you.
Working to make sure our soldiers receive any urgent care they might need: there are few more important roles in the Army than our Combat Medical Technicians. Whether you’re operating under the expert guidance of doctors at a medical centre, or are right on the front-line, it will be down to you to administer emergency treatment, evacuate causalities and deal with the day-to-day medical needs of soldiers in conflict and peace time. It’s a role that is vitally important – and the BBC have taken inspiration from this role for their TV drama Our Girl, starring Michelle Keegan.
Wherever the Army goes, we need expert medical professionals with us, so this role could see you anywhere in the world. From responding to humanitarian crises to providing care in field hospitals, you’ll be directly responsible for looking after the lives of soldiers and civilians across the globe. If you’re looking to make a difference and do something that really matters, this is the role for you. Find where you belong now.
Join us and you’ll start by learning the soldiering skills common to every member of the British Army, like outdoor survival and the safe handling of weapons. Then you’ll learn the specialist skills that will make you an expert in your role. Over 23 weeks, you will complete a course combining classroom study and hands-on practice in medical centres and ambulance stations, before joining a medical regiment or field hospital for 18 months’ practical work experience.
The Army can help you gain a range of qualifications. These could include:
• NVQ and City & Guilds Certification
• Diploma in Emergency and Primary Health Care
SHOW PEOPLE WHAT YOU’RE CAPABLE OF
We'll be with you every step of the way as you move up the ranks. From the moment you begin your training you'll get all the support and encouragement you need to make a success of your career. Work hard and you'll soon get promoted, which means more responsibility and extra pay. And you'll have plenty of opportunities to get qualifications that are recognised by civilian employers.
