Be the one others turn to. Be responsible. Be trusted with the safety of the nation. Become a Royal Logistic Corps Officer in the British Army, and you’ll be doing something that really matters. Managing a complex supply chain and supporting fellow troops across land, sea and air, while helping to make the world a safer, better place.
The Royal Logistic Corps is the largest Corps in the Army. Specialising in anything from port operations to bomb disposal, it’s integral to every arena of operations and every military unit. In fact, it’s essential to everything the Army does. From vehicle parts and tools, to ammunition, rations and water, it maintains the Army’s capability by providing constant support to fellow soldiers.
You’ll be there to provide an essential service in peacetime and on strategic operations, from humanitarian relief to military deployment. Wherever the Army takes you, it will be your job to lead a team of technically qualified soldiers to offer support, wherever and whenever it’s needed.
