Manning Website

I'm at a loss (which doesn't take much)

There's a website, so I'm told, that gives you all kinds of manning stuff. I think this is the link

www.manning.raf.r.mil.uk

But I can't get to it from my computer and the address doesn't look right with that .r. in the middle.

Is it an intranet thing or am I using the wrong address or does nobody care about it anyways

And if you have used it, is it worth me spending this time to get onto it ?

Thanks as always

FFP

The r means it is a restricted network - you have to be in the office to get to the site. You can't access it from your home pc.

It is indeed an intranet site, and as a very non-admin type myself, I have to say it is very useful.

It is about a useful as mammaries on a halibut. The spreadsheet of officer appointments is routinely out of date or just plain wrong:
  • It does not show the future availability of the jobs, it only shows the jobs that are currently filled and ignores the gapped ones.
  • The job descriptions are not consistent ie SATCO appointments are variously described as 'SATCO', 'OC ATC Sqn', 'OIC ATC and Fire Sqn', etc making accurate searches tricky.
  • You cannot search for all the 'any branch' jobs accurately as the branch of the incumbent is shown in some of them - there are lots of Ops Spt (Any) jobs out there, but these are inconsistently identified.
