New Armyjobs website - a hindrance to recruiting?

This has been raised on the TA Forum here but as it has been launched under the 'One Army' branding and there is apparently a press release on Mod oracle about it I thought it was appropriate for here.

Main issues with it include:

Over engineered and a lack of clear paths making it difficult to find the information you need.

Whatever you enter as your age/interests etc, it tells you you should be a para. i.e. the very point of the website, to give a tailored possible career choice, is negated by bad implementation.

From a TA point of view there are no links to TA websites, therefore no chance to get more information without sending in details for a DVD

There is no way for a potential TA soldier to see which units are close to him

All job specs (where they are complete - some stop mid sentence) are written from a regular army point of view. i.e. stating that one needs to undertake 26 weeks of training etc

Thoughts, comments or defences of this shambles welcomed!

Well that is poor. I put my profile in (having turned the clock back a bit) and was given 67 possible roles, many which seemed almost random.

No doubt a good idea on paper but further development required
