AGC(SPS) New Job Title: Combat Human Resourses Specialist

#2
Don't see what was wrong with "Clerk" myself.

Surely HR Specialist or something would be fine. Why the need for "combat"? Just seems like the hierarchy are opening you up for ribbings! :lol:

It is supposed to be more attractive to potential recruits. I believe the Medics did this when they changed their title to Cbt Med Tech and it increased recruiting significantly.

I suppose anything is worth a go!

Combat Special Services Delivery Operative anyone?

P-T
 
#5
Fine but ditch the "combat" in anything but a COMBAT trade (ie Inf, Tankies, Engr support ie people up front) this just looks chad.

Combat? What the hell is "combat" about it? Why not go the whole hog and say "Combat Assault HR Ninja".

I reckon HR Specialist is probably a good thing. No one is a plain garden-variety "administrator" any more are they? Even the photocopier bloke is now a "reproduction services manager" or other corporate-talk BS.

Serious question - if one of the Corps' roles is Information Administration (iAdmin) and running the iHub, then should "information" also be in the title. Surely the job isn't just HR. Or is there a cunning plan for IM-type people?

Combat HR and Information Specialist. CHRIS. It would be funny for a couple of days!

How about "Vaguely Military Orientated HR Monitor* and Staff Bitch"

*JPA boy and girls, we do our own admin.

Ahem, do you really? In that case, PM me your number at work, I have got a couple of burning issues about JPA that I would love to discuss with you. I don't claim to be a JPA Ninja - I have "boys" to help me out (Cheers B&T, LJS and JT).

So my dear, carry on doing your own admin, but when your pay and leave is shagged, please feel free to break your knee and come dribbling to us without a leg to stand on* .

Sluggy xx


*See that, I managed to get a bit of humour in there. I'm not always serious.

Why don't we just civilianise our jobs and when we need to deploy, we call in the TA! No need to recruit for Regular Army, manning sorted, job done. I will always be a shiny arrse and brew bitch until the day I leave.

Why would we need to call you if we can’t remember a simple process like GYH from Germany which a soldier will only do once a year yet is expected to remember exactly how to list all the occurrences, involving airports, ferries, locations costs, times etc

That’s what those ever so helpful people at the JPAC are for 8O 8O





Isn’t it :? :wink:

You'd better get ready for civilian life, then. The new version of JPA that's to be launched at the end of the year effectively takes all HR and financial admin from unit level and puts it in Glasgow. The only unit input will be the pl comd ticking a box to certify the accuracy of an entry or to authorise it.

The only clerks who'll survive will be the staff assistants, whose job will be accounting for classified docs and IT. The navy's already turned its clerks into loggies and the crabs are shifting theirs into trades like intelligence (female handlers, for instance).

Guess we'll be ethnically cleansed into being scaleys or loggies.

Get over yourself Slug. So i missed a few keys, is that a crime? You sound like the really helpful type to those who come to you with pay issues - i am sure the younger soldiers find you really approachable.

Can't you take the comment for what it is rather than pick up slack keyboard skills?
