Amman, Dec. 28 (Petra)-- German defence chiefs are considering recruiting from other EU countries to fill a chronic shortage of skilled workers in the armed forces.
Eberhard Zorn, the army general inspector, said in an interview the armed forces had little choice but to look beyond Germany for new recruits.
"We're talking here about doctors or IT specialists," Zorn told the Funke newspaper group, calling the idea to search for such workers beyond Germany "an option" among several being considered as the army "pushes hard for a suitable new generation".
He said at a time of a general skilled worker shortage the armed forces had to look in every direction to find suitable newcomers.
