I have plans within the next year or so to join the rifles possibly however the one thing that's swaying me about that decision is the life after service. I've been told to go for a trade but unfortunately i am not so heavily technically minded plus i wanted to spend my career in what i think is the spearhead part of the army. I've heard when you leave the infantry, you have minimal qualifications and it's impossible to get a good sustainable employment after. I've also heard you can gain trade qualifications and useful skills from the infantry which make employment after easier. Can anyone clarify on this?
