A CAMPAIGN to attract thousands of new recruits to the British Army will target jobseekers with a series of recruitment clinics at Jobcentre Plus locations.

According to research commissioned by the British Army and carried out by One Poll, just one in twenty unemployed people said they would consider signing up to the Army, compared with one in ten employed people.

RECRUIT2The Army’s new campaign – More than Meets the Eye – aims to highlight the huge range of full-time and part-time careers available, with thousands of different roles on offer across hundreds of jobs.

Some of the jobs currently open to new recruits include bricklayers, communications specialists, logistics, drivers, IT technicians, HR specialists, veterinary technicians, musicians, environment health technicians, healthcare assistants and infantry soldiers.

Jobcentre Plus is hosting more than 100 clinics at dozens of locations across the country. People will be able to speak to serving members of the Regular Army and Army Reserve, get more information about the wide variety of roles available to new recruits and find out about the online application process.

Anyone aged 16 and over can apply for a job in the Army, or 18 for the Army Reserve, regardless of background, skills, or experience.
