    For those interested, due to manning shortfalls within the regular service, trained ranks may apply to rejoin the Regular or Reserve Corps seamlessly up to 24 months after leaving the Regular service.

    Contact your nearest RMR Detachment or AFCO for details.

    Is this a permanent change or until recruiting numbers replenish ?

    My guess is it a measure implemented only for as long as there's a shortfall of trained ranks. How long it will last is anyone's guess but still not heard any mention of a rejoin bounty yet.

    Supposedly all ranks that have left in the last 2 years I believe will be getting a call and be asked about rejoining. Rumour is be offered 10000 grand (which is taxable) to serve a further 3 years.

    Not heard the £10K rumour yet, but it sounds plaisible. Wonder how many Royals will hand their chit in to get the £10k?

    I doubt many. As I said it's taxable, so it's not 10000 into your hand, and you've to do a ROS of 3 years. Equates to under 3000 a year if tax is taken into account!

    Not a permanent measure.

    10k for 5 years return to service is the current float, the problem is if the payment is offered to rejoins it needs to be offered to ranks currently servicing, which is the point where its being held up. I imagine when it is rolled out it will be offered to a particular segment of serving strength in the same way a retention payment was offered to retain ranks during the maritime boom! Interestingly the payment will be taxed as a bonus payment so HMRC will take a substantial chunk.

    Why have they got rid of the commitment bonus then now add this?

    I can’t beleive I missed this.

    But this is NOT being offered by RMR.

    It’s the Army Reserve that was offering this, the RMR mugged it off.

    Any ex regulars reading this, I encourage and reccomend you to look at joining other Reserve Units. The RMR has shocking admin and you will be a glorified taxi driver for Nods and achieve nothing.

    The Army Reserve is a far better service for admin, and understanding towards fulltime employment.

    Not now with the compulsory mobilisations happening every year because of the manning issues!

    I think the rmr should work as much as it can with the regular corps, but filling pids isn't what reserves are for imho :D

    It’s just rumours.

    The RMR can barely pay people what they are owed, and at the right time, let alone throwing “bonus’s” into the admin vortex of JPA aswell.

    No doubt when that proves to be more hassle than it’s worth, it will fall apart.

    I am still waiting on an outcome of the poor lads deployed now who were led to beleive it was compulsory. It was complete manipulation, and since it was called out, suddenly no one wants to talk about it.

    I wouldn’t mind deploying with RMR, but not for some Mickey Mouse event, not for some local/UK mainland glorified policing crap. And certainly not to sit on a unit and watch Jeremy Kyle. And Definately not without a bonus. Not to mention the lost time working, the overtime(which I wouldn’t be able to get or claim for), the experience, and the cost and time spent to retrain and get back to standard on return to my job. And all the disturbance of being away from family etc.

    RMR will continue to be in this limbo until someone’s higher up actually does their job and changes it. There’s some glaring problems woth RMR, and ones that are unique to RMR, and not other reserve forces.
