Who we are

We’re proud to work alongside the Army to attract, source and select officers and soldiers for the British Army (Regular & Reserve) as part of the Recruiting Partnership Project (RPP). RPP is where Capita and the Army unite to look after those who apply to the British Army, and guide and nurture them on their journey into basic training.

It’s only by working closely together that we’re able to get the best candidates into the Army to strengthen our nation’s security and defence. Whether you work full-time or part-time, in an office, on-site in a military barracks or at home, you’ll discover a truly collaborative environment. We foster an inclusive, open and honest culture where expertise and experience are shared, and everyone’s ideas are encouraged. You’ll be joining a passionate and motivated team with a diverse mix of backgrounds and perspectives.

Find where you belong

Our close-knit team is made up of both Capita and military colleagues in a wide variety of roles – including recruiters, assessors-interviewers, administrators, doctors and other medical staff, supporting function roles and more. Join us and not only will you help Army candidates find where they belong, you’ll help make the Army the best it can be to keep our country protected.

Why join us?

We’re focussed on delivering the best outcomes for the Army, their candidates, and our colleagues. That’s why you’ll benefit from a vast range of standard and voluntary benefits designed to suit your lifestyle and support your financial, social, physical, and mental wellbeing. As well as a progressive and inclusive environment, you’ll enjoy:

    23 days’ holiday (rising to 27 after five years of service) with the opportunity to buy extra leave.

    The opportunity to take a paid day out of the office, volunteering for our charity partners or a cause of your choice.

    15 weeks’ fully paid maternity, adoption and shared parental leave, paternity pay of two weeks.

    An array of flexible benefits, the costs of which are spread over the year via the payroll. Some of these great benefits like Cycle to Work are available to select monthly and others – such as medical cash plans and car/gadget insurances – can be selected on a yearly basis. 

    These are additional, voluntary benefits designed to suit your lifestyle – with discounts on retail and socialising, to health and wellbeing, travel, technology, and more.

    Access to our Employee Network Groups, which represent every strand of diversity and allow colleagues to connect and learn from each other on an open, inclusive platform.

    Training time and the opportunity to work towards professional qualifications, including an array of apprenticeships.

    What to expect

    The selection process


    An initial chat with us

    Once your application has been received, you’ll be contacted by a member of our Capita Resourcing team who’ll discuss the role with you and learn more about your skills and experience.



    If your skills and experience match the role you applied for, your application will be progressed to interview stage. This is a competency-based interview, face-to-face or via video link. Depending on the role, an assessment scenario may also be included.



    Should you be successful at this stage, you’ll be issued a verbal offer of employment, followed up by a written contract via our candidate portal within 24-48 working hours.


    Background checks

    Once you’ve received the contract, your candidate file will progress to the background checks, which take six weeks on average to complete. The checks include referencing, gaps in employment, financial probity and a minimum of a standard DBS check (role-dependent).


    Confirmation and start date

    Once the background checks are complete, we’ll confirm your start date and provide you with all the information you need for your first day with us.

    *Background check timeframes depend on the level of security vetting required, which may differ for different roles. Vetting timeframes are dependent on the candidate completing all the necessary paperwork and submissions, and any external vetting sources providing information in a timely manner to support the completion of the process. Please speak to a member of the Capita Resourcing team if you have any questions.
