Movement Controller



Travel. Train. Think on your feet. As a Movement Controller in the Royal Logistic Corps (RLC), your job is to direct and control people and vehicles usually at ports, airfields and railway terminals worldwide. As part of the RLC, you’ll get the right kit to the right people, in the right place, and at the right time. Without you and your team, the Army couldn’t function. Whether you’re helping troops, vehicles and supplies move swiftly and safely, or giving teams all they need to complete operations successfully, you’ll be organised and good with people – including more senior soldiers and officers. It’s your chance to reach heights you never knew existed and learn vital skills that’ll set you up for life. Get ready to do something that really matters.

If you want to feel part of a close-knit team, the RLC is for you. Although it’s the biggest Corps in the British Army – with more regiments than any other – there’s a real family feel, as well as pride in a job well done. As well as the opportunity to travel and to learn new skills such as admin procedures, using radio equipment and navigating specialist computer systems, you’ll meet some of your best mates and make memories you’ll never forget. You’ll travel together, learn together and by working together, you’ll make things possible for troops on operation – ensuring they have everything they need in the time they need it for.

Find where you belong.


Join us and you’ll start by learning the soldiering skills common to every member of the British Army, like outdoor survival and the safe handling of weapons. After this, you have a seven-week course at RAF Brize Norton to learn your trade. You’ll be supervised by experienced staff and trained to monitor transport, put movement plans into action and enforce regulations.
