    leeblease. I'm not about to join the Navy, nor do I have an 'old soldier', but even I found this of interest. Well Done!

    ps I didn't pick up any grammatical errors, but I've been on the lager!

    Leeblease,

    Just read through your post, anticipating that you would need some corrective advice.

    You don't.

    Bloody good post, well done.

    How times have changed.
    When I joined in 1952, I walked into the recruiting office in Leeds and said; "I want to join the Navy."
    In less than a week I was in.

    Re: Guide To Application Process

    The shortest nowadays is generally 3 months from application to entry, the longest is about two years, it depends on the branch you're joining.
     
  14. Re: Guide To Application Process

    Just out of interest Ninja, which branches would take the longest for entry?

    I assume the more hands-on career paths would require more training and therefore take longer?

    It also mentions a "direct entry" option for graduates, which stages of the application process would this affect?

    Re: Guide To Application Process

    Assuming you refer to Officer waiting times, I have to confess I'm a bit hazy on specific waiting times, unlike ratings. Obviously the smaller the branch, the fewer the regular intakes. Graduate entry tends to be Medical, Engineering & Training Management Officer, but they have regular intakes because they do generic officer training (they already have the "trade".)

    Rather than give duff info, it's best to ask your specific OCLO, assuming you're actually in the selection process. If you tell me your intended trade, I'm happy to make a couple of calls to find out for you, if that helps.
