What Army Jobs are available in Iraq and Afghanistan?

By Susan - Wednesday 25 Mar 1:00 am

Serving in army jobs in Iraq and Afghanistan require a high level of commitment, bravery and strength of will. Not only is it possible that you will be separated from your family, but you will be stationed in unfamiliar territory with the impending possibility of full combat on your doorstep. All soldiers are trained towards this element of Military Life no matter what army jobs they are involved in, but few get to experience the reality in its harsh and terrifying appeal.

There are hundreds of army jobs available in Iraq and Afghanistan ranging from full time to part time and including contract work. Contract work can be anything from a few weeks to months or even years, depending on the position being offered. By signing up with a recruitment agency you will be able to gain access to a wide range of army jobs from all different departments and divisions. Here are a few examples:

  • Intelligence Officers, Specialists and Analysts: The duties held by soldiers carrying out these army jobs are mainly gathering information about the enemy, such as whereabouts, fight tactics, how large their divisions are etc. It is vital that all information collected is correct and precise, as it could result in the difference between life and death for US Soldiers.
  • Technicians and Engineers: As much as technicians and engineers are needed on home turf for optimal operation of equipment and technical equipment, so too are they needed for army jobs abroad in Iraq and Afghanistan. Without the correct operation of equipment, US soldiers would be made extremely vulnerable.
  • Medics: Especially if US soldiers are sent into battle, the need for Medics to fill army jobs of this nature will be ever increasing. Even for everyday circumstances like illness or disease or whatever sort. It is imperative that all recruits are kept fit and healthy.
  • Automotive Technicians: Ensuring that all vehicles are kept running economically as well as efficiently, automotive technicians and mechanics are extremely sought after. Army jobs in this domain are freely available.
  • Interpreters: Dealing with foreign languages can become difficult and prevent progress, without the services of experienced and well learned interpreters.
  • Military Fielding Coordinators: The coordination of activities and schedules along all lines of army jobs is essential for the smooth operation of all programs. This job would suit someone who is well organised and good at getting other people organised!
  • Budget Analysts: Living and working in a foreign country can often prevent you from having access to all your normal amenities, resulting in unnecessary or increasing expenditure. There is also a certain allocated amount for each operation. Budget analyst army jobs are there to ensure that everything is kept within these boundaries and allocations, and that no overspending occurs above and beyond those marks.

Whatever your qualifications or skills, there is more than likely going to be a range of army jobs in Iraq and Afghanistan to suit you. As much as smooth operation of business needs to take place here in America, so too does it need to occur in this way abroad. The need for optimal operation is even more in demand in Iraq and Afghanistan, as the risk of battle is so much higher there. Army jobs in Iraq and Afghanistan are readily available in almost any field.
