Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I have scoured the www for information on this topic to no avail. Without access to DII until the 9[SUP]th[/SUP] of January, I am stuck in limbo. That is, unless you are able to sign-post me to the correct webpage.

    Many thanks in advance for your assistance.
     
  2. Yeah, Alan Sugar had the same problem.
     
  3. Constructive replies are welcome
     
  4. To have a second job you ask permission from the CO and so long as it doesn't affect your Army job, security clearance etc then you're unlikely to be turned down.

    To start a company there's nothing to stop you other than the Army not leaving you all that much spare time and not being allowed to run a business from a MQ (assuming you're married and in a quarter) without permission from DE (I think, I never even bother reading the occupancy contract to be honest but I know it's in there somewhere). Again, you'll want to be sure that your 'new job' doesn't interfere with your real job etc.
     
  5. If you have a DV be sure to write to your unit security officer to appraise them of your plans.
