Pension, FHTB and free gym.
Health cover including dental care
Good holiday although you work bank holidays majority of the time
I don't think anybody really knows where they stand at the moment with regards to the current Armed Forces Pension scheme, other than the fact it isn't anywhere near as good as it used to be!
Dental and medical cover
Free medical and dental care. Sports including gym membership. The best non-contributory pension as well as many other unique benefits like reduced cost accommodation including family housing options.
Great career that will take you around the world. Good salary and a I’ll take you through a journey like no other! Worst part is short notice deployments.
More benefits and better pay at civilian company
There is a benefits calculator to estimate the civilian equivalent to the accommodation and medical benefits.
Best thing is free dental, gym, tons of annual leave and full pay when sick. Worst is you never get pay for overtime as you are on duty 24/7 and when out of the country I got payed an extra £7 a day.
