Would love to get in touch, but as I say have foolishly lost contact details. A bit of a long shot but if anyone knows them please let them know I am on this forum, the name's Beth living down in Cornwall. Thanks
Hi all. First post. Came across the above and thought that's us. OH has been in touch with Beth following an email from the good people at the lateral recruiting office. All appears to be going well with our move, OOS received last month for Auckland and EOI submitted. Now just waiting to see if we get an ITA. Due out of RN next July having submitted my notice. All quite scarry and a bit of a gamble but really looking fwd to the move.

Due out end of august 09. Not too worried about the ships I've managed to avoid them for the best part of my carreer. Just got to wait and see if I manage to sell the house now, should be a doddle in the current climateThanks DC for your kind words.

Hi everyone, we are just about to fill in our EOI, hopefully will get a swift reply and then move on to next stage. We should be over at Base Auckland Oct 2009 if all goes well. Good luck to all, and hope to meet up with you at some point! Beth, Rich and girls

Pleased to say we were selected from pool on Wed, now have to wait for ITA. We are due to be based in Auckland from October 2009. At that stage our girls will be 13 in the Nov and 12 in Jan 2010, does anyone know the choices of Secondary school in that area and when they will make the move, as I think it is later than over here. Any info regarding schooling and how soon we need to apply for a place would be really helpful. Getting really nervous now!! Beth, Rich, and girls.

Unhappy Re: RNZAF / RAF transfers.

Just to let you all know got a second email, this is to tell me that I did not get selected at this selection. But would like to keep your name on record for the next selection in 2009.
But hey I have only been waiting 4 year and getting old and bolder. LOL.

Regards

Stan Per Ardua.

Thought you like to see what they said, just worked out how to paste it,LOL.
Typical old fart.

Thank you for submitting your application to join the RNZAF as part of our Overseas Recruitment programme. We have now considered all applications submitted for the August 2008 Overseas Selection Board.

At this Selection Board, unfortunately your application was not selected for continuation to the next stage due to there currently being no vacancies within your trade and/or at your rank level. However, this situation may change in future and so we would like to hold your application over to the next Overseas Selection Board to be held February 2009. We can not give you any guarantee that vacancies will arise in your trade within this time frame, but if they do we would need an active application from you in order to considered you against any potential vacancy.

Accordingly, we would like your agreement to keep an active application open until the next Overseas Selection Board in February 2009. If you agree to this, please keep in contact with any changes to your personal details.

Thank you again for your interest in our recruitment programme and we hope that you will agree to continue with your application. If you choose not to continue with your application, we wish you all the best in your future career endeavours.

Thanks

Default Re: RNZAF / RAF transfers.

Hello,
A bit new to all this but am wondering if anyone could answer a bit of a personal question? Hubby has a job offer with RNZAF, but has had a bit of a depressing conversation with someone who went out to NZ with the NZ navy, couldn't manage financially and so came back. This guy apparently had no mortgage and had bought quite a big house and had savings too. We have no savings and would need a mortgage so was just wondering how do you find wages against cost of living? Don't want to be sitting in a shed admiring a lovely view but living on baked beans!
