i will try and keep this short. i'm 25, was born and raised in switzerland, still live in switzerland too. i applied for the army the first time dec. 2008, with RE in mind. ACIO couldn't equate my grades and quals with UK ones, so despite a high BARB score they only gave me Driver/C3S/Infantry as choices. not until i reminded them that i'm a fully qualified draughtsman, did they put me in a grey spot. so i can go DD. got a medical deferral in march 09. got the medical okay in nov 09, after i called them up they found somebody had 'archived' my file to be forgotten... i had only called in out of interest, to put the army idea to bed, i was hoping for a big fat NO. instead it was a "come in for an interview".... so i froze my application because i was just offered a job, only just moved in with my gf and everything. 2010 i've still got the army idea nagging at me. office job depresses me. then i got fecked over by them to make matters worse. so i re-started my application. did the tests again, high levels of literacy/numeracy etc etc now we're coming to the actual reason i'm posting. i would really like to get a commission now after thinking more about it. i had previously written it off, because of bureaurocratic reasons. i don't want to be a victim of bureaucracy though. i've already been in contact with my recruiter, apparently it's a no. because of my quals... i definitely have the confident, responsible and leadertype personality. i have a swiss federal commercial diploma as a draughtsman. i speak a foreign language fluently. i have 7 years experience working for civil engineering companies, aswell as manual labour in construction and has an assistant in exploration drilling in the australian outback. i'm worth 40000£ on the civi market. is there no way to even get a chance to at least prove myself? any help would be welcome.
