This Is Lancashire: Army launches recruitment drive in Bolton Army launches recruitment drive in Bolton

THE army is launching a major recruitment drive in Bolton as part of a national campaign.

Next Tuesday’s two-hour event, starting at 7.30pm, is run by Bolton’s 216 Battery, Royal Artillery, at the Bolton Army Reserve Centre in Nelson Street, Bolton.

More than 6,000 jobs, from mechanics to veterinary technicians and fitness instructors are on offer.

The public can speak to serving soldiers to get an understanding of army life and see a variety of the latest kit and equipment.

Brigadier Andrew Jackson, the director of army recruiting and training, said, “Joining the army Reserve is an exciting opportunity for anyone looking to do something extra with their time and benefit from a rewarding experience outside of normal working hours.

“These events aim to showcase the broad range of jobs and world class training and development prospects available to anyone who is interested in joining or who thinks they know someone who would want to find out more.

“No matter what your skills or background, the army reserve has something to offer you.

“There is much more beyond military skill; it can take you abroad, equip you with new skills, give you invaluable experience and develop strengths you didn’t know you had.” The Ministry of Defence will be investing an additional £1.8 billion over 10 years in the army reserve, it says, to fund better training and modern equipment.

It will also be boosting its trained staff with new incentives such as increasing pay through a paid annual leave entitlement and giving better access to welfare support and health services.

I am proud of the British Army.

I am ashamed how its been used in the last 40 years to defend political agendas rather than the British People, and the way the government has treated the veterens and wounded by cutting benefits and making them rely on charities for basic needs whilst throwing more at Countries who produce these terrorist.

Don't join, you will regret it one day,
