I am aware of the bad feeling by some employers of the TA who were happy to release their personnel for Op TELIC to warfight rather than just to stand in for a shortage of regular personnel on Op TELIC 2 and beyond. This begs the question when going for a job - do you tell your potential employer about being in the TA or do you leave it until you have the job, or not tell them at all unless you have to ? The nightmare scenario is if employers in small companys make informing them that you are in the TA as a condition of employment. This will not help TA personnel when going for a new job !!!!!! Grateful for any views and comments.
