I'm currently applying to become an Int Corps soldier but my careers advisor thought that, as I've a degree, I should try the Officer route. Which is the most interesting position in the Corps? Do officers just delegate int tasks to soldiers and then make decisions or do officers actualy do int work themselves and perhaps brief relevant high-ranking officers or mandarins? Do the soldiers do most of the int work and the officers are no more than line managers in camouflage? What's the different roles of each position? Any help with this would be much appreciated. Also, on the Army recruitment website, it talks about a further deployment in the army in general, 'to get a better understanding of the army as a whole' before phase 2 training begins at Chicksands. What's going on there? How long does that last? Is it just a way of making you join the infantry for a period as they're so down on manpower there...?
