Sorry if this is in the wrong place. In a final attempt to reinvent myself and endeavour to contribute to this forum in a way that will not upset certain members, I thought this might be a useful contribution. Ex-officers / SNCOs - What do you do when you leave the forces? What careers are open to you? This strikes me as a positive civilian requirement for good jobs "Applications from ex-Officer or ex-SNCO Armed Forces candidates are strongly encouraged" on http://www.glasgow-jobs.org/jobs/financial-consultants-11359.htm That's actually very good, that industries are actively seeking ex-forces' personnel to stock in their workforce, obviously with the skills honed as an officer or NCO.
