RE-JOIN, RE-TRADE, TRANSFER

Civilian life not what you expected? Or are you currently serving and in need of a new challenge? The RLC could be your answer.

No matter whether you want to re-join, re-trade, or transfer to The RLC, you must find out if we have a vacancy in your preferred trade. All job opportunities in The RLC are listed in Official Army Vacancies List (OAVL).

The OAVL is designed to identify areas in which trade vacancies exist for interested personnel. The OAVL should be considered as a guide and if there is not a suitable employment opportunity listed, but the applicant has an expressed desire to join an alternative trade for which they are qualified, the case will be reviewed by the appropriate Manning Brick prior to the commencement of the application process.

The Regular Army Transfer policy and process is outlined in 2014DIN01-014 โ€“ Regular Army Transfer Policy and the form on which someone may apply is AF B241A.

Units have a key role in aiding successful transfers and must not delay or decline an application, irrespective of their current manning situation.

Just as army personnel may apply to transfer to the Royal Navy or Royal Air Force, the Army will also consider applications for transfer from the other Services.

For personnel currently serving the OVAL can be found on the Defence Intranet.

THE ARMY RESERVE

Reserve to Regular – Thinking of transferring from the Reserves to the Regular RLC? Look for job opportunities on the OAVL. The policy and process for applying to joining the Regular RLC, from the Reserves, is similar to the internal Regular Army Transfer policy and is contained within 2014DIN01-213. Applicants should apply to transfer on an AF B241B and units will be required to supply background details to enable APC career managers to make a decision.

Army Reserve Opportunities – The OAVL no longer displays Reserve opportunities. An Army Reserve Job List exists on the MS Web and ArmyNet. The lists shows all 30,000 Reserve positions and has a postcode look up to allow Reservists to see what jobs are available in their area. Further details can be found in ABN 16/15. The policy and process for Regular soldiers and officers transferring to the Army Reserve can be found in 2015DIN01-157.
