Hydrographic and Meterology Officer

Lion

Newbie
Hello,

I'm in the processing of joining as a Hydrographic and Meteorology officer and I'm currently preparing for my career discussion.

I was wondered if anyone could give me more information about the day to day role as a Hydrographic and Meteorology officer?
Any other information would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thank you for you responses, this has been extremely helpful!
Hi Lion,

I'm in the same boat as you so to speak, I'm also applying for HMO (with a view to specialising in Hydrography down the line) - I started my application in mid-March, around the time that COVID-19 became serious. I've got to the stage of submitting my medical form (minus eye test voucher) and the ACLO at my local AFCO has given me a call to make sure that any questions I had were answered initially. According the the ACLO, he said that from start to finish (so getting a date for phase 1 at BRNC) is about 12 months at the moment due to the ongoing crisis and that PJFTs and medicals can't be properly completed, but he also said don't be surprised that, once all the restrictions are lifted and a semblance of normality starts to kick in, applications start to get pushed through a bit quicker.

What stage are you at currently?

Hi The Man Said,

I'm also looking to specialise in Hydrography. I started the process around April last year and did have a lot of delays but I managed to complete my medical and PJFT in February. I'm currently preparing for my Career Discussion which is just before the AIB, which will be over Skype.
