Soldiers from the British Army will be on-hand to showcase what a role in the Army could look like for would-be soldiers from Telford. There will be a series of interactive activities to get involved with and some of the latest kit and equipment on display.

Visitors can look forward to a warm welcome from one of the serving soldiers, an opportunity to spend time discussing the recruitment and selection process and take away up-to-date information. Soldiers will also be on hand to advise about the recent pay review, where a private soldier can now expect to receive an annual salary of £20,000+ after basic training.

For those who are interested in taking the first step, the teams in the local community will have the ability to help you with a new or existing application and advise you on how to prepare for your future career.

Major John Parkes, who serves with the Royal Logistic Corps said:

"This project is an opportunity to reconnect with local communities to inform people of all ages about the opportunities, benefits and range of roles available within the British Army.

The British Army is a truly inclusive employer which takes pride in developing the inner potential of every soldier/officer.

I look forward to speaking to members of the public within the Telford area about how 'Your Army Needs You' and how the British Army can provide a career which is second to none"

The British Army supports people in achieving their personal and professional goals, whether it’s conquering a pull up or taking on a leadership role. The Army is recruiting and there is a breadth of roles and opportunities available in both the Regular Army and Army Reserve, from helicopter pilot to nurse, from engineer to IT specialist.

You can go sky-diving or skiing abroad as part of adventure training and gain further qualifications such as an apprenticeship or a degree. As part of life in the British Army, lifelong friendship bonds are formed and incredible challenges are overcome to achieve worthwhile results, for example saving lives by providing assistance on humanitarian or peacekeeping missions at home or abroad.
