SAS recruiting sheilas

The SAS wants to recruit its first woman trooper.

Tough, super fit, female and keen to fight alongside Willie Apiata?

New Zealand’s first woman SAS soldier could be serving in the world’s troublespots within 18 months under new fast-track recruitment.

The elite unit announced yesterday that new recruits can now apply directly. Previously, aspirants had to spend several years in the navy, army or air force first.

Recruiters also want to attract the force’s first female member. To date no women have passed the gruelling selection process.

Director of army recruiting Major Helen Horn said applicants would still have to join the army and indicate what trades they were interested in, but they could also opt for specialisation in the SAS.

“We haven’t had any women passing selection yet. But we are really keen to get women through,” she said.

” There are no barriers at all to that. So long as women meet the selection criteria, we are keen to see them in the SAS.

“But there is time and training in which people can build up to meet that. If people are determined and want it, then there is potential there.”

An ideal candidate for the unit was “smart, very determined, very resilient, obviously fit, motivated to serve New Zealand and who are very open to learning”, she said.

There will be no whining about pay equity from these folks. There is a test, if you pass it, and few do, then your aren’t in the SAS, simple.

    utter bs. standards will be changed.

    will they be striped naked and mocked during interogation?

    the army is a backward, officer orientated organisation. trainig is of ww2 and vietnam era tactics. specialist skills are taught once and never mainained…

    what they need to bolster the SAS is a specialist infantry/regular force, unit that does the required fitness training to provide more than enough ability to pass selection. To provide all the basic training and enough specialist training to pass a refined cycle.

    it all comes down to training, the army doesnt do enough, its hard work and it costs money.

    btw, why would a woman want to be an SAS soldier.. they are smarter than that??
