...and white and some recruitment centres have been knocking blokes back at 32 instead of ‘start rt before 33rd birthday).
The recruiting organisation doesn't help itself in this area as they applied different criteria to age limits with ambiguous parameters such as "Max age 26 on entty" meaning up to and including 26th birthday and "Max age 32" meaning you must enter recruit training at least the day before your 33rd birthday.Well done for challenging the initial knock back. Understandably many others would have accepted what they were told.
I'm astonished that the age limit is apparently widely misunderstood.
I had a call with a switched on dig on the recruitment number mentioned earlier. He confirmed via his system and coc that I’m good to go providing I start rt the day before 33rd birthday (previous aus army service played no part). He also tried to apologise for ol’ jaded dig most likely paying me off this morning. A few things I need to do now, will keep posted on here for future reference to any other lost digs from aus who like it cold and wet
Good effort mate. I’m waiting to rejoin next year when my ROSO’s done down here. Townsville has made me want to come back to the UK as soon as possible hahahaUpdate:
