How to apply

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. Sorry if this is a dumb one.
    I'm planning on applying in the very near future and am a little confused about how best to go about it.
    The ArmyJobs website want me to make them my first point of contact, while a couple of the regiments I'm interested in seem very keen for me to go to them first. Is a given regiment capable of booking me a place on a Briefing and then on an AOSB, or is this always done by way of my local AFCO? Thanks.
  2. Go to your AFCO. Applying online slows things down a lot as I discovered.... I'm talking a few months!
  3. Get to the AFCO.
    Arrange a briefing on the process. Attend.
    Arrange interview with ACA (Advisor). Attend.
    Arrange FAM Visits. Attend. Hopefully get sponsored (not end of world if you aren't).
    Attend Briefing. Pass.
    Attend Main Board. Pass.
    Attend PCCBC.
    Attend RMAS.

    Thats how mine is planned out at present. 1 week to Briefing :)
