Ministry of Defence

Our work is anything but uniform

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is a central government department with a mission to protect our country and provide the ultimate guarantee of its security and independence, as well as helping to protect its values and interests abroad. The MOD is made up of the armed forces, reserves and civilians.

The Army Civil Service provide crucial support to the British Army in its purpose of protecting the United Kingdom’s interests at home and abroad, providing a safe and secure environment in which all British citizens can live and prosper.

The Army Civil Service is a critical component of the Army's whole force, not only in terms of professional skills and business continuity, but also for the diversity of thought and challenge that it brings.  The workforce undertakes a vast range of roles from teachers and psychologists to logisticians, financiers, commercial, project managers and policy staff, all of whom enable the Army to deliver its core outputs.

Our People, Your Future

You can expect support in developing current skills and guidance in learning new ones to further your career. Our staff also benefit from a reward scheme that recognises expertise and individual performance no matter the grade.

The Army Civil Service also takes pride in supporting wellbeing in the workplace and offers direct and free access to an Employee Assistance Programme (EAP). The EAP is a confidential employee benefit designed to help staff deal with personal and professional concerns that could affect home or work life, health and general wellbeing.
