Hello all,
I am new to this site but everyone seems to be pretty helpful so wondering if anyone can answer the questions I have.
I have only managed to find a couple of brief posts about this branch and am a bit confused so need help! I understand it has now been split into 2 different branches but could someone please tell me what the 2 seperate branches are? Also I would like to know how long the waiting list is for these jobs and if you have to wait does that mean you cant start the application process or do you join as a seaman and move into your desired field when space becomes available? Any answers appreciated,cheers.

You start out with what you choose whenever a date becomes available so no, you don't start as a seaman and then diversify. In the approximate waiting lists thread (at top of page) the waiting time for this trade/branch is listed at a massive 36 months. Information on this is probably going to be hard to obtain on this forum as it seems to be a specialised field limited to not many people - however, I may be entirely wrong and you should await better advice from more intelligent individuals.

I take it thats why i cant find much info on it then,even the navy website doesnt seem to have much info about it on there. So just to clarify you pass the application process THEN have to wait untill your specified field is available before you start training etc?sorry just want to know the process as best as possible!!Thanks for the reply.
P.S I know i might get grief but on the waiting time thread I dont know which abbreviation is for this branch.

Gman I do recommend that you get in touch with your nearest Royal Navy Careers Advisors as soon as you can. Do you know where they are?

They will guide you through the initial stages of your application to join - psychometric testing, interview, fitness test, medical, eyesight test etc.

If you get through all of these, you will be put on a waiting list for a place to start Basic Training at HMS Raleigh.

The Careers Offices do group presentations on a regular basis; why not ask when the next one is and start the ball rolling?

Thanks for the PDF lin but already read that and was hoping to find something a bit more in depth. I havent visited navy careers office yet because before i "officially" show my interest I want to pay off (small) debt I have and also need to vastly improve my fitness but cant properly start training yet as I am just getting over tendonitis, which i picked up working as a labourer and want to completely pass so I dont aggrevate it. Thanks again for the reply though still cleared up the application steps for me.

Gman,

There were two articles published in Navy News during 2008 focusing on the WS(HM) branch. The first article concentrated on the role of Hydrography and the second on Meteorology & Oceanography. Here be the way to ‘em:

Hydrography: http://publishing.yudu.com/A7njl/na...//www.navynews.co.uk/Archived-E-editions.aspx

Meteorology & Oceanography: http://publishing.yudu.com/Aankn/na...//www.navynews.co.uk/Archived-E-editions.aspx

I hope you find them enlightening. :wink:

All the best.
