Or are you hungry for a career change? Captain Charlotte reveals why the British Army could be exactly what you're looking for...
This is a Marie Claire Advertorial
Think being a soldier is all about press-ups and testosterone? Charlotte, 27, who is a captain, proves it’s much more than that. After gaining a master’s in civil engineering and training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, Charlotte was appointed as an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Troop Commander. Now she’s a Recruiting Officer for the Royal Engineers, based in the UK. Here she reveals why she wouldn’t swap her dream job for anything else…
‘From the age of 14, I knew I wanted to join the Army. I’ve always loved sport and adventurous, outdoor activities. I had my heart set on a challenging career that would allow me to travel, and that’s exactly what I got. I’ve been to Canada, France, Germany, Gibraltar, Malta, Peru and Kenya.
‘Making a difference to people’s lives is amazing; whether that’s developing a young soldier to help them get promoted, clearing unexploded ordnance in Kenya to prevent injury to locals, or inspiring Officer cadets to join the Royal Engineers, which is my job now. No two days are the same and the career opportunities are endless.
‘Women in the Army are just like women in any other field. We like going shopping, going out partying and drinking cocktails on a Friday night. Contrary to myth, we aren’t all butch bodybuilders!
‘A fulfilling and exciting life is what makes me content.
