    I've had an interview with the army and passed, just waiting on medical forms being completed and sent away then if everything is OK medical wise they'll give me the dates for assessment centre, however, I also registered my interest for a similar role in the RAF and I've just received an email now saying the role is open to apply for. Would it be okay to apply for the RAF as well as the Army or not ? I don't want to fail getting into the Army and not have a backup plan. Thanks for any advice in advance.

    Let's put it this way, there's nothing stopping you, although it'll make you look like you're wasting people's time if you have 2 applications going at the same time (I'm pretty sure on your application (AFCO Form 5), one of the question is "have you tried to apply for any other services/ have any pending applications).

    Before your actual ADSC and attestation, you should be fine.

    Personally, if that is what you're doing I'd speak with the RAF ASAP and see what they think.

    If it is the RAF you decide to apply for go, let your candidate support manager (and everyone else who's sponsored you ie: ACC/ AFCO) know as soon as practical before you get processed any further.

    As obvious as it sounds, don't lie either, or you will not get into anything.

    Hope this has helped shed some light for you.

    ..........

    If you want to be an accountant, no-one thinks twice about applying for multiple companies, because it's the sensible way to go about things.

    If you want to join the Armed Forces, there are only 3 'companies' to apply to. It is perfectly sensible to apply for more than one, if there are trades/branches you want to do in more than one Service.
