Cadets jobs in Kenya are advertised annually. They are recruited to join KDF,GSU and the Police for senior roles.

Joining the disciplined force as a cadet requires the following minimum qualifications:

Candidates wishing to join the Kenyan Defence Forces as GSO Cadets must apply through responding to advertisements placed in the mass media (print and electronic). The candidates must:

(1) Be Kenyan citizens
(2) Be aged between 18 and 26 years
(3) Not be less than 5 ft 3 in. (5’3”) high
(4) Weigh at least:
(a) Men – 54.55 Kg (120 lb)
(b) Women – 50 Kg (110 lb)
(5) Be medically fit
(6) Not have a criminal record
(7) Be in possession of a valid National Identity Card
(8) Hold a mean Grade B (Plain) certificate or higher standard of education. Preference to be given to graduates.
(9) Female candidates must NOT be pregnant.

The Army, Air Force and Navy will subject their candidates to their respective “Special to Services” selection interviews.

Any graduate candidate who opts to join the Defence Forces as a GSO will lose all the benefits accorded to a Specialist Officer and will have to fulfill all conditions laid down for a GSO.

Specialist Cadets minimum qualifications

Candidates will be selected from suitable qualified civilians through application for the advertised vacancies and appear before a Defence Forces Commissioning Board. They will be commissioned into the Defence Forces as “Direct Entry” officers.

The following will be observed:
(1) Age Between 18 and 30 years old.
(2) Education – A minimum of mean grade B (Plain) in KCSE and an undergraduate degree from a recognised University/Institution.
(3) Experience – Minimum of two (2) years’ working experience.
(4) Registration – Must be registered with the relevant statutory body, where applicable.

Unlike servicemen/women who are only required to produce a high school certificate with as low as D plain, cadets are recruited with slightly high qualifications. From above summary, you will notice that a B plain in KCSE is the minimum qualification for cadet jobs. Kenya Police Service Cadets
