Employment Opportunities and Qualifications for Warfare Intelligence Officer?

Seaman149

Newbie
Hi all, much as the title suggests. What are the employment opportunities and qualifications gained for a warfare intelligence officer? A big concern to me is how transferable, the skills and certs I gain in the Navy are to civvie street. What sort of jobs could you expect afterwards? Any idea on the certs and amount of personnel accountability would be appreciated.

Cheers

It's Wednesday. While it is nice to know what transferable skills you'll have when leaving the RN, on Monday you wrote 'It's nice to have preferences but obviously the needs of the Navy come first, life as a Diving Officer looks pretty gucci but have to manage expectations.' It is worth noting that I received lots of professional paper qualifications from the RN, however, these days this doesn't happen.

Here's an idea - since this is an UNOFFICIAL RN site, why not bimble (that's RN speak for stroll) along to your nearest AFCO and have a really good face to face chat with them?

You can tell them what you want (aka would like) and they can tell you what is possible / available, given you current and/or predicted qualifications and passing an AIB.

This, [mention]SONAR-BENDER [/mention] said it better. I was hoping he’d come along.

Aw shucks, TUVM!

Anyway, Seaman (not assuming you are male - oh no sirree, eh, maam, oh bollox) 149, why not give us all a clue as to your age and academic skillset.

I'm going for 15, some good GCSEs and a vivid imagination.

Recently I unfortunately failed FSB for RMO AIB. Now changing paths towards RNO.

I have spoken with my ACLO however, I want to gain as broad a perspective as possible. Given a few variables, it looks like Warfare Intelligence Officer is a path I could embark on.

I understand that the Navy has only just recently re-instated its Intelligence Service and as such the WIO role is a fastly developing one. Contrary to the images it conjures, WIO largely involves the processing, refinement and then production of information for senior ranking officers for all areas so they can make informed decisions. It covers aspects such as security and risk management. I understand that this is the sort of job opportunities that can be found outside the service.

If there is anything, you could advise, add or correct, it would be valued greatly.

I love a TLA! Have a chat with your ACLO to see if:
1. You’re suitable
2. You’re qualified
3. We are accepting entries at present
4. What the job entails, I’m sure he will put you in touch with the relevant INT sneaky dudes.

My oppo is an INT officer (commissioned from the lower deck as a WAFU no less). I could tell you what they do, I’d either have to kill you or you get cleared for Top Secret. Maybe [mention]alfred_the_great [/mention]
Could give the UNCLAS version?

I attended a very 'special' and important meeting once when I was T45 Project. So special that there was an illuminated red light outside the meeting room when in use! A lot of it centred around how important it was to comply with our friends across the pond. Codeword this and codeword that for the kit that was to be fitted in a compartment that cannot be named.

Despite having been PVd in the mob, at that time I was still waiting for my Big And Expensive SC to come through.

Some interesting searching on Google provided quite a few answers to the codewords........!

I was in the sonar world when SOSUS was a classified term, didn’t stop Tom Clancy writing about it.

He didn't always get it right - 'F19 Frisbee' in Red Storm Rising? Fell for the cover story along with everyone else until the F-117 came along. That's if it was a cover story ;)

He visited our ship in Baltimore - scruffy rich git with BO (god rest his soul!)

Seems like not much has been made official as they seem to be re-establishing a naval intelligence branch but no word has been made public.

My ACLO was supportive of the choice, have asked if he can patch me through to someone currently in the role so I can get a first hand perspective.

Did you find out any information regarding the employment opportunities after?
Also you don’t happen to know much about the sea time?

Also, sorry about the double message, but do you know if WO and WIO are oversubscribed, and if so what the wait time is like?
I’m waiting for a call from the AFCO, so will ask when they ring but thought I’d ask in case anyone knew. Thanks!
