MoD halts Army recruitment for six months

The
Ministry of Defence (MoD) has put a stop on Army recruitment for six months to
save money, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The
newspaper said the MoD believes army retention is above average, so the ban
will have little effect.

However,
the Adjutant General (the Army’s equivalent of an HR director), told Personnel
Today that the Army was finding it increasingly difficult to get enough people
of the right quality to be interested in joining.

“That’s
not to say it’s impossible, just increasingly difficulty,” Lieutenant General
Sir Alistair Irwin said. “We have to have a very good, very well organised,
very well focused and directed recruiting operation to bring the Army to the
attention of the population.”
