ForceSelect, the UK’s leading ex-military recruitment consultancy, is celebrating its first birthday this week while Brigadier Richard Dennis OBE, the British Army’s Director of Infantry, has joined the board of the organisation.

ForceSelect are holding an Army Briefing to Business Day at Brigadier Dennis’s base, the HQ Infantry Land Warfare Centre in Warminster, Wiltshire, with companies such as First Group, UPS, Red Lion Foods and Deloitte who will learn about the value military service leavers can bring to their businesses.

The guests will also get a chance to get a feel for the Infantry’s current weapons and vehicles and have tea in the Officers’ Mess.

Brigadier Dennis is also hosting an Afghanistan Training Experience where four teams will take part in competitions including shooting, Counter-IED clearance and night time infiltration exercises. ForceSelect Director Andy McNab will be leading one of the other teams.

The participating teams successfully bid to take part at the ForceSelect Foundation’s annual fundraising dinner at the Chiswell Street Brewery in December, which raised substantial funds for smaller military service charities in the UK.
