Re-joining (Failed Civvy)

Discussion in 'The Corps' started by s6270, Nov 21, 2010.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi guys,
    I left the Corps earlier this year and I miss it already! I'm off to do a bit of travelling and then I hope to rejoin next summer. I've heard a little dit though that if you rejoin you sign on for the remaining years in your contract and have no option of putting your chit in to leave. Can anyone confirm this or tell me more??
    I'll go to the AFCO when I'm back in the UK but I wanted an idea before that.

    You don't have the entitlement to PVR during the first six months, but your other notice eligibility will still apply (ie when you've done the required return of service you can hand in your notice).

    Good luck.
  3. Re: Re-joining

    I had a feeling that a minimum service would apply but I think someone successfully got me on a bite by saying I wouldn't be able to PVR at all. I only did 8 years so the remaining 14 year commitment is a long one!

    Thanks for the reply

    10 years remaining fella. You'd go on the new engagement which is service totalling 18 years

    Assuming someone left the Corps by submitting notice to quit after 8 years service General Duties, fully fit, then providing they are recommended further service:

    They will rejoin on the AFPS 05 scheme (18 years or to age 40, whichever's longer... Minus time served). Their previous pension accrued remains preserved.

    Most GD rejoiners can expect to specialise immediately upon rejoining - very often D3, SA, K3, Clerk or Sigs.

    Having taken up an SQ they will have to complete the appropriate Return of Service for the trade before being eligible to submit 12 month's notice to quit a second time.

    At present the Corps is getting close to manning balance & even trained ranks lessen the odds of being re-employed, the longer they leave it.

    At AFCO level we're witnessing an increase of trained ranks applying to rejoin, probably due in part to the withdrawal/outlawing of CP jobs in Afghanistan.

    Alright mate I was in the same position as you but this time I'm swapping the green suit for a blue suit. Anyway I'm just waiting for a start date then off I go. Good luck to you mate hope it works out.

    Can we change the name of this thread to 'Failed Civvies' please.

    I can relate to that, but I think a third pop at it is out of the question for me.
