    Welcome to Rum Ration!

    I think that this is what you have in mind:

    What do you think?
  8. Hi Lily,

    Catering service is split into two sections Cheffing and stewarding. The chefs as you would expect deal with the cooking, planning, ordering of food. The Stewards deal with officers and do silver service at the table, bar work and generally look after the officers needs. In both cases you will have extra duties onboard that could be First Aid, Fire-fighting or damage control (Patching up of the ship). Chefs and Stewards tend to work in teams that will do days when they are duty and days off, so you will get plenty of time off when in foreign ports. When working ashore you tend to do the same roles but in the larger naval establishments around the country or even abroad. You get civilian qualifications throughout your service. At the end of your intial training you will have a modern apprenticeship and NVQ level 2 in the subject connected to your job. There are plenty of options when you leave the service to continue in this line of work.

    Hope that answers some of your questions
