I used to lurk and occasional post here about 6/7 years ago now when I was a cadet (under a different name - and I say it’s has gotten a lot quieter on here…), and I’ve been looking to get involved again as staff.
I looked into it about a year ago (when I lived in a different part of the country) and I’ve lost some confidence as when I contacted my local squadrons I either didn’t get a response, or from the one squadron I did get a brief and awkward response from, they some what put me off when I went along for a visit by the staff’s sheer rudeness. I won’t go into details as it’s not relevant to this…
However I’ve started a new job so moved house and keen to try and get involved. I wanted to ask some current staff what the best way to go about it is? I’ve looked at my local squadrons websites (which have them), and most seem to be in the fortunate position of having a large compliment of staff already - would it be worth contacting the wing to ask which units may need an extra volunteer?
Briefly about me - mid twenties graduate just outside London. I was in the UOTC at university but decided a military career wasn’t for me. I still spend a couple of weeks every year with me old unit supporting their D of E efforts, but for various reasons Im unable to volunteer there full time.
Thanks in advance
