My family and I have been posted overseas in February this year, however I have just found out that I have received a 3RO so have the possibility of promotion this year. After speaking to my new RSM I asked if I could defer promotion until this post is finished in Feb 2022. I was simply told no and my family and I would be expected to move again before the year is up. My son hasn’t been in education due to the current situation and desperately needs some stability with his schooling. Has anyone deferred their promotion successfully or have any idea how to go about it or am i clutching at straws here.
