    Every role in the UK Armed Forces is likely to require you to deploy at some point. And they will all carry certain levels of risk.

    If neither of those things appeal, then the Forces are not for you.

    Forget it not leaving my son. I can barely go a day not seeing him without being very depressed so not seeing him for months is suicide.

    If you want to join just for learning experience, then you might as well join the ATC.

    Why on earth would anyone in their right mind consider the Armed Forces in such a scenario?

    Hahaha OP. Try the Foreign Legion perhaps?

    I don't think you understand what the Army does.

    Try the UOTC. They don't deploy. Do a bit of basic military field craft. Not much risk. Learn a few skills in bar crawling. Stay near to your house. If they reject you, try the CCF. Shouldn't be too taxing for you.

    Not much else you can do with that type of attitude.

    The forces isn't for you.

    But there are plenty of other ways you can learn a trade.

    Joining the armed forces whether as an OR or commissioning as an Officer means significant disruption to your life , for that you will be handsomely rewarded with pay, subsidised housing, a pension at a very young age if you do sufficient qualifying service and more CPD and qualifications than you can shake a stick at ( if you get off your arse and take advantage of them)

    Operational deployment is an inherent part of serving - if a role is none -deployable it's a civvie role simple as even if like some FTRS HC roles you wear a uniform and rank and are paid a percentage of the full Commitment pay for the rank. FTRS service requires prior regular or reserve full commitment service BTW as does MPGS.

    there are deployable civvie roles (EFI, Sponsored reserve etc)

    but none deployable serving roles ? forget it , there are certain trades who deploy less often but everyone from buckshee private / AB /AC to 2 or 3 Star General Officer is deployable.

    I don;t think anyone asserted that , just the OP wanting to have all the perks of service life without all the nasty things like deploying or taking part in a shooting war...

    OP,

    You wanted answers, so you're getting answers. Did you expect to join the Forces and just mooch around all day doing 9-5. It doesn't work like that I'm afraid.

    The OP has been banned after about 10 posts, which tells you all you need to know.
