Work Experience

Discussion in 'ACF' started by SierraOscar, Dec 22, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 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? :)
  2. Phone them? not sure if the army do work experiance but i know the RAF do!
  3. 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!!!
  4. The Army do it, its just the job of finding it. If not i might try RAf- As a last resort.
  5. 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.
  6. No such thing...
