In one, and your points about transition support are well-founded. But while we are 'encouraged' to get involved in local authorities, health and social-care, employers, we're not encouraged to highlight The Emperor's choice of attire....I take it Harry that's a no!
Surveys are all well and good, if something is seen to be actioned or recognised.
Historian perspectives are pointless, its what's happening here and now and how things can be improved.
In a number of cases resettlement plans are put in place from day 1 of joining, I know SNCOs/Officers that have engineered their last postings to settle, resettle and have their exit plan very well worked out that they can walk out of the gate into a job.
However for Jocks, or NCOs in front line jobs doing punchy/niche jobs will I am sure find resettlement hard, as in some cases the unit is reluctant to let them go till the clock strikes the exit hour.
