6.5K to rejoin the AGC

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just thought I would let people know that if they were considering re-joining the Army there is a nice incentive for those who choose the AGC.

    Can I get it retrospectively?
     
  3. I wouldn't do it for 65k never mind six and a half.
     
  4. I think the Corps will survive nonetheless......
     
  5. So can I quit tomorrow, and come back next week with £6.5k in my purse? Great - where do I sign?
     
  6. Nah, I am too old but thanks for the offer.
     
  7. If it gets the people who signed off back in then its a good thing, but I feel that it was the working conditions that people got out for and not the money. Times are changing in the AGC and I imagine not for the good.
     
  8. Are you talking about the money or something else, and anyway who taught you to spell long words.
     
  9. Have you met B_AND_T? Trust me, the money is the only thing he's likely to get. Retrospectively or otherwise...

    My bold: True enough - we'll see how recruiting and retention react to the Higher Band pay. I'll wager that those of use who planned to stick it out are laughing, but it won't make a jot of difference to the rest. Being a clerk/HR Admin/Combat HR Specialist or whatever we're called this week, is just not exciting stuff. Very few people would join the Army to sit behind a desk - even fewer would make it a full career choice. Golden handshakes are all fine and dandy, but they don't address the Corps' core problems.
     
  10. Can I have just some of it if I transfer in?
     
  11. Yes, you can - £1500 transfer bonus to be an HR Admin for the next few weeks then you can join the rest of us to be Combat Human Resources Specialists.

    Doesn't that sound really exciting :D
     
  12. Legs - my bold, i see this as one of the main problems, i tfr'd in in '96 from a job where my long term prospect was dull as a dull thing. However the SPS has turned out to be, different place, same Sh!te. Lots of people work as long and hard as us, problem is that we complain the most because of lack of satisfaction, variety, excitement etc...
