The Armed Forces are on a major recruitment drive in Northern Ireland.

In the Irish regiments alone there are 200 full-time posts waiting to be filled with the Irish Guards, Queens Royal Hussars, Royal Dragoon Guards and Royal Irish Regiment.

And the hunt is being stepped up to fill the growing Reserves footprint in Northern Ireland, with up to 1,000 posts in the Army Reserves at all ranks waiting to be filled.

To help fill the vacancies, the Armed Forces are staging a huge jobs fair at the King’s Hall, Belfast on August 30 and 31.
