Hi im thinking of joining the royal signals as a systems operator does anyone have any info on the job description how the job has changed I've read a lot of old threads, working conditions, combat ect? Also what to expect when on barracks?
The operator trade is likely to under go a big shake up and be more focused on IT. The job description will vary from unit to unit with only some being the same. You’ll go through a training course in Blandford for a period of time the move on to a field unit. Every unit is busy but the Ops tempo eg Afghanistan is minimal. However opportunities to go away are good. Note that everything changes...all the time so expect the unexpected.
