Work Experience

I am a cadet and looking for work experience within the Army for next year. I have gone through my chain of command, but they failed to get any information back to me. Some where local would be ideal, for example Marne barracks, Catterick Garrison. I wondered if anyone could help me out? :)
Your local AFCO will have contacts galore. I know they set my brother up with a placement at our local barracks trying out 2 weeks of 5 different trades - and he got loads out of it!!!
I went to the SGT MJR but he said he couldnt do anything. I tried contacting them through school but they're hopeless. So i'm here. There is a 5 day live life thing with the Army, its just a matter of getting placements, i have searched all over the internet and found nothing. A friend of mine did it last year, but she is at a different school miles away.

Give it up please

Work experience doesn't involve jumping out of planes and slitting frowts

Just join up something sexy

But what if he is heterosexual?
The other thing to ask about if a reserve unit could help. The issues are insurance and security vetting. The AFC is the closest thing to Army work exp in the regular Army I know of.
