    Dear Xxxx,

    In preparation for your Job Interview at the Army Careers Centre at xxxx on xx/xx/2013 I have put together some information that you MUST know prior to arriving. Please take the time to study this information as you will be asked about it at interview:

    1. Fitness. You need to have recently completed a measured 1.5 mile run. This can be done either on a running track (6 x laps = 1.5 miles) or on the road/pavement (this needs to have been measured using a car for guidance). Please DO NOT do it on a running machine.

    2. The Assessment. You will need to demonstrate a good knowledge of what you will be expected to do during your 1.5 days at the Army Assessment Centre (AAC).

    3. Phase 1 Training. You will need to show that you understand what you will be doing at Phase 1 training, should you be selected. You need to know where your training will be, how long it will last and what things you will be doing during your time there (drill, fitness, weapon handling etc). This information can be found on the British Army website.

    4. The British Army. Please ensure that you research the British Army and know about which job/jobs you would like to do in the Army (your job choices) including where the training is conducted and how long it will last. You should know what the role of the Army is and have knowledge of any current operations. All of which can be found on the website.

    5. Terms and conditions. You should show that you have an understanding of the Army’s Terms and Conditions of Service; how long you could serve and what your minimum commitment would be.

    6. Qualifications and documentation. Please bring with you all qualification certificates that you have (in particular GCSE Maths, English and Science). I will need to check them to ensure that you are suitable for your job choice. Also bring x2 forms of photo identification (driving licence, passport) and proof of address (bank statement etc).

    7. British Army’s Values & Standards. These are Courage, Discipline, Respect for Others, Integrity, Loyalty and Selfless Commitment and you will be asked to give examples of when you have displayed all of these qualities.

    8. As part of your preparation we would recommend you visit the getting ready section on the Army website. I look forward to seeing you at your Job Interview (please dress smartly) and wish you the best of luck in your application to join the Army.
