I thought quite a few people were cut at the filter to reduce the strain on the OASC?
Recruiting is currently high. They struggled to fill IOT 8. A lot of people were bumped from 10 to 9 to fill it up.
I think this is as good a place as any to loose my posting virginity, you should feel honoured Quiet Mason.
As i said to you the other night matey, the RAF is shrinking.
Its doing it on purpose to save money by tri-servicing a lot of careers. By next year we're going to have 41k personnel.
Definatly not. Alex Luis post of the month surely?
The RAF may be shrinking but recruiting is high due to the high PVR rate to name one reason.
And how do you know that IOT 10 is over full?! They'll still be recruiting for IOT 10 now.
PVR – Premature Voluntary Release
Basically what you do when you want to leave the services before your term of engagement is finished. Can take anything from 12-18 months from putting in your PVR before you’re released from the service.
A certain number of PVRs are factored into the need for recruiting. A high PVR rate means more people are leaving than expected.
Which is currently whats happening. Also compared to other years there aren't as many people wanting to join up (although it still seems like a lot!)
