The Army is more than just combat; it’s a place to do something that really matters. As 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. Join them and you’ll reach heights you never knew existed and learn vital skills that’ll set you up for life.
By 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 HGV’s, 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. This is your chance to do something that really matters.
