Job Description


Food, weapons, equipment - the Army needs a steady stream of supplies wherever it goes. You make sure the right things get to the right place at the right time using the latest tracking software. With our top notch training, you'll be an expert in warehouse management and storage, with qualifications to your name. It's a great CV that you can use in the civilian world. You'll also get an active Army life, full of sports, adventure, mates and more. You just need GCSE grade D (or equivalent) in Maths, English and another subject to apply.

Get in. Get on.

This job is all about getting vital supplies to our troops wherever they are - in jungles, deserts or on the battlefield. Wherever they're based, you'll make sure they get weapons, food, equipment and anything else they need. You learn to use special systems to do your job and drive a range of vehicles, including forklifts. The skills you learn and qualifications you take can help you build a career outside the Army in warehouse and storage management.

Get skills

If you want to know about supply, warehousing, accounting and distribution, this is the perfect job. You also learn about supply chain logistics and build your IT, communication and problem-solving skills. In time, you can become a leader and manager. Best of all, your training will be recognised by civilian employers, so you're in a great position if you leave the Army.

Get training

Basic training teaches you soldiering skills, like how to survive outdoors and how to fire weapons. Then it's off to the Royal School of Military Engineering Regiment near Camberley for nine weeks. Here, you learn military engineering skills such as knots and lashings, demolition, mine warfare and bridge building. Last but not least, it's 11 weeks' training at the Defence Logistics School in Deepcut. You learn how to manage engineering supplies and stores, and get an NVQ in Warehouse Management.

Get qualified

The Army can help you gain a range of qualifications. These could include:

  • Cat B and Cat C driving licences
  • Level 2 QCF Certificate in Warehousing and Storage - (City and Guilds)
  • Level 2 Award in ERR in the Logistics Industry - (City and Guilds)
  • Functional Skills English at level 1 - (City and Guilds)
  • Functional Skills Mathematics at level 1 - (City and Guilds)
  • MHE Licence including rough terrain forklift

Get promoted

We'll be behind you every step of the way as you move up the ranks. Right from the start of your training, you'll get the support and encouragement you need to make a success of your career. Work hard and you could get promoted, which will mean more responsibility and extra pay. And along the way, you'll pick up qualifications that are recognised by civilian employers.
