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:

  1. Hi all, apologies in advance if this has already been answered several times.

    If an officer was to resign and get offered a job, how much notice do they have to give.. theoretically they/we are paid monthly in arrears and should only need to give 4 weeks' notice but JPA states it's a year (commission dependent of course) so how much is required really??? assume that waiver statement has been submitted but nothing heard back.. probably still sat in an in-tray somewhere (here's not hoping)

    Finally can overdue annual/terminal/resttlement leave be used to offset notice period (funily enough never used all that leave up.. something about not being over-stretched!

    Thanks in advance!
  2. Point 1. You're in the laps of the gods, assume worse case with a year unless you're lucky.

    Point 2. No, you can't offset and take up other employment.

    P.S. Nice username, BTW

    Officers are required to give a minimum of 7 months notice but the norm is 12 months. You can negotiate with your chain of command and with Glasgow (HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA :D ) to come to some form of arrangement. The bottom line is from what I disemble from your statement is that no, you can't do it in 4 weeks chum. Nevermind.
