Army recruitment drive launched in Sheffield

Have your say

A recruitment drive has been launched for troops to join the regular Army and the reserves.

Those interested can meet serving troops every Tuesday from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at the Army Reserve drill nights at Bailey Barracks, Greenhill Parkway.

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.”
