TRANSFERING UNITS

#1
Does anybody know what you have to do in order for you to change units? i have been laid of my civilian job, and i am going to do the only job available that includes weekends, and evenings so i do believe a national unit will be best with a lower commitment? any advice would be appriciated

Just speak to your Pl Comd, explain the circumstances and your proposed plan of action.

Be aware that transferring units can be a ballache when it comes to getting paid... There can be a gap of several months while you get lost on JPA...

Depends on units, some will pay you to attend another unit and others will be right twats about it, thankfully the former seem to be the biggest group (I've transferred 5 times and only had problem with one unit - which also was the only time I transferred when I didn't have to)

Transferred 5 times!!? You must have had some pretty "interesting" mess functions to be encouraged to "transfer" 5 times.

Transfers should no longer be the problem they used to be, once all the paperwork is complete it's a two minute job to action on JPA..

The OC of the losing unit still has to sign off on it as does the OC of the receiving unit. Ordinarily, both officers will have had a chat with the transferee before penning their autographs. The change is actioned by APC (Glasgow) in a matter of a few weeks.

my oh my, you have some faith - JPA had my folks down as my emergency contact instead of my wife, despite me changing it many times pre & during deployment. Could've turned out very 'interesting'.

Action is taken by the gaining unit's Career Manager in most cases!
