what to join as......

#1 Post by Burnsie »

Good evening all.

I'm interested in joining the TA (obviously).

However, unlike the RAF, the TA seems to offer a wide selection of branches and roles for "part-timers". Although this makes perfect sense for some roles where civi's and military ranks do similar jobs (i.e. in health care) in more specialists military roles does this not require substantial additional training that might be wasted if the TA solider decides to leave at short notice?

Although I am education to post-grad level, I don't have any directly transferable skills (i.e. I'm not a nurse). I'm therefore looking for a role that would be both rewarding, fun and different from my 9-5. Does the TA only recruit certain roles at certain times? Do you have to apply to the units near you, even if they don't offer any of the role you want to undertake?

any additional info would be gratefully received....

Your best bet is to either email or visit one of the recruitment offices, they will be able to tell you far better than most people on any web site.
