Any ex Military Clerks had problems trying to get admin jobs on military camps through the civil service?
Hi just wondered if anyone has had this problem. I have applied for 3 jobs now on military camps for admin jobs through the civil service only to be told that my military experience along with my military qualifications gained are not recognised and therefore don't even get through the paper siv let alone to the interview stage. On reading the requirements it states that yts government experience meets their criteria and yet my 15 years clerical service in the military does not???

Hi I worked as a clerk but as a dependant. Can't you just get a job in a normal office or do you enjoy the military side of it. Try getting references etc. Don't understand how 15 years of experience can be seen as insufficient!!!
