This chap will be looking for a new job around the same time.

Doesn’t he have something lined up in Kigali? He’s forever trying to get a flight there.

Having had 2 brief visits to Kigali, there are definitely worse places to be (in UK / EU, never mind Africa).

There’s only one Satan, though, surely.

Let’s not forget many of us were all excited about Tony taking over from Dawn. Things could get even worse with this change. After all, who with any potential is going to want to take on the role of heading up an organisation that has lost its USP, is hemorrhaging volunteers, cancelling activities left right and centre to become a poor quality computer academy, has a collapsed supply chain, and no money?

this!

I recall much rejoicing the CAC would be “real” RAF being an engineer by trade rather than two admin-ers as we had prior to Tony (Dawn and Babs).
While they were both in post we saw an increase in…admin. we hoped to see a similar trend with Tony coming in seeing more “real” RAF experiences…not so

I’m hoping one of the RCs will be eligible and apply. NB: one of, not necessarily ‘any’ of!

What makes you think CAC will be replaced?

With budgets tight you could slim down by removing the role & having the CoS report direct into the Maj Gen in charge of reserves & cadet forces.

Depends on how long they’ve got left on their contract but would they have more influence or less influence?

With the regional commandants to be a good candidate they would need

  • A decent amount of time managing a volunteer organisation

  • willing to move to be near cranwell.

  • at the point in life where the challenge of the role will add interest to them rather than present a chore

& this is before personal qualities, skills & characteristics are taken into account.
