General Sir Nick Carter, Chief of the General Staff, has revealed his latest direction for the British Army - which he is calling “maximising talent”.
The head of the Army discussed the details at a Women in Defence UK conference, at which he explained how he wants the organisation to become more diverse and inclusive.
General Carter spoke about the changing character of conflict and the important role women play in the Armed Forces.
He said it's his intention, during his time at the top, to steer the Army to becoming a “modern, forward-looking employer, which will have no difficulty in recruiting from the broadest-possible talent base”.
