THE Army is targeting Huddersfield students in its latest recruiting drive.
And the focus will be on those receiving their A-level and GCSE results and wondering what to do next.
Although some students will have mapped out their future and know exactly what career they want, others will be wondering what steps to take to get on to the career ladder.
Warrant Officer Paul Banks, from the Army Careers Information Office in Kirkgate, Huddersfield, said training available with the Army led to 140 different career choices for school-leavers.
"Every year, thousands of school-leavers choose to follow a career in the Army after receiving their GCSE and A-level results," he added.
"For many, the chance to earn a starting wage which is often higher than they'd receive with other school-leaving apprenticeships or training schemes, combined with worldwide travel opportunities, excellent training and a unique way of life with one of the UK's biggest employers, is too good to miss.
"The Army has over 96,000 soldiers and another 10,000 in training. There are 15,000 vacancies for 16 to 24 year olds and it is becoming a career of first choice among many youngsters in Huddersfield."
Lt-Col John May, commander of recruiting for the North-East and Yorkshire, said: "The Army offers far more than basic training. It provides high-quality vocational, academic and personal training as part of the career package."
