Job age - confusion

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Soldier Recruitment' started by daddypops, Jul 1, 2009.

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'am looking for some clarification on a couple of job choices -

    Firstly my third job choice is AS90 Gunner, this is a job my recruiter has accepted as my third choice, however, I have just noticed on the army website that this particular job is for the age ranges 16.1 to 17.1, if this is definately the case, should my recruiter have noticed / known this.

    Secondly, I had thought about changing my third job choice to Armoured Engineer, but again this seems to carry the same age ranges, my question for this basically is the same as above, is there no way someone of my age (30) can be recruited for these roles?
  2. No mate, you will be looking at the wrong link, the one your looking at is for junior entry (AFC Harrogate). There will be another link for the same job for senior entry where you will se the ages are higher.
  3. You must be enlisted into the Army before your 33rd birthday :)
  4. Thanks, No problem - got ADSC tomorrow.

    I'll double check the site.
