Cpl to Sgt Promotion is here again

#1
Hey guys as all you old and bold and maybe some of you young/wet behind the ears will know its June and we get to see who has fully deserved their place in the mess, the board results for Cpl to Sgt. Good luck all - the elite amongst us will leave the junior rank status behind and begin the process of purchasing mess dress, monthly mess bills for a mess they never visit the huge pay rise (???). Financially we are all to be honest better of as Cpl's - but were all fighting to become a Sgt and progress beyond, why I ask is there little reward for leaving behind the best rank in the Armed Forces - Cpl???

A Lt gets promoted to Capt and receives 1000's more each year the jump from level 7 Cpl to Sgt is nothing more than the 3% or so you will receive each year.

Still fingers crossed hope I come off but as you see its not all doom and gloom to those who don't.

IF ANYONE SEES THE BOARD RESULTS CAN YOU PLEASE PM ME A COPY IM LOOKING FOR COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS OPERATORS OR RS OPS WHATEVER THEY CALL US THESE DAYS.

CHEERS GUYS GL ALL

True, Captain to Major is a good 10% or so rise, unlike mere ORs.

Lt to Capt is indeed a huge payrise but you have to consider the roles and responsibilities that come with it.

By and large Capts and Majs have to go through planning and estimates in horrendous detail as well as try and meet timelines for readiness without all the pre requisite eqpt, manpower and training amongst their troops. Easy? no.... stressful? Yes.

Do Jnr Sgts have to do the same? To a degree yes, but they are responsible for relatively small spheres of responsibility (yes I am generalising). The different payrates reflect the different workloads and responsibilities not to mention that Cpls and Sgts get a far more 'fun' workload and the chance to interact and work with the lads on a daily basis instead of being tied to a DII terminal.

Just a thought ;)

Hey all,

Could somebody PM with the results when they get a copy please as i'm on leave at the moment.

Thanks in advance :)

Believe me when I say that I'm desperate to know the results of the IS board, but surely no one will PM them to an account that has just been opened today?

Security, dirty word, etc.

Not that I’ll object if someone would like to prove me wrong.

P.S. Congrats to the Gragant that I faced on Saturday.

I've just got that all important 'anonymous' text message. It sound like all three from my place who where up for it have been successful - can I look surprised when they tell us tomorrow? :D

Fellers,

Calm down! The results are embargoed until 0900 tomorrow. (And we all know that nobody would ever release them prematurely...) The 'worthy' will find out shortly thereafter.

Cue much wailing and gnashing of teeth.

So if I go knocking at the door of my friendly COMCEN tomorrow morning at 0900 they should have the signal?

Is that local or Zulu?

0800Z, so 0900L. It should be with the CoC already...

Trying to get that info from my CoC is like getting blood from a stone. Saying that they probably won't know themselves. It'll be on here before they know!

If the results were published to the CoC via a signal then I'd know about it already.

It should have been.
