For potential recruits making (early) new years resolutions, the 4 PARA recruiting offices are now closed for the Christmas break and will return on 3rd Jan. The Facebook page will be manned over the break on an ad hoc basis if required.
As a reminder to all, 4 PARA is a national unit based at the below and we are recruiting for a wide variety of trades.

The resistance is rarely from 4 PARA or P Coy - the courses are running, and it is a reasonable recruitment tool. You will however need to have a much better justification that "I just fancy seeing how difficult it is".Is it possible for a soldier from another unit to undertake P-Coy, possibly with the intention of attachment (or even just to see if they can still pass it?)
Go 2 Royal Irish initially and transfer over to 4 Para.Hello,
I'll be moving over to Scotland next year, so I was just thinking on joining up now while I'm in education. Would there be a problem if I do join up now from Ireland?. I haven't called up yet, going to call up next week in the N.I AFCO.
I want to be a officer, but need to go through the training until I reach that goal.
Thanks for all the replies.
Good to hear!Hey I saw some your lads training in Catterick at the weekend. Looked like those guys are worked hard, but was nice to see a few smiles too. How long does it take from getting your recruits up to P-Coy level?
Good on Tootal. Lots of stairs to run up and down there...Article in the Sunday Newspapers (Times or Mail) had an article about Barclay Bank taking over recruit training - based at Canerey Wharf
As per a paper put forward to the MoD by the Head of Global Securities at Barclays
