Hi I'm joining the RN as a CIS rating I'm just wondering is their any shore postings for this branch and where about in the world would they be?

Anywhere you find Royal Marines Barracks
All air stations
Get your green lid and go 148 and you could find yourself anywhere!

You'd be very unlikely to find an ET(WE)(CIS) at either of them unless he/she is employed out of branch. I think you are mixing up CTs and CIS!

Whitehall...probably.
Most commcens, including Whitehall, are manned by civvies now with the exception of Northwood probably. I suspect the majority of ET(WE)(CIS)1s and 2s will be employed in the Portsmouth / Devonport / Faslane areas when not on a ship.

Overseas possibilities are Gibraltar, Naples maybe Belgium and Norway. Not sure how many of these have ABs th0ugh.

Never seen a CIS at a RM unit or NAS (been based at CU, CLR and 42 CDO). Royal have their own signallers for come and the clerks do the DII stuff.

Saw a CIS badged female PO in the MOD Wyton guard last Remembrance Day.

I was trying to work out what CIS meant :)

ET(WE(CIS) - Shore locations: MCSU, the Maritime C5ISR Support Unit up at Portsdown Technology Park; HMS COLLINGWOOD (helpig deliver training); NCHQ (more likely at PO, CPO and WO); Potential for some to be employed in Cyber roles (especially CPTs based out of MCSU idc) and potential for some to support Maritime Information Exploitation Group (Portsmouth).
