Transferring from Infantry to RE (Geographic Technician)

Discussion in 'Juniors' started by fluffer, May 15, 2011.

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'm currently serving in the Inf, after Afghan I want to transfer to RE, job specific, a Geographic Technician.
    I have AS levels including Geology and Geography.

    Is there any complications compared to transferring to other roles?
    What should I do first?

    It's not something I want to discuss with superiors right before afghan so any info would be a massive help.
     
  2. First, I'd stick this in the Sappers forum rather than the Juniors, more likely to get more informed replies about the current manning in Geo. Perhaps a friendly MOD could move it? :)

    Also, have a look here:

    I believe it's highly likely you'll need Developed Vetting, got any skeletons in your cupboard? ^^
