Daily Responsibilities as a Recruiter

When you are added to the Regimental Recruiting Department you become a part of the public face of the 7th Cavalry Regiment. As such, your conduct must be of the highest standard. All communications with the public must be professional and in accordance with our rules, regulations and Standard Operating Procedures.

As you are representing the unit officially, your steam name and any forum accounts you have on Reddit, Discord, Facebook, Bohemia or others must conform to the following; *=7Cav=RNK.Lastname.Initial or as close to this as possible. Some forums may limit special characters in account names. Variants of the regimental tag could be; 7Cav, [7Cav].

  • You are expected to monitor and stay current with communications in the department PM thread and the RRD discord.
  • When online and in Discord or Teamspeak, you are expected to monitor the Recruiting Offices. In particular, you must monitor the #recruitment and voice Recruiting Office channels in the official 7th Cavalry Discord.
  • You will have the [Recruiter] tag in teamspeak. This means new and potential recruits will seek you out with questions. If you are busy, i.e. in squad practice and can't assist them, you are expected to find someone else to help them. Otherwise you must assist them.
  • As a recruiter, in teamspeak you will have operator administrative access that allows you to move, kick or ban public members. You must not under any circumstances kick or ban a public member unless they clearly violate our Teamspeak 3 Code of Conduct and you have warned them. You have this access primarily so you can move potential recruits into Recruiting Offices.
  • If you come across a situation that has no SOP written for it, STOP. Do not make up something you think works. Report the situation to your lead or the NCOIC and they will create an SOP and advise you on what to do.
  • You must not under any circumstances recruit members from any game server except a 7th Cavalry Gaming hosted server.
    • If you are caught doing this on any other server other than 7th Cavalry hosted servers or official game servers, you will be removed from the Regimental Recruiting Department and be barred from returning.
  • When communicating with potential recruits, always, always, always be honest about the unit, its minimum requirements, rules & regulations and codes of conduct. We don't want to waste everyone's time by recruiting in people who don't agree with our values or rules and who will just immediately leave. We want qualified candidates who know what they are getting into before they take the plunge.
  • Do not make any promises in regards to rank, courses, positions etc.
