Whats the best way of securing a mid post move?

#1
Been where I am for a year and since my marriage has just ended I fancy moving, as to be honest I hate it where I'm at.

What's the best way to go about it? OC Sqn interview and officially request it? Welfare side due to the marital thing (kind of get a feeling this won't work) or go via my RCMO, who I'm incidentally due a FCR interview with.

Also, what's my chances? Anyone actually managed it? After Wilton preferably, though Blandford might be alright as I'm after doing my TMA's this year and being there might help matters... SST might be good.

Advice appreciated.

I got a move by the CO interview route, backed up by chatting to the Adjt at Lanyard trophy training, and laying out my reasons to him. Once he heard them, and was convinced I was serious, I got a choice of postings within a week. Never went near the CO, so who said that there's no point to Lanyard! :p

Talk to the Padre. He will have a great ear and be able to talk things thru' with you and can fastrack postings and will help you out. Trust me they are worth their weight in gold and want to help. Hope things work out son.

I can't believe youre even thinking of pulling the welfare card when it is apparently not warranted. Its either due to welfare or its not. It shouldn't be used or even concidered as an 'option' to going elsewhere. That sort of thing pishes me off a bit because people who do pull that card tend to shaft other people...not to mention the integrity side of things.

Try Pad shagging. That's been known to have people moved within days.

You have lost your fil friend there is a thing in AGAI's self removal of post - non blame worthy - look it up. I know people whom have done it, it has to be approved by the CO, but it can be a lottery where you are posted.

Yeah I know about the pad shagging thing. Only reason I mentioned the welfare route is because IMO it kind of is but it isn't... then again the UWO is also my Sqn 2IC since everyone's deployed so he'd find out one way or another.

Thanks for the advice so far.

Are there any children involved? If so and they are with her then you should be able to get welfared to that area in the kids interest.
Blandford and wilton! Also in the area then must be 1 mech, 3 div etc.

I've moved early twice. Only about six months both times but I just spoke to the Adj. Also if you know someone in a decent position at the Unit you want to go to, give them a bell and ask them to vouch for you. Believe me this works. Dont try a welfare route, this will just piss your mates off and then everyone will try it. Just be a necky twat like I was. Shy boys get no sweets.

No children thank god, if there was then I would be going the welfare route for obvious reasons. Don't want 1 Mech or 3 Div as I've already done 20 ABSS and 1 Div.

Cheers, I'm currently working pretty much directly for the Tech Adj, Traffic and TOT so I'll drop a hint in at some point and in the mean time get a OC interview request put in.

Thanks for the help chaps.

Exactly the reason why the welfare route should be avoided, to many people have abused the system. At my last unit Me and another T1 were after mid post moves. He used a valid welfare case and I played the wanting to develop my career card. Needless to say I was gone well before him.

The only advice i can give is ensure you keep your chain of command well informed of whatever you're doing. My last OC threw a track because i got an RCMO's interview to get posted and even though i'd told my Sgt he was to scared to go tell the OC. Needless to say I ended up in an interview without coffee about being disloyal.

Oh yeah and I know you're not meant to but making a phonecall to Glasgow helped me out considerably. Although i struggled to keep my gob shut when the OC told me he'd made lots of phone calls on my behalf and secured me the posting i wanted. :lol:

How soon after you put in your request did you get your PO? Or is the what you're referring to with 6 months?
