I have recently joined one of the Army recruiting teams. When i joined them they they had only just been moved from there previous location after having been given 4 days notice to pack up and leave a location they had been based at for years. Because of this, i have never been taken online onto JPA by the previous unit that administered the team and so am still on my previous units JPA. The base we have moved to now will not administer me as a new assignment order has not been sent from the people who were meant to take me on. The result of this is that i cannot make any claims, of which i have plenty from working in london daily and having to purchase my own food(which is not cheap in London). This is the same for the rest of my colleagues. I have been told many a time that it is in the 'pipeline' but the amount of money that i am having to spend to look after myself daily is stacking up with no date for a solution. We are also entitled to Home to duty travel due to the fact that because of the very rapid move from one place to another we have been accomodated like travellers within the skankiest accomodation i have had the pleasure of staying at in Aldershot(which is a whole other topic!). And so we have to travel daily to our place of work some 11 miles away, before heading to our tasks within london. Does anyone know how our pay issues can be resolved? Is there any other claims we may be entitled too? We live in aldershot but work most days inside the M25, where we purchase our daily food, surely we must be entitled to our Â£5 daily london pay? Or is that just the decision makers living in london in there nice pads? I know from talking to people within some of the corps Recruiting teams that they have claimed there Â£1000 clothing allowance so to purchase uniform civilian clothing to advertise there corps. The people i work with tell me that our main person in charge does not want us to claim this allowance. Once again, he will be ok as he will already have claimed his i suppose. Recruiting is supposed to be the second highest priority of the armed forces after operations. So why are the people who are doing this task being treated like absolute rubbish? The 3 main things that will affect an soldiers morale and ability to do his job well are, Pay, food and accomodation and presently we are lacking all 3. Some help please!
