Social Life

You’ll find life very social in the Army. Success relies upon you forming close ties with your mates, which means enjoying yourself in and out of work. What’s more, as a highly trained professional serving their country, you need some rest time. That’s when you re-charge your batteries, catch up with family, and enjoy the benefits that come with Army life.


We believe passionately in providing an excellent work/life balance, and the hours you work will be similar to any role in civilian life, with weekends free to spend as you wish. Of course if you’re on exercise, or overseas, or responding to a critical situation, then you will need to be flexible about this. But by and large, you’ll find yourself with some free time. Particularly when you consider that a lot of your sport and fitness training is done in work time.


When you are off duty, there’s a lot to keep you entertained on the Army bases. Gyms and swimming pools can be used by both you and your family. There are bars to relax in with your pals and shoot some pool. If you need a bit of peace and quiet for study or reading, there’s a well-stocked library. There are shops and hobby huts, plus many clubs for you to share your passion with like-minded people. This could be anything from motor biking to snowboarding.
