In a break from tradition, in which entry into the Royal Navy Police (RNP) cadre has been by sideways entry from RN branches, the Naval Service now offers Direct Entry Service Police as a career option.

Direct Entry and Inter Service Transfer (IST) candidates will be rated Leading Hand (LH) after an initial 65 week training pipeline and candidates from the RM, Army and RAF will also join the RNP as LH.

Applications can be accepted from next week (14th March).

All RNP candidates will be processed in the same way as other Rating candidates; however individuals will be required to complete a 2 day RNP Specialisation Selection Board which will held at HMS Excellent prior to PRNC(R). The 2 day selection board will consist of an interview, observation and group exercises, presentations, practical leadership tasks and physical testing to help determine a candidate’s aptitude for a Service Police role.

Minimum Age on Entry: 18
Maximum Age on Entry: 37
Nationality: British or British Dual Citizenship.
Qualifications: 2 x GCSE (English and Maths A – C) or equivalent.
Full UK Driving Licence required

Factsheet attached

Edited to reflect upper age limit reduced from 21 to 18.

This may seem slightly cynical of me, however, what are the chances of a younger applicant passing the selection board? My concern is that I suspect, naturally, id be outshone by the older applicants. Obviously this may not be the case but in any group exercises there is going to be natural leadership... I fail to see it being the youth of the group :oops:

Currently have an application in for CIS but this definitely floats my boat (or rather ship) much more!
 
I'm not sure this is a good idea, but given they're Supp 1, im not sure they'll have people queuing up to transfer either.

Wait for PTIs to be direct entry next...

Don't worry about the other applicants, it is not a scramble to see who eventually takes charge, every applicant will be afforded the opportunity to demonstrate their leadership potential, whilst the others have to play the part of a person being led.

The Recruiting Test score required for the branch is actually higher than some of the technical rating branches and higher than Engineering Officer. (Then again, all ratings branches require a higher recruit test score than engineering officer, I kid you not).

Ah well that is welcomed news! Obviously I don't know what I scored on my RT, all I know is the only job I didn't score enough for was Comms Tech.. Don't suppose you know how I'm fixed for RNP on that basis?

Are they that short of Eng officers they have lowered the standards that much? Must admit some I found hiding in Abbey Wood would have struggled with any form of leadership but good engineers?

It's difficult to advise definitively because although the "all-up" score is below Comms Tech, similar to ET(WE), the Reasoning & Literacy section scores are higher (same as Aircrewman). Best bet? Give your AFCO a call.

Yep, as long as they have an Engineering or Science degree, basic numeracy and literacy skills, a total of around 20-30 fingers and toes and an AIB pass, they're pretty much in.

Oh, and there's a £27,000 joining bounty.

'Reasoning & Literacy'? For crushers?...:rolleyes:

Even so, they'll be on £27,672 within 15 months of joining and a couple of grand up on a new entry graduate Officer entrant.

Not heard anything about PTIs but wonder whether the shore role needs to be wholly manned by servicemen & women.

to be fair. Reggies and more so, PTI's should have people wanting to do the job for what it is, not fearing losing a few quid a month (and it is not much)

Feel free to come chat to my division, and the PO Caterer's division whilst you're at it!
I get that, but they are not sideways entry branches as PTI/RNP are/were.
the NEM should mean their pay is protected anyway.....whether that impacts on new entrants, god knows.
again, you want people who want to do the job not those who are 'only' being an engineer because they can get an extra night out on the pop

I totally sympathise with the branch. It is almost like the Pay2000 fiasco in reverse and will undoubtedly cause division and dissent between branches once again. Why the hell they don't re-adopt the 'all of one company' flat rate of pay, the same as it currently is for Officers, I'll never know.
