I was told I was going in May, Got a phone call tonight to say the post has been filled or does not exist any more. When I asked for details of other jobs, I was told there wasn't anything else.

If anyone knows of a unit that needs a TA CQMS to start mobilisation March - May pm me.

This seems an odd way to try and get a job but you never know.

Cheers

It isn't, we had a call for 60 bods, put 30 names forward and 3 were chosen.

Last mobilisation in my unit to support RA on Herrick asked for 40 pax.. They recevied 40 names - all willing to go.. They called forward 2..

It was another 10 weeks after this, the remaining 38 were told to stand-down!

As the boys were asked to inform their employers of impending mobilisation, two lost their jobs and some of the others have now seen careers stop.

The boys are now a little concerned about future mobilisations and take-up!

That must be annoying.

And there was me thinking it was all planned and thought about: I recall there's a vacancy list somewhere (?????)

LOL same here mate! Apparently not though! All I wanna do is go on Herrick with the regs as an inf pte... easier said than done apparently... should have stayed stateside, they'd have had me in the sandbox as a Sgt before I could say G.I. Bill! DOH!

I've found it:

List of Mobilisation opportunities

However:

LAND is currently matching the requirement with nominated units for the next period of mobilisation in support of operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Unfortunately, the detail of the posts that will need to be filled by Reservists will not be available until Mid Nov 06.
So those of you keen to deploy, don't go holding your breath!
