If you've got an Armynet account, check out the OCE list. Follow the MSWeb link at the top. Funnily enough, there's sh!t loads of EOD drivers escorts jobs going on HERRICK, for L/Cpls - Cpls.

But you must keep your unit informed whatever you do, since they can effectively veto your actions if you go outside the chain of command.

The website I suspect you have looked at is for the FTRS posts which are typically long term in duration (12 to 42 months). The OCE list that Cavalier refers to does have possiblities and those posts are boarded at Glasgow on an ad hoc basis.

The form needs to be signed by the CO/1st RO for a job application if you're applying for a particular post.

But agreed, don't go jumping in feet first.

What's the chance of RafAuxAF getting on TA tours like these. Due to the recent recruitment, tours have dried up , we are not needed now.

Guys he is asking about a tour, not a post.
OCE works the same way, you have to complete the form (ideally electronically) and then get your 1st RO/CO to sign it off and ping it up to Glasgow. For soldiers the boards are now held ad hoc, for officers the next board is mid November and applications need to be in three weeks before. Posts are being trawled up to 12 months before mobilisation.

Don't confuse 'there's a war on' with 'there is a massive demand for your rank/skillset'

We are a reserve, if you are that keen for an op tour, go regular.
