Army launches recruitment drive weeks before thousands are due to be laid off

The Army has launched a recruitment drive to help find 10,000 personnel just weeks before thousands are due to be laid off.

It is hoping to draw new staff with a television campaign as part of an overhaul of the recruitment process which will see positions advertised in job centres.

The move comes ahead of the single biggest round of armed forces job losses under the coalition which could see in the region of 5,300 redundancies on June 18.
