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.

Part of the Royal Logistic Corps, our Drivers play an essential role in transporting soldiers and supplies across the world. Whether driving through desert, jungle, snow or on mountain roads, it’s down to them to make sure their cargo – from people, to ammunition, to rations and equipment – make it to their destination safe and sound.

Joining our team, you’ll have the chance to see the world and experience real adventure in a fast-paced and exciting role. From quad bikes to HGVs, we’ll train you on a range of vehicles and provide you all the support you need to realise your potential in one of the most important roles across our ranks. Ready to make a difference and create memories that will stay with you forever? Find where you belong now.

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.
