Ministry of Defence Recruitment

Defence – defending the United Kingdom and its interests; strengthening international peace and security.

We have shown we succeed in what we do. But we will need to continue to adapt to a more uncertain world. We must be flexible and creative, harnessing new technologies and ideas to make best use of our resources.

That’s where you come in.

We need people from all walks of life who wish to make a real impact in Defence, and to overcome the challenges of the future; either as a civilian or as part of the armed services. In return, we offer you a vast array of fulfilling and varied careers, continuous development, and the chance to have a personal influence in this country’s security.
