an active job

Hi,
Im thinking of joining the Navy and I want to know what is the most active job on board a ship. I want something that will keep me occupied. I have thought about seaman specialist? what do you think, is this an active job. If not what would you suggest. I dont want something where you will be stuck behind a computer screen.
 
Hhhmmm!

Steward, because there will always be some Ossifer demanding a brew, and I can tell you're just the man to fetch it!

Not really a straight-forward question to answer. In my humble opinion the level of activity is very much dependent upon the attitude and willingness of the individual.

If they're lazy they will loaf no matter what the branch. If they're keen and want to get ahead then they will by default keep active because they're always doing something constructive.

Up to you I'm afraid Blue.

Try Royal Marine or Diver

Yep, that's exactly what I'd suggest too.

Chefs are kept busy & spend all their working day on their feet, Supply Chain logisticians do a fair bit of lifting & shifting, ET(ME) is fairly active when watchkeeping as they have to visit all compartments with machinery, so you are on the go for 4 hours solid twice every 24 hours.

But if you want to be extremely fit & active, then Marine or Diver is the best bet.

I've heard Captain is quite a busy job and has the potential to keep you not just occupied but also on your toes.


Is this a wind up? :rendeer: Just doesn't smell right.... :nemo:
