TA units in Germany ?

#1
Are there any TA units in Germany, not ones on annual exercise who are lost but ones there permanantly ? The wife is a student nurse and apparently there are jobs for nurses in the Fatherland ( but not in the UK )

Yes. There is an Amphibious Troop RE at Hameln which is part of the local RE unit there.

I imagine you would have to be Toffee to join. There may also be individual posts at ARRC or UKSC(G) at Rheindahlen but I don't have any details.

Really? I phoned 'em last year, and was told they had a waiting list with more than 18 guys on it.

I'd be very interested to hear more.

If your thinking of going out there, the DCSA has a number of IT jobs that might take your fancy. Your wife could probably get a job (once qualified) with British Forces Health Service. Alternatively you could both move to Leeds and gain a better salary.

p.s. Leeds has a large number of IT medical jobs, the RSigs underground (all types) is working hard in this field to help other scallies.

Sounds good, I'll have to give them a ring.

Cheers Polar, will my IBM training in iseries and unix be an advantage ?

Probably, had a small chat about the 'NHS IT' job market in Leeds with one of our Sgts, the following week he was in a new job.

Only had a few dealings with DCSA(G), they seemed to be Microsoft Borg implmenting every security measure that MS recommend. However they are a lot more flexible than organisations such as EMS, who seem to be more keen than at making cash than providing a service.
