Which infantry roles promote the fastest?

My mate who recently passed out of catterick and is now in a CIS platoon out in Estonia says that in CIS they promote really quickly so it’s possible he’ll have LCpl after a year. My question is, when I finish my training (I have a start date) and enter my batallion what roles will be available to me, which of these roles promote the quickest and how hard is it to change roles?
 
You will get pot luck, with little or no choice for your first slot. The people who do manning at Bn level will have vacant slots just about everywhere.
You are there to fill an LSN, unless you already have siblings there.
Chances are, if you are any good, some switched on Coy Comd will claim you.
Best route to go is regimental boxing rugby athletics etc.

If your friend’s initials are SB, he’s fcuking full of himself.

You could always apply to a specialist arm like the Combined Underwater Nuclear Testing Section
 
The routes which promote the fastest are generally those which career plateau the fastest too. Are you in for the long haul or just SAS sex - in and out without being noticed?

As a serious answer what make's you think you CAN lead, everyone talks a good job few can do it.

Join, prove you are not a total biff, gain some experience on exercise and hopefully on tour. Complete an internal JNCO’s cadre and hey presto LCpl. All possible in less than 2 years but with rank comes responsibility and you need to have the ability to motivate and control both your peers and more experienced colleagues.

I'm very out of date...what's a CIS Platoon? Is it a platoon full of people of their same birth gender? Lots of those around still I think

The bloke is asking for help, not asking old duffers to try to act like smartarses.

CIS = Command Information Systems or Sigs Pl as @Pob02 says. The name change reflects that its not just radios, batteries and charging, voice procedure and antennae any more.

All academic though, because as everyone knows the role which promotes the fastest is Bedding Storeman.
 
You mock, but that RSM's pension at the end of it makes the struggle worthwhile.
Speaking from personal experience? ;)

I’m looking I go all the way to RSM. Then again if you’re not in the army you probably won’t know how long you want to be in.
