Are they any use? Has anyone ever used one who has any knowledge of the civillian workplace? Is it just jobs for the boys? My resettlement officer at Larkhill was hell-bent on trying to get me to go to university in Plymouth when I was planning to move back to Lancashire. I really don't see how these people who have never held a civvy job in their lives can be responsable for helping people out ready for their return to civ-div. Has anyone ever met a helpful or useful one? It seems to me that if a national employment agency such as Adecco were to take over forces resettlement we could all get out into the jobs we wanted at the time we wanted with ease. Adecco would have to offer full time positions though (with the option of being agency staff if people wanted), but I think this would beat some crusty officer telling all the non-commisioned ranks that they could be manual laborers easily enough whilst pushing the commisiond ranks into banking and management.
