Applying for motorman .... again!

#1
Some obligatory noob questions coming up if ya don't mind team!! Cheers in advance!

So, applied to join earlier in the year as a motorman, had my test (RT?) at Plymouth AFCO and passed that then got offered an interview in pompey but I had to pull out due to various family problems. Emailed the lass that I had to deal with about the interview and she tells me motorman applications will be opening again soon for intake late this year/early next year but I forgot to ask, obviously I'll have to re apply but will my test score still stand or do I have to do that again as well?

Also, being ex navy will I bypass Raleigh? Not that I want to, I just heard a rumour that I wouldn't be going. Kinda want to for nostalgia purposes :D

Finally would it be better to get things like my ENG1 and seamans book etc sorted before I join?

I'll probably have more questions but having a bit of a brain fart atm..

TVM!!

Your RT pass is valid for 3 years I believe, Ninja Stoker can confirm this when he's about.

You won't go to Raleigh. MM2 training is conducted at Sultan. If you want to go to Raleigh then join as a deckie.

You won't be required to get your ENG1 or Discharge Book unless you receive a provisional offer.




Why do people start sentences with "So..."?

Why do people start sentences with "So..."?
I'm not sure that there is a definitive answer to that, ExJ, but a fair bit has been said and written to try and answer that question! I have to say, I can see how it filtered into speech but am surprised that it has inveigled its way into the written word.

BBC News - Today - So does starting a sentence with 'so' annoy you?

So, here's a carefully packaged sentence that shows me in my best light | Oliver James | Comment is free | theguardian.com

Perfect. Cheers for that :)

Funnily enough it annoys me as well... Yet I still do it...

I always see 'So' as a prelude to a question, from the outset the listener knows to expect a question alot of the time. Doesn't really bother me, seems to be quite prevelent in American programmes I watched growing up, maybe you're all just old? :D

Joking...

So, nice weather huh?

Interesting. Whenever I contact recruitment they tell me they never know in advance when roles are going to become available. Am I speaking to the wrong people?

The best number to call is the 08 number on the website, it puts you through to the RFA Recruiting team in Pompey and they have their finger on the pulse. The AFCOs only undertake the initial tests, so they only know when selection is taking place by the flurry of last minute bids for RFA test places.

I completed the online form and recruitment called me to tell me when the next drive would be. They called me the day before recruiting opened to see if I was still interested and it went from there.

The 08 number is the one I use, I'll just keep trying it Ninja, thanks.
I'll have a look at the online application route exJ, thanks for that tip.

It's an online form to raise interest rather than an application form.

Just been looking at that. Can see the online application, but not the raising an interest one. Whereabouts is it if you don't mind me asking exJ?

It's that form but don't think of it as an application form. The proper one is paper and sent out to you when they are recruiting.

It was the email address I used. They put it on the letter they sent me for the interview first time round. I didn't ask she just told me to look out around June/July this year for the next recruitment drive.

Anyone know when the courses are at sultan by any chance? Trying to figure out when I'd be joining. Guessing thee only do a few a year.
