Logistics Specialist (Supply)

#1
Hello

Ive chosen Logistics Specialist (Supply) for my first choice as a role in the army.

The reason behind it is im 26 and i have 10 years of experience in Logistics so i really dont want to waste that.

Can anyone tell what it is like serving as Logistics Specialist Supply.

With 10 years experience stacking shelves in Tescos you should join at WO2 rank, good luck.

Sit at a desk, crunch numbers, drink brews, eat Alot of pies, talk schitt, get fat.

The good thing is that if you don't enjoy it you can always transfer/retrade.

Sorry Tescos has not been involved in my career in Logistics or any other supermarket or fast food chain before you say it.

I've been working for 1 company since I was 16 and have worked my way up through the ranks (so to speak).

I know I want supply's but does that mean I will be stuck in a warehouse in the uk for my serving time.

You will be working with stores, but not necassarily in a large warehouse, units such as REME Workshops have small stores sections attached to them. As a sup spec you will be dealing with receipts and issues, this can be anywhere the army currently serves, not just in the UK. Hope this helps.

Thank you very much Swannee. Also Dinger* I am aware of being able to transfer if you dont like a role.

I just want the whole process to hurry now. I so want out of my current company.

If it's what you want have you not thought about trying the Royal Engineers and going for Engineer Logistics Specialist similar stuff but a pinch point trade in the RE and some what undermanned at the moment.

That's because they've all fucked off to work for Jewsons.

I think you'll find mate that you've spelt jewsons wrong, it's spelt KBR ;-)

You'll fit right in if you do the following as a supplier (sorry threw up in my mouth a bit then);

1 ignore everything they teach you in basic training because as a stacker you can do it better (apparently).

2 call everyone senior to you mate and then complain when you get punched.

3 suck through your teeth a great deal and ask "is it cause I'm black

4 say to all driver trade "I can do your job blah blah blah" then ask on ex where the master switch on a LR is.

5 put your webbing together in the dark and tie it up with red tape.

Spartan, why don't you knob off, the OP's question was fair and not posted in the NAAFI.

If you've got problems with your own and trade credibility start your own thread.

Craggle - have a look at RE, they do the same course at Deepcut as RLC Log Specs. Do bear in mind that they are not necessarily well regarded or understood by the Sappers - not RE core business and there has been some chat about RE giving the role up.

In contrast, Log Spec (Sup) RLC is one of the few growth areas in the RLC at present.

Pays your money....

It did look like that from what i keep reading that the RLC are in every area of the army, also at the moment its listed as one of the most wanted jobs for the Army.

Not understood perhaps but probably not fair to say RE log specs are not well regarded. Certainly appreciated by SNCOs and Officers as they are a rare commodity, always wanted and in demand. In terms of giving up the role, I would be interested to hear where you have heard that. Last I heard it was a pinch trade meaning the Sappers want more.

It would certainly be worth a look in for you, there may be more career opportunities further on in a pinch trade.

Added: in terms of the RLC being everywhere in the Army. The RE motto might be worth looking up...
