A couple of questions

What exactly does it mean when people say AFCO have to bid for your place and secondly how many weeks/months before you join up do you get your offer of a provisional starting date?

many thanks!

Depends on your branch mate. Some trades are easier for you to slip into, others require more wait because of the demand.

However if your name is Zoidberg or Chicogiz the AFCO will be willing to have a whip round in the local community to raise funds to ship you off as soon as possible.
