Hi

I was at my local recruitment office today and they advised me that the policy regarding common wealth citizens has changed and you now have to have been in the UK for a min of 5 years to join.

Is this applicable to those who are already in the process of joining? I received an advisory note saying I should travel to the UK for selection. How is the change in policy going to affect those who were invited to come for selection?

Thanks

I have answered this in the PM you sent me
Yes but some prefer ignoring good sound answers from a SME in a private message and asking for random answers in the forums instead

i sent my online medical off around 4 weeks ago and haven't heard anything since, any one know how long it usually takes to hear back after sending back the medical?

That is correct, you got to selection as RAC crewman and tell them of your preferred regiment. Notice the word preferred, it has conitations.
 
I sent mine and heard a reply within 2 weeks. I think it all depends on your location and how busy the recruitment team are. The next stage has been slow for me, im currently waiting for an interview with a careers advisor. The best thing you can do is keep calling them, call the number on the site and they can tell you what stage your application is at

I have a question on the online application, I filled in my eligibility and 'regular soldier' came up so I started applying as I want to be Infantry, but then it gives you 3 'role' choices with broad choices such as 'combat', 'intelligence', 'hr', 'medical' etc. should I select a second and third choice given that my top 3 specific job choices are all within 'combat' and how come the application doesn't ask you about specific job choices?

Does anyone know what the 2nd lot of PEC's include? (the ones done after specialist selection) I know there will be another CRB (not sure why) but will they be contacting my managers again for job specific references rather than a generic one they any applicants referees have to fill in? Also, do the army get sickness records off of managers? Before anyone says it, no I'm not off sick all the time but have been this year more than I'd of liked to be, so curious if it will ever crop up??

Could someone give me an opinion on to whether they think i will be on the same phase 1 as a lad that will be going to the same phase 2 as me.
He has already been given a date for may and i have been sent medical release forms to send off before they can give me a start date eventhough my medical was fine at selection.

Your Phase 1 date dictates when you will do Phase 2 so odds are no you won't. You cannot get a Phase 2 date until you know what date your Phase1 will be starting.
 
I left the army after completing 12yrs of service. I will have been out for a year in Jan. After having some regrets I would like to know if i can rejoin? and if i will go back in as the same rank i left at? will i have to complete some sort of basic training again????
