Opportunities for those currently serving in The Royal Corps of Signals

Special Forces Communicator (SFC)

The best move you will ever make

Service as an SFC is both unique and rewarding and is open to all service volunteers from any part of the Regular Armed Forces (RN, RM, Army and RAF) as well as Army Reservist candidates. The tempo of operations is high but so are the rewards, as service with Special Forces offers a clear enhancement to a soldier’s career profile.

Operations of an SF nature require men and women of courage and high morale who are self-disciplined, intelligent, reliable, determined and physically fit, and who possess mental, moral and physical stamina.
