Candidates compete for Armed Forces

In 2021, the Spanish Ministry of Defence called 51 selection processes, with a global offer of 9,742 places. Of these, 1,920 were for career and complement military personnel, 6,500 to the ranks of troops and sailors, and 1,072 for permanent status. There are also plans for 250 places for volunteer reservists.

The processes are being developed according to established programming and according to the prevention and protection protocols against Covid-19 prepared by the General Health Inspection, the government said.

More than 43,000 candidates this year have chosen to participate in the different selection processes called, 7.5 per cent more than the previous year. Women account for 19 per cent of all applications, an increase of 2 per cent compared with 2020.
