Hi all,
Currently a serving Royal Marine, in the process of transferring through the UY scheme. I have a couple of queries that I’d like advice on as the AIB is currently virtual due to Covid.
Firstly, will they really hone in on why I’m wanting to leave the Marines for the Navy? Secondly I’ve prepared a fair few interview answers that I’m likely to get asked, however I’ve hit a rut on ‘what is the difference between officers and other ranks”. Having been in for 5 years I’ve met some proper mongs at all levels so can’t really solidify a good answer. Also any further advice on anything is greatly welcomed, cheers!

Royal, I don't know how to break this to you......Firstly, will they really hone in on why I’m wanting to leave the Marines for the Navy? ..... but the Marines ARE part of the Navy. Best not mention that at your AIB.

If you have been in for 5 years, you should also have a fair idea of the CoC structure by now. Responsibilities etc.
 
Cheers for the reply! I’m aware my first question may of come across as though I am ill prepared or slightly thick, Yeah obviously I am aware we’re part of the Navy, I meant it as the blue side of the Navy. Again I know the rank structure very well, but I mainly wanted it for solidifying my answer, I know I’m in pretty good stead.. think it’s just last minute nerves.

officer = Senior management (management debatable though :))
SR (SNCO) = Middle management (management comment applies)
JR = worker bee (worker debatable)

As you say, there's spanners at every level where you think how the f*** did they get to that rate! ;)

Just eat a few crayons before the interview to calm the nerves - avoid the blue ones - and make sure the LBD fits perfectly!

Good luck! ;)
 
It is a little ironic I do admit! However, can’t knock a bloke for trying to better himself... the only stupid question was one that was never asked

There is no such thing as a stupid question.

There are, however, inappropriate ones.
