Army pulls out of Ulster jobs fair due to lack of interest

The Army has pulled its stand from the University of Ulster’s Magee campus careers fair because of lack of interest.

The Army has confirmed the reasons behind its no-show at this month’s autumn careers event at the Londonderry campus. The pull-out has been welcomed by republican students at the university.

A spokesman for the British Army told the Belfast Telegraph: “The Armed Forces prides itself on the opportunities and scope for self improvement that a career in the military can offer to young people no matter what their background.

“However it was decided that due to finite resources and a poor response to previous careers days at Magee College that this year no recruiting team would attend.”
