Cumbernauld’s Territorial Army unit, the 124 Field Squadron, 71 Engineer Regiment, Royal Engineers, will be holding a recruitment event this weekend.

The TA unit is reaching out to prospective new recruits as the event, which takes place on Saturday and Sunday, August 24 and 25, between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., will showcase the employment opportunities with the Territorial Army.

The open day is part of an extensive recruitment campaign, TA LIVE, which launched in February. The campaign is promoting the TA over the next 12 months through a range of activities and events where potential recruits can find out more about the TA and talk to TA soldiers. The nationwide drive is designed to expand the Territorial Army to 30,000 soldiers by 2018.

A huge range of TA careers have also been represented across the country. 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 TA.

Brigadier Andrew Jackson, director of recruiting and training for the Army said: “We are always looking for talented people to take up the challenge of a career in the Army.”
