At last ..... back to hanging the guilty bar-stewards out to dry.Wouldn’t the recruiting partnership have gone a whole lot better if those who deemed the concept had implemented it?
Unarguably, in the form of Nugee, he did deem the concept and implement it.
Despite the protestations to the Defence Council that those who "signed off" on the RPP had all left without being promoted (probably technically true) Nugee was Director of Manning (Army) in March 2009, Director General of Army Personnel in June 2012, Defence Services Secretary and Assistant Chief of Defence Staff (Personnel) in March 2015, became Deputy Chief of Defence Staff (People) in June 2016 and is now Chief of Defence People.
Apart from a year out as CoS in Afghanistan in 2014 he's been deeming and implementing the concept for the past ten years.
His predecessor as Chief of Defence People was Andrew Gregory, who had previously also been Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff (People) (then titled Deputy Chief of the Defence Staff (Personnel and Training)) and also previously Director General Personnel - also hauled in front of the Defence Committee for failures in recruiting and retention (in 2008 ).
DG Personnel is specifically "in charge of both setting personnel policies and ensuring on behalf of the Commander-in-Chief the delivery of those policies across the Army."
The problem isn't posting on after two years, but it's down to total incompetence, denial, and absolute self-interest.
