I have been offered the CIS Role

Hello everyone

I am a brand new member here and have tried to find out the relevant info but there are just some things I was still wondering so thought I'd post here.

This week I went to do my RT and unfortunately I mucked up the engineering part by answering the wrong questions in the wrong answer area, so it meant that I was not able to do the WE role that I really wanted (although I was offered a resit in one months time as it was an accident they said they could see where I went wrong with).

I was offered a few other positions to move forward with though such as warfare and also the CIS positions.

I am a bit gutted as neither of these 2 really excited me to much orginally but I think I am going to go ahead with the CIS.

The reason that I wanted to apply for the WE Role was because of the opportunity to learn a trade that I could also then apply on the outside world. in this case engineering.

My question is for the CIS job is their any skills that you learn for the outside world and what sort of jobs on the outside could you expect to go for based on your skills and experience as a CIS?

Sorry if this sounds like a silly question but any advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Wait and resit; it's only a month.

Don't apply for a role you don't like the look of, solely because it might get you in the Royal Navy sooner.

If you want to be a WE, it's worth waiting that month to resit. If you still don't meet the RT score, you can consider your options then.
 
Thanks for your responses guys.

Does anyone know or have experience in what the CIS job could lead to in the civilian world in terms of job opportunities?

I'm looking to stay in the navy for a good period of time but it's very useful to be able to picture where you could end up in the future.

Thanks again for any responses
