Morning one and all,

Here to learn more about the prospect of joining
The Paras as an Officer. I graduated last year and working an office based environment really isn’t flicking my switch!! Not least for the fact I’ve been working from my own kitchen table since March 2020!!
I’m a keen runner and completed the London Marathon in 2019 in sub 3 hours. Covid not withstanding, I also compete competitively with my judo club and have done since the age of 9. I was very outdoorsy as a child and spent my early teens as an Army cadet. I have also spent time with our UOTC and have close family serving.
I am aware the whole process will take between 6 to 9 months and I plan on starting the application process within the coming week.
I feel it’s the right time for me to take the plunge. Any questions just ask!
