There are many different types of roles in the Army covering everything from frontline combat to cyber security, military police to chef. Every role in the Army has a part to play in making sure that the Army continues to Be the Best in everything it does.

When you join as a Regular Soldier, you'll live and work on military bases, either in the UK or overseas - but that doesn't mean you have to give up your old life. Unless you're away on operations or training exercise you'll normally work 8.30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday. You’ll get 38 days’ leave a year, which is more than most civilian jobs.

How to set up your own coaching business (Expert Training Online)

Have you always dreamt of setting up your own coaching business but not sure how? Are you currently setting up your practice and need a helping hand? Or have you set up your business and want some tips to help your business to grow further? Then join us for this hands-on and interactive masterclass, where we will help you to provide a way forward and answer your questions.

Over 18 months, and in collaboration with University of London, I spoke with business owners who had recently and successfully set up their own businesses. I found out what these entrepreneurs did and what they didn’t do that helped them to be successful in their business set up. This masterclass is built on these insights and findings. I will share these with you so that you can learn from their experience and successes.
