unstar this property answer text <p>No Army recruitment offices have been closed in the UK or Scotland in the last 12 months. There are currently 74 recruiting offices in the UK, of which five are in Scotland. A trial is currently being conducted into the deployment of mobile careers centres at locations throughout the UK, including Scotland.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst physical recruitment offices do have a role to play, research shows that today's target audience is twice as likely to look online for career guidance and advice. Given the improved digital access and contact that we now provide, a number of Army recruiting offices were closed in 2012 and 2013. However, there remains a recruiting office within a reasonable travelling distance of over 90% of the target population.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <br /><p>Under the deployment plan the Ministry of Defence and police have identified a range of security tasks that the military will undertake in order to release police firearms officers to respond to a major counter-terrorism (CT) incident. A proportion of these are in Scotland although we do not reveal the specific numbers of personnel involved for reasons of operational security.</p><p>The plan also allows us to generate a far more significant surge of military personnel to deploy in response to a major CT incident. These personnel deploy across the UK, including in Scotland. Military units have a responsibility for this task on a rolling basis, including the 9,810 personnel based in Scotland.</p> more like this
