The Army is working in partnership with Capita to deliver the recruitment of both Regular and Army Reserve personnel. Under the 10-year contract with Capita to deliver whole-Army recruiting, annual payments will depend on the number of recruits the Army is likely to require. For the current year the Capita cost of recruiting is likely to be around £50 million. This arrangement is expected to deliver enhancements to the recruiting process as well as freeing up personnel, over time, back to the armed forces.
