Women in Our Army

A Look into an Army Career for Women

Think that an Army Career is only for men? Think again.

Here in Our Army, you will find equal opportunities to grow and excel. Thousands of female Officers, Warrant Officers and Military Experts who have served or are currently serving with us can attest to that. And you will discover that you can fit right in our organisation too.

You will bring with you unique skill sets and perspectives, and contribute in ways that only you could. In return, you will reap once-in-a-lifetime experiences and rewards that come with a career like no other.

Defending our nation is never just a man’s job. And if you have the passion to lead and strengthen our cause, we invite you to a fulfilling and promising career with us.

OUR ARMY CAREERS

No matter if you’re joining us as an Officer, Warrant Officer or Military Expert, you will receive ample opportunities to acquire new skills and experience, and be primed to go far in your career with us. Each career path is unique, just as you are. Read on to find out which one suits you best.

  • Officers

    Officers are the talented leaders at the forefront of strategic and operational planning that continues to give our 3rd Generation Army its cutting edge. Besides the vast educational, leadership and personal developmental opportunities, Officers enjoy a compact, fast-paced and challenging career with complete control of their future progression.

  • Warrant Officers

    With expertise in small-unit leadership and tactical warfighting, Warrant Officers are the trainers and mentors of the skills, knowledge and values necessary for maintaining a professional operational force. Befitting leaders of their stature, they are able to advance their expertise through regular professional training as well as academic upgrading.

  • Military Experts

    Military Experts are groomed for deep specialisation in engineering, nursing, intelligence and other key domains. Armed with advanced technology and expert knowledge, they are established as leaders in their specialised fields. Military Experts enjoy a career that recognises and rewards peak performance with opportunities for professional and personal upgrading.

Our Army strongly encourages our people to constantly upgrade themselves professionally and academically. That’s why we offer a suite of scholarships and study awards that support our servicemen and women in their pursuit of greater knowledge.

Find out more about our Sponsorships & Scholarships.

On top of these, we have a robust Continuous Learning Academic Study Scheme (CLASS) framework for awarded personnel to continue their education at local universities, polytechnics or ITE colleges.
