    That link says WO1 for MCGI.
  3. still wont get a job in civy street
  4. Thanks, Got it!
  5. For REME guys there is also the option for membership of the City & Guilds in Engineering Leadership and Management.....details from The REME Arms School.
  6. Prices went up 1st Oct. I know the MCGI is now £95.
  7. I've got the LCGI but I fear that it's a qualification that means sod all in civvy street if you intend using it to get a job.
  8. I received a GCGI few months ago and it is recognised outside the mob. Several companies have shown considerable interest in the qualification and it does place you well above people that don't have it. Well worth getting if you can.

    That depends, I've been approached about a job and they want me to develop and lead a team, so whilst I have oodles of technical skills/experience and qualifications, on this occasion its my leadership/mentoring and relationship building skills that they're after.

    All pure BS I know, but if it gets me the job then I really don't care.
  10. But does it recognise the difference between Leadership and Management when used in a military context?

    The two are very different and, sometimes, do not transfer between uniform and civilian attire.
  11. Gents the main criteria for any job out here is being able to demonstrate your leadership and your managment skills.

    The LGCI/GCCI etc are better than nowt and they are a question at interview you can blow people away with.

    BAE Systems are recruiting Team Leaders now, get on the site baesystems dot com or PM for an inside track if you have any tech background

    If you not tech but have FM exp and a Project Management Qual get in touch there are jobs here. pay reasonable, good benefits although personal take is the chance of promotion is limited due to dead mans shoes-but hey if you used to kill people for a living that should be easy to sort out:) apologies if that trivialises the job for htiose still in, keep your heads down fellas/girls

    Yes, I think it does - I agree entirely leadership and management are very different (but similar) - the role I have been approached for needs both. I'm not selling myself as anything special either, I think a lot of people I know and work with have good leadership and management skills - at all ranks/rates.
  13. Yes but leadership and management WITHIN the Armed Forces is a very different beast to the one in Civie street. In the Armed Forces people follow because they have to. In civie street they will only follow if they respect the person.

    Thats what I mean.
