British Army Launches Controversial Recruitment Campaign

A british army soldier, one of thousands you may lose out to the proposed recruitment driveThe british army has today announced a controversial recruitment campaign with aims of recruiting 10,000 young british men and women whilst on the other hand laying off 5,300 serving soldiers. Army officials have admitted that the act of hiring whilst firing will definitely be seen as controversial but they insist the forces must be balanced and replenished with some fresh blood.

A decrease in numbers by 2020

Figures predict that by 2020 the British Armed Forces will  be down from a figure of 100,000 to 82,000. Brigadier Andrew Jackson, Director of Recruiting and Training, said: “No matter what it’s size the Army is always recruiting to ensure we have enough quality junior ranks and young officers to sustain the organisation and keep it ready for the challenges of the future.” [source]

Journey of a soldier

A new TV advert has been released alongside the campaign, the ad shows the different paths a british soldier could take along their journey in the armed forces.

It is understood that the redundancies are due to be issued on 18 June 2013 and they dispersed amongst personnel from across all ranks, not just senior staff.
