Advice please

I've just completed 12yrs service and am currently employed as a SSgt (Supvr R) within the Royal Corps of Signals. Obviously I've had a decent run at things but with the roster being extremely competitive and bloody hard work, I'm thinking of 'jumping ship'. I fancy something a little less taxing and if I am honest, a bit more of a sedentary existence as a SNCO. Crucially though, I still fancy a role which will give me the best chance of promotion all the way through. I've looked at the AGC but I reckon the Int Corps is the way to go - Have any of you guys any advice?

Cheers

Suggest that if you are a bloke then grow some balls and compete. If you are female then start sucking dick - you will do alright in either the Sigs or AGC then.

You cannot be employed as a Spare Cock/Radio Supervisor, because neither trade actually has a job. The Radio Supervisor trade is not competitive, it is run by the Mafia; if you are one of them you will get ahead, if you are not you probably wouldn't even get to SSgt.

Big fat windup, methinks. :wink:

Awww C'mon Fraser, everytime I go away I end up managing loads of you guys and I actually quite enjoy it, I'm just thinking now of whether or not to make the jump across. I have a few half decent qualifications and keep myself fairly fit - I like the thought that I'd probably be able to stand out quite well without having to push myself right over the edge.

You lot couldn't manage a wet fart. Waaaaah-a-rama this one. Come out CR, you've already signalled your intention to liven things up on another thread. Past experience led me to believe that you'd be a bit more inventive.

Even so, looks like Hibs-Cunt jumped right in there as usual, so at least you got one brainless wanquer with it.

Leave the army and find an admin post in local government. You will be very happy and surrounded by people very much like yourself.
Wrong! As a Spvr R, You should transfer over immediately, fill a "gash" slot in JSyCC, gets lots of security training at HMG expense, for the last 10% of your service. With that CV simply transition to civilian life on twice your current salary.

After all computer defence and exploitation is not real MI work is it?

There's my taxi, just pass my Windstopper TM fleece over will you?

(RCMOs: who needs 'em??)

i think it is actually a more subtle windup than the usual attempts. gentle digs, less obvious. almost admirably crafted. but i think its still a windup nonetheless.

i have an idea who it might be... somebody who already has more than one ID... :)

It has all the right selectors for a windup. The suggestion of an easy life in the Int Corps, jibes about promotion, offering the AGC as an alternative to the Int Corps and pretending to be a universally-hated Radio Supervisor is bound to set people off. :wink:

All of which makes the wind up theory all the more obvious. If I may deconstruct....

1. Easy life in the Int Corps? As opposed to what? That tough one they have in the Signals?

2. Jibes about promotion? What? Getting your staffy after a 3 month drinking course?

3. Offering AGC as an alternative to Int Corps? Why? Cos the hat is nearly the same colour? Bland and unimaginative at best, downright transparent at worst.

4. Pretending to be a radio supervisor? Smacks of insanity to me if it isn't meant as a wah

And just for CR, I've put in the SD double spaces. Now bore off!

:wink:

Looking at this a bit more closely the guy's choice of words and, of course, the not-so-subtle undertones point to it being a bit of a wind up.

Thing is, there were a few Supvr Rs a couple of years ago who were not unimpressed at the duty rumour about the Supvr R Roster being absorbed into the Int Corps along with the rest of the Spec Op trade. One particular guy was wringing his hands with glee at the prospect, before he joined the Supe mafia.*

In fact several Spec Ops have re-badged to Int Corps in the last few years.

* He's now a Capt (Tfc Offr (R)) and would not like to be reminded of his earlier career aspirations.
