Britain’s Army boots will hit the ground in Louth as part of a nationwide new Step Up recruitment campaign designed to bring 10,000 soldiers into the Army over the coming year.
As part of the campaign, people are being invited to attend one of a number of recruitment events running throughout Lincolnshire over the next month including finding out more at one of the Jobcentre Plus clinics taking place in Louth from Thursday, June 6.
The Jobcentre Plus clinics will provide potential recruits in Louth with more information about the range and variety of jobs available in the Army as well as a unique opportunity to meet and talk to young serving soldiers about what the Army can offer.
Lincolnshire’s events are part of a nationwide campaign to dispel the misconception that the Army is not hiring as new statistics reveal that only half of all people surveyed realised that the Army is looking for new recruits. The survey also revealed that knowing the Army is recruiting would make 14% of people in the East Midlands think about it as a career.
Army jobs will now be advertised in job centres, and applicants will be able to apply online from anywhere in the UK.
The vast majority of the application process is now done online. All applications are administered through the dedicated National Recruiting Centre, where a mentor is assigned to each applicant to guide him or her through the process of joining the Regular Army or the Reserves.
