internal transfer

#1
Hello all, im not even sure if im in the correct forrum as this is my first time doing this and im looking for some advice. Im currently serving in Royal Engineers, would like to transfer to Royal Military Police.
Iv been in RE for nearly 4 years now and basically because i was a joiner on civvy street for 6 year, I was offered a 'golden hello' by the recuitment
office of £2500 if i continued by trade in Engineers. I agreed and was then fastracked through my trade training etc. Because of the money and debt at the time i jumped at the chance and went ahead. 3 year down line and im now feeling that i want to learn something new and need a new challenge.
So before any body jumps on me back....i am a Proud Sapper and regret nothing, however i would like to complete 12 year with army then hopefully join the Police, im purely thinking about my future as well as my familes as i dont fancy going back on a building site, i need securety...dont we all?
I have already spoken to my troopy about this and i think hes going to make this hard for me.
So if anybody could help please?

1. Is there vacancies for RMP at mo?
2.Do you have more of a choice on postings, or is it chin up your going? like the rest!
3. Do RMP do any infantry excersises, play soldiers etc or is it all job related?
4. Could it take long to transfer or can this be a smooth process?
5.Do RMP deploy regularly and taken my wife and kids into concideration can being an RM Policeman be abit more stressful in terms of overseas postings i.e Canada or even more rewarding? (i realise a canadian posting is probably also like gold dust to lol)?
6. Can anybody offer any honest real down falls to being in RMP?
The Engineers has alot of bullshit and il be kidding myself if i think any other Corps is different. However the RMP is the path i want to take and will do all i can to make it. I have C's in both maths and English, although i am a little rusty etc. I also im of a good fitness level. If any body could offer me any advice on any of the above or just in general about transfering and the RMP then I will thank you in advance for your time and comments..........cheers.

I don't think there's many RMP's in civvy street, have you cosidered a career in joinery

...cant u see i thinking of civvy strert
RMP would put you in a good way to join civy police, Not anymore it will not!
Police are cutting back more than the military at the moment.
Best way in to civy police is to become a special and get in that way.
You could just do 22 years get a good pension & think yourself lucky you still have a job!!!

Appart from the obvious one of everyone thinking your a ****. In all honesty, you are just as likely to get a job with plod as a wedgy, than you would as RMP, plus you will have the benefit of having a decent trade behind you to fall back on. If I were you, I would stay put and find a trade within the Engineers that you will enjoy

what has the RMP got to offer apart from the chance to bust a few drunken squddies on a Friday night?
You might aswell become an RP, less training therefore more time in the job, you don't work weekends, more time with the family also the level of thought required to do the job is less so that should help you.

cheers drain sniffer.... need the change though
Why the change, you've only been in 3 yrs. why don't you be honest, you don't like being RE. Why?

Your troop comd will have no say in whether you stay or go. It's up to your OC, RCMO and the RMP.

Your mistaken if you think the grass is greener. Why don't you look at volunteering for CP with RMP. I believe it's all arms now

Yep, sounds like what I used to do as a Sapper, as well as patch painting panzers. If your bored there is plenty of scope of getting out of the G10.

Before you cut your nose off, get yourself promoted and that will open up some more routes for you. What's your Tp management like? Are they lazy or proactive about your career?

Are you the **** within the troop? Serious question.

The corps is and still is very diverse, give it time
