Like Gregg says, pop into your local ACIO and have a chat, grab some info then go back for another chat.
If it's a case of getting in the army as soon as possible then I think there is a chance of choosing a job, completing basic and applying to change your trade afterwards. (This would mean you will be waiting around in a holding platoon rather than being in civvies street possibly without a wage )
Thanks for the responses I am a plumber at the moment, but have heard these don't use there trade much in the royal engineers and don't fancy having to do the plumbing course again, That I did when I was 16. Thats why I'm looking at different trades.
For your references does your 1st one have to be your current employer, as I would prefer not to put this as with there been waiting lists to join I would prefer not to tel him till a month before when I hand my notice in (hopefully). As could imagine them begin off with me if they knew I was thinking about leaving. Thanks for any advice
I didn't use my employer as one of my references for the exact same reason as yourself, just used two family friends instead. A note of caution, i'm applying for a commission but i imagine the process is not much different to enlisting.
I'm torn between putting air craft technician or electronics/avionics as my first choose. Both appeal to me about the same. I would prefer just to go with which everone has the shortest waiting list is this possible?
