Women in The British Army

Three women soldiers sitting down

Women have been a vital part of the British Army for the last 101 years, and we currently employ over 13,000 women, based in the UK and abroad.

A SOLDIER IS A SOLDIER

There are no ‘female soldiers’ in the British Army.

Just soldiers.

A soldier is a soldier.

Equal pay.
Equal opportunities.
Equal expectations.

Find a career defined by skill not gender.

"Being in the Army gives me great career opportunities. Pay scales are transparent so I know I'm being paid the same as my male colleagues."

The British Army is at the forefront of equal pay, with men and women on the same payscale. It's not just in the pay packet that women are equal. They are also treated with the same respect as their male colleagues.

ARE MEN AND WOMEN TREATED EQUALLY?

Pay and promotion

Men and women are on the same pay scale and are paid according to rank. The Army promotes people based on their performance, capability and potential. Every soldier receives an annual report and the best people are selected for promotion.

Training

Men and women get the same high standard of training. All role related fitness standards are the same, and unrelated to gender. This makes sure that everyone is fit enough to do the job.
