Hi everyone, I left university last summer with the intention of travelling for 6 months or so before starting my army application to join the Int Corps. Due to a death in the family this didn't happen and I began my application at the turn of the year whilst working 2 pretty soul-destroying jobs at home. My ADSC is at the end of this month and my Recruitment Sgt. said that depending on my performance I could be looking at late June as my earliest possible start date for phase 1. However, in the meantime I've been offered guaranteed work in Australia for 3-4 months starting in August. Is deferring entry to phase 1 an option that is worth enquiring about? I've read a lot about applicants being deferred entry for physical issues but never heard of the applicant requesting a deferral. I asked about this on the Army's online chat facility yesterday but didn't receive any kind of answer one way or another, and don't fancy asking my new civvy recruiter (who I've not properly met/spoke to yet) in case he responds in the negative and sticks it on my file! Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
