Anything in the Corps is pretty good- if all else fails try Theatre Tech- dull and uninspiring- but RAMC none the less.
We havve not been known as Theatre Techs for ages now its ODP.
(Minor details) :(

Dull and uninspiring ??? Maybe in an MDHU but on OPs it is far from that.

Why not be a CMT? Afterall, that's the primary trade of the RAMC, and it's what is needed at present.
Shame it's taking so long to get in though! :cry:

Roll on April. 8)

Yep, know what you mean. I'm a paramedic and ex regular (10 yrs, RGJ med section). I'm now 5 months into an application process that should take 5 days. I'm loosing the enthusiasm a bit. Afterall, if they can't be arrsed to get their admin sorted, then why should I/We be arrsed enough to sign on.

You'd think they'd have a fast ball process for those that are already qualled?

Back to the thread though.

Cross_kukri - if you're looking at jobs such as ODP, Pharm, lab tech etc, then maybe you should consider leaving the army and going NHS for your trg. Once trained, rejoin - you may even be commisionable after you qual.

But if you're going RAMC now, then go CMT. That's what the RAMC is all about afterall. All of the other bits are just add ons to the primary role of saving lives whilst under fire, of Rfn that get whacked.

CMT or NHS?

#14
Why do you want to change trades, are you really that shit-a-flaggy?
 
#16
Gynaecologist sounds pretty ok as well. :)

If you've got the quals to train get a trade (lab rat, bone photographer etc.) it'll give you more scope for a job when you leave. If not become a Coffee Making Technician the only job in the RAMC according to the Can't Manage a Trade crew.

You might find it hard getting into the CMT Trade. You have to be a man-God chiselled out of pure granite. Able to withstand the hardest knocks and the most arduous of duties without a whimper of protest or bursting into girly tears. Physically you must be at least 7'6" with a nine inch penis or, if a woman-God, 36D bust with less than 1 mm of base sag. You must be pragmatic and resourceful be able to look mean and moody one moment then filled with compassion the next. You have to be able to inspire confidence and the will to live in those horrendously injured in battle. Young boys will look at you in awe there fathers in envy. You are that giant amongst soldiers.

PS Must like camping, coffee-making not a necessity as QA's will be provided.

Really? You want to look at mingin drippy clunges all day? The ones that have fallen out? The ones that are growing fungus? The ones belonging to fat grot bags?

Once again I refer you to the mental image of separating a cheese toasty.

If they were perfect, they wouldn't need gynae.
