Short touring and SSC


I'm half considering applying for a short tour due to being "mis-sold" the job I'm in. If I short tour in this post and get another job, will this mean I have to extend my SSC to four years in order to fill a two year posting? Or will I still be able to leave the service after my 3 years?

As far as I am aware, you can leave at the three year point. Simply do not extend your SSC! You will probably find that on your posting order, it may say something like: End Of Tour Sep 08 dependant on extension of commission, or something like that.

If you are adamant that you will leave at the 3 yr point, ensure that you reflect that on your OJAR as well (ie do not volunteer for a change of commission on the bottom box of the OJAR).
