Army in the hunt for 10,000 new soldiers

Have your say

Britain’s Army boots will hit the ground in Sheffield as part of a nationwide campaign to recruit 10,000 soldiers over the coming year.

Forces representatives will be holding sessions at JobCentre Plus offices in Sheffield on Wednesday and Friday next week.

Potential recruits will be able to find out more information about the range and variety of jobs available in the Army, as well as having the opportunity to meet and talk to serving soldiers.

Brigadier Andrew Jackson, director of recruiting and training for the Army, said: “We are always looking for talented, young people to take up the challenge of a career in the Army.

“No matter what your skills or background, we have something to offer you and an Army job provides opportunities to learn much more beyond military skills.

“It will develop you and show you the strengths you didn’t know you had.

“Statistics show one in five people would consider joining the Army, so we need to encourage those individuals to come forward and find out more about joining us.”
