Sandy Places

Discussion in 'Jobs (Discussion)' started by Bodhisattva, Mar 11, 2010.

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. After 17 years as a REME VM, I handed in my notice and joined the ranks of Civ Div. I worked as a field service engineer on concrete mixing plant and then got a job as a production control manager in a workshop where we overhauled trains.

    I was made redundant at Christmas last year and have decided that what I really want to do is defence contract work as I miss the military mind set and work ethos.

    I have got applications in with a couple of companies who were advertising for vehicle mechanics to work in Afghanistan but they are at the "limbo" stage of getting the contracts finalised and nothing is moving with any sort of urgency.

    Is anyone currently in this line of work and if so, are you aware of any openings within your organisations that I may apply for? My CV is available on request and I am available immediately for deployment anywhere.

    Thanks for reading.
  2. Have you checked RAJA, loads of sandy stuff on there, was having a gander this afternoon.

  4. Nah, nowt for an out of work A mech!!

    Speak to VT about a teaching job, you get to wear a nice blue overcoat
  5. Have you seen the wages they offer mate? bloody slave labour that is! And Bordon Heath does not qualify as a "Sandy Place" :p
  6. Cheers Spaz, I sent them my CV a while ago but they had no openings at that time. I had forgotten about them so will send them another letter. Nice one :)
  7. There's also always Fastrax as a HET maintainer in the sponsored reserve role, although this would involve wearing green kit and carrying a rifle.
  8. Considered that but the work when not deployed is too far from my home location to be feasible.
  9. Ah well good luck anyway.
  10. Cheers mate :)
