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:

    I'm trying to fill out an application form for the mpgs and one of the question is' reasons for applying and I'm stuck on " I need a full time job " any arrsers got any more reasons I could put down ?

    I need a job with a quarter sounds like a fair reason.....most of my blokes probably out something similar, if they are honest. You could tart it up something along the lines of wanting to continue service without ops etc.

    Have you considered the RAF police instead?

    Do you like gates?

    My salary needs are in line with the positions description and what I will bring in ability. I'll also hoof your wife up the hoop if you so much as blink your eyes.

    How about:

    "I need access to camo clothing, assault rifles and ammunition."

    Should go down a treat.

    Remember to sign yourself off as Michael Ryan Jnr.

    "Weapons give me a hard on" or "Its the only profession I can think of post army service where I can routinely fuck off people by holding them up for 5 minutes".

    On a serious note you could try along the lines of "It provides a rewarding second career in a uniformed organisation. Applying myself fully through my previous career I feel I can bring the skills and knowledge forward and progess in the MPGS"

    On another point does everyone in MPGS start as a private or is previous service taken into account for rank/pay etc?

    Yes, all new entrants in the MPGS start as a Pte. the ones at my site are mostly good eggs the Senior CoC find them a worthy asset.

    OP: the MPGS is money for old rope, brings stability & security in a 2nd uniformed career without the added extra commitment of being deployed.

    You'll be surprised how many are considering this Unit during the uncomfortable Tranche period..
