    Warfare Officer SM after service

    What do SM Warfare Officers do after leaving the service? Assuming they've had a reasonably good career, may or may not have passed Perisher, and have retired from service but want to work still. My current role is Warfare Officer GS, but I am very intrigued by the Submarine Service and look...

    Warfare officers now need a degree but i have already applied??

    Hi guys, I have applied for the Royal Navy as a warfare officer and have my initial interview on friday. Whilst researching for the interview, I found that a requirement for warfare officer is that you must have a degree, which was not previously the case. I contacted recruitment and they said...

    Application advice?

    Hi guys, I’m currently in my first year of sixth form and looking to apply to the Royal Navy as a Warfare Officer for when I leave school. I’ve tried to find some guidance on the best time to apply, potentially looking for a Sep 22 intake, but couldn’t really find much - the AFCO couldn’t...

    Officer joining requirements

    Hi everyone, I was looking at the Warfare Intelligence Officer role and wanted to ask about the entry requirements. It says you need 72 UCAS points / 5 GCSE’s. All I was wondering was do you need both the UCAS points and the GCSE’s? I have over 72 UCAS points but not 5 GCSE’s so I was wondering...

    Submariner Sea Time?

    Hello I'm currently underway in my application for Warfare Officer (Submariner) and I was just wondering what sort of time I would spend at sea. I've read before that it is roughly 60% but would this still be the case today, what with the newer Astute's and current recruitment levels? Many thanks

    Joining as a Warfare Officer submarine v surface

    Hi Guys, I've recently started the application to hopefully become a Warfare Officer (surface). Whilst on the phone to my ACLO they said that surface WO was getting really over-saturated and for me to manage my expectations, however the submariner role would be significantly less competitive...

    How bad is the Aircrew Pilot/Observer Qualification pipeline?

    I'm currently getting fit/studying up to apply to the RN and I have family and friends currently in the navy, all having passed out of Dartmouth last year. What I have been hearing, however, is that pipeline for Pilot and Observer is pretty jam-packed and can take up to multi-year for...

    Good afternoon, I'm in the process of joining the RN as a Warfare Officer and I wanted to ask whether there were any jobs in the naval staff (i.e. supporting the Navy Board and the Admiralty Board) for officers in the Warfare branch and what these roles entail? The reason I ask is because I am...

    DGE Warfare Officer 2019 Application: My journey.

    I've seen others post about their journey through applications, and I thought that it might be helpful for others that are in my situation (and helpful for me to self reflect), if I shared my process too. A bit about me: I am a recent graduate (MA International Relations (East Asia), Durham)...

    So this week I passed my AIB with a near perfect score, the Board President said it was the best score he had seen from a potential Warfare candidate in a fair few years. He is also more than confident that I will be selected for the May intake. I was just wondering what happens now while I...

    Hello all, The thing that killed the cat is bugging me again so I thought I'd post about it here. While it'll be a while for me (hoping all goes to plan), I was just curious as to what happens to RNR officers once they've completed the initial training element? Only been told very vaguely and...

Would I be immediately made a divisional officer when I am placed on my first ship or is this only after the...
