Currently into my first year of sixth form, I've always had the notion to join the military but I've decided now to get an idea of what I actually want to do. My plan is to join the OTC in uni, and the TA after then, but after I do the three years TA minimum if I liked it I would consider joining the regulars and doing a normal tour. I've found several jobs that look interesting, but they are specific jobs within each section of the army and I was wondering what the chances are that I would be able to get into each individual job. Currently I have shortlisted: Royal Signals Electronic Warfare Systems Operator Royal Artillery Gunner Crewman Royal Armored Corps Tank Crewman (reconnaissance) I'm also looking into the Marines for prospects. So my main questions are what are the chances of getting one of the specific jobs I want if I try as hard as I can and what are the opportunities for joining the Marines or other specialist forces once I have a firm base in said job. BARB test scores aside.
