Army hosting recruitment events

THE army has launched a new nationwide recruitment campaign, with hundreds of different roles and thousands of jobs available now in the regular army and the reserves.

Recruitment events are to be held in Salisbury where members of the public can meet serving troops on Wednesday evenings at the Army Reserve Centre on Portway, Salisbury from 7.30pm to 9pm.

There are also a range of other regional events being held.

Research carried out by OnePoll has revealed that people throughout the UK primarily think the army only involves combat roles.

Only half know that a career in fitness, construction, HR or IT could be pursued within the army.

Major General Chris Tickell, director general of the Army Recruiting and Training Division, said: “The army is restructuring to ensure regular and reserve soldiers are fully integrated into one force, training and working alongside each other.

"This campaign reflects that and will kick start our 2014 activity to recruit new full-time soldiers and increase the trained strength of part time soldiers. We hope to do this by challenging public perceptions that the army purely consists of frontline combat roles. We want to show potential recruits who are perhaps thinking about how they can improve their careers and lives that there is much more to the army than meets the eye.”
