Being a very active member of the unit recruitment team I'd like peoples thoughts on the recruitment process. I am aware of new recruits who have had to wait up to 12 months before they've actually completed the medical, fitness test, aptitude test and interview. Granted i know that some people have also prolonged this process on purpose for one reason or another. Surely its in our best interest to get new applicants processed as quickly as possible? One thought i had is a recruitment day/weekend. Potential new recruits attend a weekend and are given the full mashings all in one go. Surley this would be much quicker and quite easy to organise. I see no reason why this could not be the same for the RN applicants too? Obviously the security clearance will still take time but form most people i would suggest that this is a formality. You know if you've been a bad boy/girl in your lifetime. Has this been tried before? For some reason i have the idea that the TA do something along these lines but i may be mistaken. Standing by to be corrected.
