Celebrating International Women’s Day

Celebrating International Women’s Day

We celebrate International Women’s Day by focusing on the achievements of Cpl Hannah Roberts!

Cpl Hannah Roberts from 251 Signal Squadron, 10 Signal Regiment, has never been one to say no to a new challenge.

At 18, instead of going to university she decided it suited her better to join the Army and enroll in our apprenticeship scheme.

Now, nine years later she’s had an exceptionally varied career with the Royal Signals, including two operational tours of Afghanistan, a ceremonial role at Prince Harry and Meghan’s wedding and duties in the UK including supporting the emergency services. She’s also thrown herself into adventure training (AT), trying everything from parachuting to gorge walking.

Hannah has an inner strength that she puts down to her daily yoga and mindfulness sessions, and was recently asked to appear as a guest on Adrienne’s Power Hour Podcast. This show focuses on the first hour you awake each day and how this time has the potential to set up the rest of your day for either success or failure.
Now, after nine years in the Royal Signals, she feels her service and other activities like AT have given her the confidence to address other areas of her life that she feels could be enhanced. One is education, and Hannah is currently investigating the options for doing a university degree.

The Royal Signals is proud to offer one of the widest ranges of employment and other opportunities for women the Army, and we’re proud to have people like Hannah in the Corps.
