ARMY SOLDIER
Part of our front line forces. Carried out vital work all over the world from peacekeeping and disaster relief to front line combat. Part of a team of exceptional soldiers – who’ll rapidly become your extended family.
Adrenalines rush and very motivated to push to my limits. Useful experience including anything from security, combat, and combat-lifesaving to driving and telecommunications. And it goes without saying that I need to reflect the kind of values we are famous for: courage, discipline, respect and loyalty.
