Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by spur52, Oct 2, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I already have my joinng date for Raleigh as an ET(WE) but was now thinking that i might prefer to go as a warfare specialist. Does anyone know when it would be too late to change my branch of choice?
  2. about now :D
  3. I'll tell you what shippers, why don't you just apply for Brain Surgeon or Rocket Scientist now instead. Make a crap WE anyway.
  4. It was a simple question fella. No need for the sarcasm?

    Its a big choice to make thats all.

    I havent decided for sure i was just trying to find out some info.
  5. Oh my god, you want to be a window licking monge watching a washing machine go around and around, crack on fella.

    Maybe he's friends with chico?
  7. See your avatar? That's what you'll be doing in the ops room as a warfare specialist. When you're not doing that you'll enjoy being on the upper deck chipping and painting. Enjoy keeping the ship clean and tidy.
  8. It's not a cookie jar where you can pick and chose what you like when you like if you decide to change your mind. You need to speak to your AFCO soonest. WS and ET(WE) are very different jobs. You have to be found suitable for them and this will involve another interview to investigate your reasons for change. You cannot change your branch when you join HMS Raleigh. So if you're having doubts, do it now.
  9. You need to make your decision now. If you are having second thoughts then let your careers advisor know on Monday. But to back up what has been said earlier, you will need to do some of your selection again. You also need to understand that once in it's very hard to change jobs, so make sure you are one hundred percent sure on your choice. The difference between ET (WE) and Warfare Spec is vast, what do you want out of your navy career? Also think about what you can do after your navy career.


  10. Don't even think about changing to Warfare Specialist, if you have the aptitude and score for ET(WE).
    Leave warfare specialists to those not as gifted as yourself who cannot make the grade as an ET.
  11. What he said
    Unless you have a lobotomy booked stay with what you have been offered.
