Sick of the lack of promotion prospects and being on low pay band? :-/ Miffed at working your arrse off for the good and benefit of all bar yourself?....The solution?....Volunteer for the digitisation posts that the Corps are currently being asked to fill then immediately transfer to The Royal Signals upon completion of the short 3 month course at Blandford. The Bleeps will then transfer your pay to the high band at the same level you are on now (worth approx £300 a month ) and they will consider you for promotion without you arranging for the RQMS to meet with a tragic accident. Even if you are approaching the end of 22 yrs...they will extend your service without question. This is not a misguided attempt to sell the Bleeps, but perhaps a method of pointing out to the policy directors of REME that loyalty will only stretch so far especially when it continues to rate its skilled Artisans along side infantry CQMS's ......I personally didnt want to leave the Corps :'( , but they eventually left me with no choice. Now I have more money, have a chance to be promoted, not expected to achieve miracles without the resources and no longer take work home. I also have no need to listen to clueless individuals who spent 18 months working out how to fit a cribb sheet onto the back of a ruler and taking credit for others effort .
