Jobs Roles That Don't Move Around Often?

Discussion in 'Join the Army - Regular Soldier Recruitment' started by PteCrow, May 28, 2013.

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. Helloha,

    Subject of the thread kind of says it all however I was wondering if some kind person could inform me in the jobs that don't move around, unless amalgamated or something along them lines.

    I know Infantry pick a unit and are there for the duration of their career. I don't have much desire to join the Infantry but I'd like to be situated in the same location.

    Thanks :D
  2. TBH mate, I don't think you should join with the attitude of 'not wanting to move around much' - that's not really in the spirit of what the armed forces are all about. In reality, you could be posted anywhere with whomever you join. I've just drawn the North of Scotland for the next few years which wasn't my number 1 however it's the hand I've been dealt.

    You don't give any indication of what you want to join which might be useful. If you are joining in a support role, you will end up wherever there is a vacancy to be filled. It really isn't down to what you want but instead where you are needed.

    Sorry I can't be more positive in my reply but that is the reality of joining the forces. It's not for convenience. Good luck anyway. Bry.

  4. Apache Flight Simulator Instructor.

    Drone Pilot.

    Estate Warden.
  5. RLC MLK (Military Lighthouse Keeper) - but opportunities for promotion can be a bit limited.
  6. Thanks for crazy quick replies.

    I'm not looking for "convenience" for myself more for my wife and kid. I don't want to be moving them around every 3 years although I don't want to only see them once a week. However as far as all the other inconveniences likes weeks of exercise, operations (if there are any more), postings that may move me from my family for a while I am more than happy to put up with.

    It must be possible to have an army career and an almost stable family living arrangements. Or am I to believe that if I'm in the army I can't set up home somewhere without only seeing my family at the weekends.

    Jobs I'm considering:

    2-Communication System Operator
    3-Comm Logistic Specialist

  7. any storekeeping role would suit you as long as you dont tend towards poddginess !!
  8. Palace Guard
  9. Just had a look at Drone Pilot and I would like to edit my list to look like

    1-Artillery - Drone Pilot.

    Jobs sounds amazing and you are posted to set locations. Thanks a lot for all your replies been a great help. Even then "WAH!!" >.>
  10. I had a look at the Navy but the only thing that appealed to me was the fact I get to have a bit facial hair. Even the idea of being on a metal container for 6 months + makes me feel sea sick.

    Appreciate the bold suggestion though.

    I think that the army of the future is going to be much less mobile than most people are currently used to. For most individuals you'll end up in a single super garrison and stay there for the majority of your career.
