No suitable roles?

I’ve got absolutely no idea what Military Intelligence does but I’ll definitely look into it. I work in Leeds so it could be easy enough to go see what’s what. Thanks for the suggestion.
 
Hello,

I was in the REME as avionics technician from 200-2006. I turn 41 this month and was looking into what roles would be available to me in then reserves. I filled in the online questionnaire and we got the automated response “ unfortunately, due to the answers you have given? there no roles available to you in the British Army”. It only asked some very basic questions as it was very first step in the process. What’s the problem? Am I too old now? Do the reserves not like ex regulars? Was my service too long ago.....
I appreciate I can ring the recruitment helpline and ask them the question but just wondered if anyone had any ideas?
Thanks.
Try these guys.

 
There usedto be 25 MI in York itself, or have they vanished?
Not sure - there's certainly a 1 MI presence, but the OP is after reserve units.

25 Int & Sy (shows how long since) were a reserve unit, but a quick look on google only shows ACF/ATC signage at the old barracks.

you are quite right.
The old OPINT and Sy Gp (v) did use twos. Long dead now though.

edited to add: nice OSINTing

What kind of things does the Navy do in Leeds?

RNR Units function in a different way to how AR Units do; my understanding is that AR units specialise; RNR Units, apart from one or two particular ones, are different in that they act as a hub for Reservists in the region who fulfil a broad spectrum of roles. The specialist 'National Branches' deal with areas like Media Ops and Submarine Ops. HMS Ferret is a specialist hub for Intelligence personnel.

Personnel attached to the specialist 'National Branches' are still attached to their local hubs (RNR Units), though.

What this means in practice is that at HMS Ceres, as at other RNR Units, you will meet people from the entire RNR spectrum. On any given evening at the Unit, you could find yourself talking to Nurses, Engineers, Divers, people from Logistics, Cyber, Air Branch ……….. they are all there in one hub.

A Unit provides initial "Civvy to Sailor" training and then concentrates on core activities, largely leaving branch training to the branch weekends, courses and exercises. Candidates choose their specialisation about a year after joining and I've been told by someone very well-informed that most can now expect to go to sea in an OPV or QE Class within two years of GTS.

You have a background in avionics, don't you? You would probably enjoy being deployed to HMS Queen Elizabeth.

From what you have said, HMS Ceres is probably on your way home, so I thought that you might like to know that they are having an open evening this Thursday, when you can meet Reservists attached to the Unit. I think that you would find it interesting and even fun. It's definitely worth a look.

I've been told that places are still available for the HMS Ceres evening and that booking online is open until 1900 today.
