HIGH PRIORITY ROLE?

#1
Could anyone explain the reasons for some roles being high priority? the reason behind the lack of numbers in the HP branches job roles?

Which ones do you mean?

I'm not a recruiter but I would think it would help those who are able to assist you if you could be more specific.

Quite simply, the fact that a branch is high priority is due to a shortage or predicted shortage of manpower on the trained strength.

Numbers of applicants fluctuate each week and sometimes a branch manager decides they need to increase manning levels due to predicted increases in operational billets. For example the recent announcement of orders being placed for new frigates. The fact a job has a short waiting list doesn't automatically mean it's because it isn't a popular job or because people are quitting due to changes in terms and conditions.

@Ninja_Stoker so its just down to predicting manpower basically? I'm guessing warfare is one of the largest departments, dose it mean that warfare is getting bigger who just simply more people leaving from that branch?

Good question. The fact is there are not enough applicants wishing to join the branch, hence the short wait to join.

The continuous attitude surveys do not indicate that those leaving the Warfare Specialist branch are any more dissatisfied than those leaving other branches, so far as I'm aware. The 'average' sailor serves around six years and applications to join are down across the board in general rather than an increased outflow. Warfare is indeed one of the largest branches, so a shortfall of applicants in numerical terms will naturally reduce waiting times to join.

So outflow has not changed but applications to join are down, out of interest is this a common thing which happens over the years? As numbers coming in are down would this affect class sizes at Raleigh?

Hawk11 appears to have an agenda.

High priority roles, numbers in/out, number of applicants, class sizes at Raleigh. WHY?

Ahh you've got me, Moscow won't be happy with my report.

@Drakey Why not allways good to have some in depth information. Interviews coming up soon.
Those subjects don't come up at interview as it is job specific. If you do "some other research" using he SEARCH facility you would know that. Bluff called.

I still don't believe you. See the post above this one.
