    Defence Forces recruitment.

    About 10,500 people have applied for the Defence Forces, which has about 600 positions available.

    "A spokesman for the Defence Forces has said 8,752 applied for 480 positions in the army and 1,583 applied for 120 positions in the naval service."

    Over 10,000 people apply for 600 defence forces jobs - RT News

    So much for the "lazy unemployed".

    This still a low ratio when compared with the usual application for cadet officer places which is about 30:1. Good luck to these boys and girls anyway.

    you assume all applicants are unemployed?

    You will find that most applicants are gainfully employed in the private sector or are students.

    The unemployed are not interested nor wanted in the Defence Forces

    It would be nice if RDF lads got in and some funds were allocated to help the RDF fill the empty slots.

    Many RDF have joined the PDF in the last few years and the recruitment freeze on the RDF is slowly killing it. Despite it being a function of the RDF.

    Anybody know if there is a quota for females, or if the best candidates regardless of sex are recruited?

    Officially no quota. I think the PDF come in somewhere around 5%, maybe a bit less for females. You'd usually see at least 2 in a recruit platoon/class.
