Gents/Ladies, I am thinking about joining the RNR and would just like to ask a couple of questions about HUMINT specialist training. Firstly, if I managed to get through the basic training/pass the fitness tests, etc. what are the chances of then getting onto training in this area? Is there a lot of demand? Considering that I am an old git (38) is this realistic? I work as a translator (French and Swedish) and would like to use and develop my language skills and serve my country. Is there much demand for linguists in the navy? I see on the website that you can enter this specialisation by "direct entry". What does this mean? Sorry about all the questions, but would appreciate any answers.
