I'm about to start sandhurst, but Iâm unsure of which part of the army to join. I would like to potentially work for an aid agency after my army career, would any particular part of the army be suitable for this work. I understand Logistics could be a good one. Any advice?
It would have to be one of the corps. The problem with being an officer in a corps is often you are not qualified to do the job your troops do, and if you want to work in an aid agency in any meaningful capacity the experience you need will only come after you become a capt or above.
You could try logistics, or a the engineers. The medics generally require their officers to be prior triained (it saves the taxpayer money that way). Are you trained\qualified in anything useful or did you do a media studies course?
I cant believe youve even dared to use AAC and RLC in the same sentance! They are as comparable as a commoner on benifits who sniffs glue and speaks with a regional accent and an officer in a logistics corps!
Why per chance are you thinking about the AAC to further your civvy career? I wouldnt think it was a logical choice in the line of work you are interested in, unless of course you have an ATPL in your pocket.
Did you pass or fail grading? If its the latter, the chances of getting a commision as DE on the ground is as good as waking up next to Kylie and her asking for a bit of dry **** prior to her blowing your legs up.
