    Pros

    You get to experience a lot of things you would not get to as a civvie. Decent pay and operational uplift. Get to work with interesting people and will make great mates.

    Cons

    Will be expected to work anti-social hours and might get leave at short notice. Might have to do some unpleasant and unsafe work.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage people of they don't need it.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at The British Army.

    Interview

    British Army 6th form scholarship board: BE YOURSELF, ask advice from current Army Officers, practice mental arithmetic, practice planning exercises (find them on Army website), be fit.. The board is a competition with limited places for those still in school. (about 40 were given in 2014), don't worry if you don't get it, come back and do AOSB further down the line. You will be split up into groups of 8 (usually) on arrival and given a bib with a number (you will be addressed by that number) There are several assessments over the 2 days: Command tasks Leaderless tasks Planning exercise Mental aptitude tests Current affairs essay Interview on education. General interview Bleep test Personal obstacle course Explanation of these can be found all over the Internet. Please note this is similar but not the same as the Army Officer Selection Board (AOSB) Some Assessments are removed and there is no briefing weekend (but there will be short briefings before each assessment). For eligibility go to the British Army website.

The British Army is made up of Regulars who work full time and Reservists who work in their spare time. Its primary task is to help defend the interests of the UK, which consists of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. This may involve service overseas as part of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) force or any other multi-national deployment. Soldiers may also be deployed on United Nations (UN) operations and used to help in other emergencies.
