Emily Jane Tostevin is training for a level 3 diploma in clinical healthcare support with the Army
Emily Jane, 20, from Telford, is studying for a level 3 diploma in clinical healthcare support at the Defence School of Healthcare Training. She became aware of the opportunities available in the Army at her local careers office, through friends, and by looking at the Army jobs website.
Emily said: “I really wanted to work in a medical profession but this pathway was not possible on civvy street because of the GCSEs and AS-levels I studied. I didn’t want a boring job and was really attracted by the promise of travel and the personal development opportunities that the Army could invest in me. I have a lot of friends in the Royal Army Medical Corps, Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, Infantry and Armoured Corps, and they really encouraged me to join. I have definitely become more confident, physically fitter and more ambitious about what I want to achieve in my career.”
“My advice to those who are thinking of joining would be to research all the roles that are on offer in the Army as there are far more than I realised. I would really recommend a career in the Army to anyone looking for an exciting job away from the mundane nine to five.”
