After all the cuts revealed by the ConDem goverment this afternoon, I am curious if anyone has an idea how this is going to effect recruiting within the Army. As I understand it, there is going to be 7000 job losses within the Army alone, with a further 10000 in the Navy and RAF. Is it possible that those who are unfortunate enough to be loosing their jobs will be instead re-located into another job, thus soaking up job opportunities for the potential recruit? Another point to be made as far as recruiting goes, is the Germany withdrawal. I've no idea what number of troops are based in Germany at the moment, but it stands to reason that with the loss of positions in Germany, there will be less need for new recruits elsewhere within the Army for those same jobs.
