Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi all,

    I was wondering if there was any jobs out there in the wide world of the army involving psychology as an officer.

    Thanks.
     
  2. All Officers have to understand psychology especially if you want to succeed as a Staff Officer.
     
  3. I see what you mean, but i mean as a job that only involves psychology so working with distressed troops and similar things.
     
  4. do you mean a psychiatrist?
     
  5. Not sure about jobs, but you'll find plenty of distressed troops on this site.
     
  6. No, they get rid of those, it's not healthy having them around.
     
  7. What distressed troops or psychiatrists?
     
  8. Yes there are.

    Now piss off before I bum you into the middle of next week.

    All the best.
     
  9. The former. Although I consider that the latter are probably a bad idea too.
     
  10. They've kept me on and I've been distressed for years.

  11. It's a Cost/Benefit thing; don't worry your head about it.
     
  12. So i'm getting the impression that they are not popular here then.. haha
     
  13. Not quite, they have a job to do and just like everywhere, some are great, some are average and some are crap.
     
  14. Well im thinking about engineering and RE as an option or possibly a psychology job.
     
  15. Engineering or psychology...

    If you are quallified you could get some sort of number in the medics as a trick cyclist.
