£113 million reflects the cost of establishing the Defence Recruiting System, the candidate management system which sits behind the Capita-run recruitment website (Army Jobs). For the last Recruiting Year (April 2021 - March 2022), the Army Jobs website generated over eight million visits, with over 180,000 potential candidates registering an interest to join the Army. Without the website, registrations could not be made, nor applications submitted.
