The closure of the Army recruitment centre in Rhyl was part of a wider reduction in recruiting offices across the UK under the Recruiting Partnering Project (RPP) contract, which covers the entire recruiting and selection process for the Army. This was done to yield a number of benefits to Army recruiting, including new attraction and marketing methods, greater use of digital contact with candidates and centralised application processes. This enabled the redeployment of military recruiting staff to the front line.
