VENG Revisited

#1
Here's a thought. There's been 2 rounds of redundancies since I was told that I should have applied for VENG. How many of those had been granted the 2 year extended career? What are the odds of SOinC(?) issuing a few more golden tickets?

None as SOinC is no more......

Well, my tuppence worth.

Offered it intially, signed the paperwork, job done.

Never heard back, thought nothing of it, never got it.

Asked the RCMO as it wasn't on JPA and got laughed out the office, so I would say no.

We've still got an SOinC(A) haven't we? Just a Col now... not the Maj Gen we had when I joined...

Do we still have a LT Gen as a Master of Signals?

Saw a short chap in my place the other week with Lt Gen slide on. Got stared at by the Corps Razzer for being up and in. Neither of them mentioned my VENG.

HTB,

I applied for VEng in 2006, heard no more about, assumed it had been kicked into touch and promptly forgot about it. Imagine my surprise in 2008(?) when I was looking on JPA for something else and discovered I had been moved from Oen Engagement to Notice Engagement (or vice versa), and my ROD had moved from Apr 11 to Apr 13!

That was the same as me HTB check your P File and the hard copy should be in there. Spoke to Glasgow and they change your projected termination date and this should then appear on JPA.

Its a little more complicated than that Munch. Any change to the terms of service (if you have the hard copy to back up your claim of the offer & acceptance) now requires a letter to DM(A) for approval to change your engagement. It took about a year for them to jump through the various hoops for me.....

So who do I formally staff the question to?

Ahh, the Corps gets away with it again.
To be fair to the Corps (and Glasgow), it must have been a nightmare trying to resolve the VEng issue, particularly when SDSR came along in 2010 and drove a coach and horses through the plans. Thankless task trying to keep up with whims of Politicians!

MiracleBill - go to your 2IC who should then flag the issue to the Adj and it will go to Glasgow from there. Obviously having the paperwork before hand will help you massively so as someone on here said, check your p-file with the Clerks, I mean Cbt HR Specialists..... If you don't have the paperwork then I'm afraid you won't get anywhere.

Paperwork, there lies the problem. At 2 consecutive units (both R Sigs), I/we were advised that VENG would come to us and we didn't need to do anything. Do I have a paperwork trail to support this? Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
