The Royal Signals are leaders in Information Technology and Communications for the British Army. We Provide the Army with communications throughout the world, and promise a varied and exciting Career.


Our role is to provide the Communications Infrastructure and Information systems that are required to Command and Control the best armed forces in the world. Whether you are an Officer or Soldier you will play a key role in providing this capability, and subsequently will be part of a close team that have earned the well deserved motto of Certa Ceto (Swift and Sure).

The Good Bit

However it is not 'all work and no play'. As a large Corps we offer a wide range of sporting and adventure training opportunities, such as an Annual Winter Sports camp in Austria where you will be taught to ski or snowboard and various expeditions overseas, for example to Nepal. Our sporting opportunities cater for the enthusiastic amateurs as well as the professional amateurs'. To top it all, regardless of how long you stay in the Corps, you will be trained and gain experience in skills in IT and Communications that will qualify you for employment when/if you decide the Army is no longer for you.

What Everyone Else Thinks

They are however notorious whiners - see the ARRSE Signals Board for proof. They are widely regarded by the rest of the Army as not quite as clever as they think they are. And if they edit this bit out again you can add humourless to the list.
