PVR PROCESS

If you are serving there's every chance that someone within your Divisional Chain will provide you with accurate and Official advice.

Here? Easy - Pick your favourite answer then tell your DO that must be true 'cos they told me on that Unofficial RR site.

(Only partly jossing, If you are lucky someone more grown up might pop up with the genuine gen soon, but 'twill still be 'Unofficial...)

It will be explained to you by your DO, basically a sit down chat with the DO to explain why you want to leave, followed by a chat with the PSO, then a medical, a trip to the table and away you go.

This wouldn't have anything to do with you being on leave and relishing lying in your rack all morning being waited on hand and foot by your Mum, including not having to wash and iron your kit?

Always used to get a least a couple knocking on my office door after a leave period, requesting PVR. We used to run a sweepstake on how many would want to jack it in and how many wouldn't come back :)

Sorry should possibly been more descriptive. Googling PVR Navy threw this forum up. A scaffolding firm here. One of our lads joined up and now wants to leave and come back to us. We have tons of work so need the operator, unsure of recruitment back while person is still serving. We seem to think there’s a rule about serving and working. So we aren’t interested in the politics of people bailing out and such as it’s someone’s choice. They chose to bail on us but want to return.

No reason why he can't do some jobs for you whilst he's on leave, beware the tax man though.. He'll have to come back to PVR though which could take up to 2 weeks to process.

One of the questions he'll be asked is what are you going to do outside, if he's got a job to go to it makes it easier.

If he does PVR and subsequently re-joins any of the UK armed forces again he won't have a PVR option.

Thank you. We thought there is a rule that you can’t be in the forces and do another job at the same time. And that they would need to do the PVR and leave before returning to the firm.

Out of interest why are the Navy so bothered if the leaving person has a job or not? Surely if they don’t like the Navy and leave it’s their choice if they have a job or simply leave to spend the next year sitting in bed scratching their arse? We have guys just quit the company with no plan and we don’t really bat an eyelid. It’s their choice in life.

His Divisional Officer (DO) is like a mentor and looks after his welfare, the PSO is the Personnel Selection Officer so think HR. He has a medical to check he hasn't picked up any injuries. Going to the table means he goes in front of the training Commander, with his DO present. The Commander will ask some questions such as why he wants to go, then the Commander will formally discharge him from the Navy.

It's done that way to ensure he knows what the implications are, that he's not being forced out or bullied into it.

The RN's self interest is at play. It costs them a small fortune to get someone in to the service so they really don't want to lose them. If someone wants to leave but has no job or prospects outside they will use that as leverage to encourage the recruit to stay for their own good (and the RN's).

There's also some reputation management going on for those who are U18 as they want parents to be willing to send their kids in to service. That's undermined if they allow such kids to walk away without a fight because it's too hard.

We thought there is a rule that you can’t be in the forces and do another job at the same time.

If someone has joined the Armed Forces on a full-time basis, they wouldn't be able to do another job of the kind you are describing as well on a f/t basis.

This doesn't mean that it isn't possible to be in the Royal Navy and have another job; there are people called Reservists, who are still part of the Royal Navy, it's just that they, on the whole, do have daytime jobs in a thousand and one fields such as working as Doctors, running PR campaigns or scaffolding!

It is therefore possible to be in the forces and do another job; this is what Reservists do.

If you know of anyone who would be interested in combining a daytime job with being in the Reserves, details of local units and the opportunities offered can be found here:

I used to carry out addition civvy work. Over leave periods and periods of extended absence. A disclaimer was signed stating I wouldn't bring the RN into disrepute nor divulge operational matters.
Any injuries sustained during extra curricular activity would be classed as self inflected and subject to naval discipline.
However with scaffolding being a high risk job - I wouldn't hold my breath on the mob agreeing to that one!!

is this the same for under 18s? And is the 6 month period including leave?
