Ive moved jobs quite often recently due to various cutbacks and issues but over the years I have seen a bit of a trend. My work in local authority positions brings me into contact with a lot of ex forces personnel emloyed within local councils and each person seems to have a different approach and outlook to how and why they do the job. I am predominantly reserve but have completed 2 FTRS postings and 2 tours, with me not being a "teeth arm" (a term which I believe is not only offensive to everyone not deemed 'combat active but is grossly offensive to those not infantry tasked who have given their lives) and in a more administrative role I seem to be a capable planner and an active contributor to a team, but my weakness's lay in not communicating my requirements well enough and of being pretty shy in new company. Infantry people I have worked with seem to be unshy, very good at being dextorous and getting stuck in but seem to be difficult when under instruction with a bit of a holier than thou type approach. RAF guys seem to be a good mix of both but almost unacknowledge their own contributions and are the last who sit and share tales and have a laugh about time served. Havent worked with anyone in the Navy yet but I expect they are similar to the RAF. Discuss maybe?
