Is 44 to old to rejoin??
So I left the mob in 2012
I've recently requested to rejoin and had a chat with a recruiter in Pompey. Filled in all the paperwork online etc. Been told that my branch manager will have me back at the same rate I left with the same pay scale etc. Don't need to do Raleigh . Just a short rejoining routine... Rnft etc.
What I'm wondering am I being unrealistic..

No. I don't think so. The Branch Manager and the CAs in the AFCO are experienced professionals who would know if you weren't suitable and it sounds to me as though they are happy to see you proceed with your application.

I think that what you are experiencing are just the normal feelings anyone in your situation would be feeling; I would take a deep breath and just get on with it.

It might be a good time to putting in extra on your fitness now.

Many thanks for your reply.
It's reassuring that you don't think so.
Pounding the pavements daily trying to get core Phys up to a reasonable standard.
Been told 8-10 weeks untill they get me back in, providing all is well.

Just a word of advice on the “same pay scale” thing. Get a pounds and pence figure from your branch manager. The pay system has changed since you left and you need to know how they work out your position on the new scale and what that result is. I rejoined in 2003 after Pay2000 came in. The recruiting office told me one way and they then calculated it differently when I actually rejoined. You know the change wasn’t to my benefit. I complained and they found the Careers Office got it wrong and said sorry. So get a pounds and pence figure in writing before you commit. The level you start on could only be a few hundred quid different but cumulatively an extra level at the start could mean a bit more over time.

I didn't think I could do the bleep test or Rockport walk as a PJFT. Suppose I'll speak to the advisor on Monday.

Ships,
Rejoin, get OPS and in date for everything else. Do what you do and you will get pulled through for PO (AWT). We are hanging out for AWT. The last signal was ridiculous long. Sea drafts are still turbo small for AWT’s.

With regards to SRCC, it’s a different beast nowadays. Play the game and get your tie and silly cap.

Good luck oppo.

Had a phone interview and was told, good pass etc. Need to wait for security clearance and medical reports to come back and I should be good to go.
Looking at 6-8 weeks and hopefully thats that.
