Aylesbury’s Territorial Army will hold an open evening every Tuesday this month to attract new recruits.

Aylesbury’s E Coy 7 Rifles will be holding the open events at Viney House from 7.30pm to 9.30pm to show the employment opportunities available.

The open evening is part of an extensive recruitment campaign, TA LIVE, which launched in February. The drive is designed to expand the Territorial Army to 30,000 soldiers by 2018.

Chefs, drivers, medics, caterers, infantrymen, engineers, signallers and many more have come together to demonstrate that there are over different 200 roles available for people interested in joining the Territorial Army.

Director of recruiting and training, Brigadier Andrew Jackson, said: “We are always looking for talented people to take up the challenge of a career in the Army. No matter what your skills or background, the Army has something to offer you and an Army job provides opportunities to learn much more beyond military skills.

“It will develop you and show you the strengths you didn’t know you had. These statistics show that one in five people would consider joining the Army so we need to encourage those individuals to come forward and find out more about joining us.

“No matter what its size, the Army is always recruiting to ensure we have enough quality junior ranks and officers to sustain the organisation and keep it ready for the challenges of the future.

“We pride ourselves on recruiting individuals who demonstrate talent and promise, and then provide them with all the training and development opportunities they need. Today is about helping people in Aylesbury take the first step toward a successful career in the Army, and beyond.”
