G3 Systems are bidding for contracts to supply Fuel Handling Equipment for the Army/RAF, amongst others.

Surely the Corsp RSM is far too busy to be processing CV's and job applications.












Some round these parts have split personalities...hehe...

More to the point - surely the Corps RSM and DRLC shouldn't BE in a position to be involved in contract awards etc???? and especially not work for the company for a certain period after their retirement?

He is not awarding a contract.

He is putting out a job application to the whole corps.

And there is freedom of contract which the parties to the contract are free to enter into agreement on, or not.

On a different level - if Warrant Officers were in a position to award contracts instead of the faceless individuals that currently do so - then the army would more likely achieve value for money and less likely be ripped of by civil servants and senior officers feathering their own nests by awardng expensive contracts with little return to companies on the basis that they will secure employment with the same, once they leave the military.

You mean like the RAF officer behind JPA who was working for the company he awarded the contract to, before he even completed his terminal leave?
or one of the countless senior officers involved in contract work, who since retirement either work directly for or consult to, the same companies they approved or awarded contracts to.

The idea behind sending these jobs out was to try and alert everyone to the job opportunities for those of us about to retire.

Having recently attended a career transitional workshop my aspirations were p*ssed on by an AG Corps major who told me I should stick to what I know, which according to her this means I should drive a big truck for Eddie Stobbart.

I for one am very happy that he took the time and trouble to pass on these opportunities for those of us about to enter the civvy job market!

George_007..... I don't want to seem pedantic here but....

The Corps RSM didn't post this on the internet - you did........ (unless you're the Corps RSM??)

Why post this statement? Why not just post "G3 Systems are looking for people".... You obviously wanted to say something by mentioning DRLC. Why not send the advert to the Logistic Employment Network..? That's what it's there for.

Why would the Corps RSM spend his time going through CV's for DRLC before they've even left?

Not on my Tax payers money they fecking won't! And I'll ring him myself and tell him.

My memory is a bit hazy, but I'm sure I had to sign something to say I wouldn't do that.......

Shop them to the Federalli's - that's what I say :)

I think most people have/will sign an agreement of some sort, seems it doesn't apply to the chosen few or the powers that be have decided not to do anything about it.

I will say 5 words in relation to this subject which have no relevance to the people involved but:

LEX Defence now VT Land

We reap the whirlwind.

George_007, ignore the nasty men.

We wouldn't have been otherwise aware of the job if you hadn't told us.

Many thanks.

They are not promoting ther business. It was nothing more than information concerning job offers. It was not an offer in itself.

In any event one of the RSM responsibilities is advising on resettlement so passing this information was inkeeping with that role. As I understand it, you are not in the military anyway so how does this affect you?

..... I suppose it will be the classic about tax-payers money being abused etc.
