I'm still considering different branches in the Navy such as Warfare Specialist, Seaman Specialist and (if anyone has seen me on here before will know) Mine Clearance Diver. I have so far passed RT, PJFT, Interview, Medical, (well everything except PEDA for Diver). Now I have been told I could be in for a LONG wait for MCD and it is worth considering other branches. so says AFCO Could anyone tell me about career prospects after the Navy in branches such as Warfare Specialist and Seaman Specialist. Are these good branches to join? I have a fairly good education (Degree but not enough UCAS points for Officer entry, besides would rather join as rating anyway and work my way up) I'm quite an active person, diving, climbing, sailing etc and concerned WS is pretty much sat in front of a screen all day? Is this right? Would seaman specialist mean just painting/carrying out remedial work? Is there good prospects for promotion and further training? Thanks for info everyone, ps enjoy a joke an all that, but trying to get some genuine advice not just comments like "haha seaman specialist that sounds gay!"
