Joining as HM

#1
Hi, I am joining as an HM.

My security was passed in July, still waiting though.

Two questions - anyone know how mcuh longer I will have to wait?

And can anyone give me some info on what life is like as an HM?

Cheers

hi- and congrats!
HM is a new branch created in the warfare family.
It is a cross between the old SR and METOC branches
I heard they were going to do that a while back, the Metoc's badge was changing, I had a friend who was the 'tester' for this. Didn't know it had gone through though.

Welcome and good luck!

If I ever make it as a Warfare Officer I hope to specialise as a HM too. I think it sounds like a fab job! Interacting with nature at its finest, surveying the oceans and coasts of the world, getting the chance (although a very slim one) to serve on HMS Endurance- what could be better?

I have heard it described as the fluffy side of the Navy but you will leave with qualifications recognised as a civilian. People such as the BAS actively seek out people who trained in the RN.

I think it sounds awesome, and if I get my commission I might be serving along side you one day in the not too distant future.

Good luck!!

I think it looks like a good area to work in.

It's a pity that it takes so long to get a date, I feel like I've been waiting forever!
