Army seeks re­cruits

Middlesbrough Herald & Post - - HERALD & POST -

HUN­DREDS of roles are on of­fer in the North-east with the Army Re­serves.

The Re­serves, pre­vi­ously known as the Ter­ri­to­rial Army, get in­volved in ev­ery­thing the reg­u­lar Army does – in­clud­ing com­bat, peace­keep­ing, hu­man­i­tar­ian work and work in the com­mu­nity.

They of­fer train­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties that fit around your day job, with many roles ac­com­pa­nied by a healthy pay packet.

Ma­jor Graeme Hynds, se­nior ca­reers ad­vi­sor at Mid­dles­brough Army Ca­reers Cen­tre, said: “There are over 200 va­can­cies in the North-east. There’s such a great di­ver­sity of roles – from en­gi­neer­ing to armed units to tech­ni­cal roles.

“Peo­ple can learn a role and choose one that ap­peals to them. The most im­por­tant thing is the de­sire to learn some­thing new. It’s all about their de­vel­op­ment, whether that be on a pro­fes­sional level or a tech­ni­cal level.

“There’s an age re­stric­tion of 18 in the reg­u­lar army, but you can ap­ply here at 16-and-a-half and you can be here up to the age of 50 in the Re­serves.”

Any­one who wants to ap­ply should go on­line, or visit a ca­reers of­fice or an Army Re­serves cen­tre.

“It’s a very sim­ple short form to start with,” con­tin­ued Ma­jor Hynds.

There are nine re­serve units in the North-east area and op­por­tu­ni­ties in na­tional cen­tres. For in­for­ma­tion and ap­pli­ca­tion forms, visit www.army. mod.uk/re­serve/31781.aspx
