Secondary job

#1
I'm currently awaiting discharge from ITC catterick, I've been waiting now 5 months for my discharge papers. I'm so bored it's unreal and my trade is security I was just wondering if I could work security while still technically in, would this affect anything? I can't stand another day sitting on my ass doing nothing! When I left a corporal said to me "if you're going to do it, don't get caught"...

P.s sorry if I've posted in the wrong section

I strongly doubt the Army will grant permission: if you get injured while on their books it could cause all sorts of crap and further delays (and the risk that you'll get an immediate medical pension).

If you want to do it then bang in a request up the chain of command.

Get on the X26 or X27 and come and sort my garden out.

What would happen if I was to get caught? Also, how would they find out? Guess I'll put a call into hook coy on Monday and ask
No, seriously, get on the bus.

I've got a new toy and it doesn't work on its own.

@Himmler74 is a lazy shit.

I could be waiting another 7 months for my papers to come through, surely they can't expect me to sit at home and do shit all for a year. I understand if I wasn't being discharged and I was staying in and doing it behind the army's back but they are binning me off anyway?

Yes you can get a job, as long as you have the COs written permission. The issues with income tax and NI contributions are down to you to declare. Highly recommended that you change to self assessments

Gunna bang in a request up the chain of command Monday morning, hope they say yes!
Its early Saturday morning so I dont have the paperwork in front of me, I occasionally write a letter for my lads to request a second job (it normally goes via the OC to the CO). I am almost positive that security jobs are still off limits.
Years ago our provo cpl use to have a sideline getting the lads to work for Atlaw security but none of us could ask permission as Pt one orders had stated no security jobs.
It might hasten your discharge if you are wanting another job which means you will lose your army pay sooner. If you really are bored, either work cash in hand or do some volunteer work.

Cheers for that, would this be the same for lads getting discharged? As in like, I'm leaving anyway, so would they make any exceptions? Suppose all I can do is ask on Monday they can either say yes or no, most likely no by the comments

I'd assume its the same for everyone, either dont tell them or choose something else.

Is there anyway they'd find out if I didn't tell them? Other than someone physically catching me..
Not unless you get nicked for doing something in the course of your job.
