    I apologise if covered before, if it has I am struggling to find it.
    Just incase my son gets asked at interview this week..........
    Could someone please verify contract times we know you sign a 28 day one when starting at Raleigh but are unsure from then.
    We know it may be brought up at interview.

    Contract length is 18 years or until your 40th birthday, whichever is longer.

    At any point after the first 28 days from signing on until 6 months from that date a recruit can Pre Voluntary Release and get out of the mob there and then, though it must be noted that getting cold feet and PVRing on a whim can impact chances of rejoining in the future.

    After 6 months a return of service is required before notice can be placed (I believe the length of time varies from trade to trade though I stand by to be corrected), once out of return of service 12 months notice must be given to leave.

    Hope that answers your question :)

    Spot on.

    Return of Service (RoS)commences after Standard Initial Training Period (SITP) is completed, RoS is usually 2.5 years apart from Nurses & Comms Techs which is 3.5 years.

    Thankyou both very much I do appreciate it

    If he does join, he says he has no intention of leaving but we know he may be asked in the interview.

    Fingers crossed for him tomorrow...another step closer for him hopefully.

    As a parent i have got to say as he gets nearer it becomes more tense as you so want them to achieve their goal.
