It's a sad day when you have to come on to an internet forum for an answer just because your DO hasn't told you what you want to hear. There is every chance that you will be able to achieve a transfer IF THERE IS A SERVICE REQUIREMENT to do so. Many on here will have anecdotal evidence of it being possible "as my mate blah blah blah..." did it. Your branch manager has to be willing to release you as well as the NA(AH) branch manager being willing to accept you if he has shortfall that he needs to fill. Don't hold your breath. Buy yourself a lottery ticket as the odds are probably better.

Boxy, I have been shoreside for a year now, so slightly out of date, but there was a shortage of AB (I assume) specs when I was last afloat. As Drakey says there would be a requirement for any move to be beneficial to service requirements. I thought we were overborne (or at least up to scratch) with handlers, in which case your move would be doubtful, but I am only guessing as things change very quickly. If your DO is not helping try your DEPCO, if he won't help try speaking to your waterfront manning office to get some idea of manning levels of each branch. Good luck.

Have a look in BR3 about what you need to do and how to do it!! Any reason you want to be a Handler?? If you have the aptitude you could try Aircrewman!! They are a shortage branch and recruiting again!!
