Working Hours & Shift Patterns
he Regular Army offers 38 days of paid leave each year – this is much more than many civilian employers and reflects the fact that you might have to work on some Bank Holidays. When you’re on operations you’ll be flown back to the UK for two weeks’ leave mid-tour, and get more leave when your tour ends. None of this comes from your annual allowance. The Army also has very good maternity and paternity leave arrangements.
Sport is a big part of Army life and there’s a wide range of individual and team sports you can take part in. You’ll get the chance to try some adventure sports too. The Army has training bases in Kenya, Cyprus, Belize and Canada, where your adventurous training might include kayaking, sailing, climbing, scuba diving and trekking.
