Tips on boosting an SJAR

Discussion in 'Reports & Promotion' started by Coates, Aug 19, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was looking for some advice that would boost my SJAR. I have recently been posting to a new unit and I am looking at ways to make myself stand out so I can recieve a good SJAR. There is not much of a work load for my trade group so I'm looking for ideas that will reflect in my annual report such as charity work etc..Any ideas and help would be appreciated. Also if you have examples on things previously done that would be a great help.Cheers.

    Just show that you can organise stuff.

    I can't organise a piss up in a brewery, but I know how to tell people how to do it.

  3. Civilian FE courses?
    Internal/External functions?
    Professional sports contribution?

    There's a few off the top off my head.

    You could always try being outstanding at your job, and then build the charity/sports/social/etc onto your activities.

    Failing that, rebuilding the garden of your local special needs school (if they still have them where you're posted) is always a winner. It ticks all of the boxes of team building/leadership/ resource management/community liaison.
     
  5. A case of Aberlour 18 year old single malt in the right direction.

    If a SJAR is the current version of the old 'Confidential', then you'll probably get away with a single bottle.

    Are you trying to insinuate that the 1&2RO might be venal?
     
  7. There's a world of difference between 'venal' and 'discerning and appreciative'.

    Would one "care to share"?
     
  9. Nope. Buy yer own.

    I was referring to the tastes of 1&2ROs, not your whisky.

  13. You're a knob.

    Is that how you got promoted? Crying like a girl? Getting your tits out?

  15. Well, that would rather depend whether or not the ROs in question are;

    1) Fundamentalist Muslims

    2) Born-again evangelist, bible-punching, blue-nosed wowsers

    3) Normal human beings.

    I would say that the vast majority of ROs conform to category 3.
