US, UK to work together on recruiting efforts

FORT KNOX, Ky. -- The United States and the United Kingdom have agreed to work together on sharing, developing and perfecting recruiting strategies, as the two countries often face similar challenges in recruiting new Soldiers.

Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Snow, who leads the U.S. Army's recruiting effort, and Maj. Gen. Christopher Tickell, commander of the British Army's Recruiting and Training Division, signed a memorandum of understanding here Aug. 22 to form a new Recruiting Partnership Initiative.

Citing the historically positive relationship between the two armies, Snow said he is excited to work with the United Kingdom concerning this matter.

"We just spent the last couple of hours talking about the partnership and what we might be able to learn from that, and I do think we can learn from each other," Snow said.

Tickell said this partnership is an opportunity for the two organizations to take advantage of the commonalities between their recruiting efforts.

"When [Maj. Gen. Batschelet] came to the UK 18 months ago, it was just blindingly obvious how much we have in common, where the touch points are, and where we can [work together]," Tickell said. "Working alongside your great nation is an honor and a privilege. This is a small example of how special this relationship is."

Both countries face the same kinds of medical, educational, economic and misconduct challenges in finding the best qualified individuals for an all-volunteer force.

Leaders from the two commands will meet annually, and research teams - comprised of Soldiers, civilians and contractors from each country - will visit the other every other year for two-week observations to gather information on policy, process, market research, marketing and advertising, selection, and information technology initiatives, and to make recommendations for further research and development.
