The SCOTS on exercise in the Scottish Highlands

join the regiment


Serving as an officer in the British Army is both challenging and rewarding in equal measure.  A career can be anything from 5 years to 35 years, with the opportunity to serve in many different locations (home and abroad) and in many different roles. British Army officers are trained at the world renowned and prestigious Royal Military Academy of Sandhurst and Infantry Officers do further training at the Infantry Battle School in Wales. Here they are educated and trained in the skill sets required to command an Infantry Platoon in the most demanding operations.

To be an Infantry Officer you will need to successfully complete both these demanding training courses but to be an Infantry Officer in The Royal Regiment of Scotland you will need to have a passion to lead, command and manage some of the best soldiers in the world, the Jocks.
