Leadership oppertunities before joining as officer

Spiced Buoy

I want to join the Royal Navy as an officer, but I don't have much leadership experience. What sort of things can I get involved with in order to accrue this experience? I feel like it will be a huge part of the selection process and having that experience would be a massive advantage, if not a prerequisite.

Cheers in advance.

To get you going, use the site search facility. I'm sure you aren't the first to feel the need for this info.

Cadet Forces Adult Volunteer is probably a good starter. Duke of Edinburgh award schemes also.

Very true ATG, but there is merit in asking about ways to boost your chances when you are going to be in competition with others for potentially limited places.

For the OP - prior experience will be considered in the application but as mentioned above, the testing will be on potential capability so be prepared to get stuck in and give it your all when the time comes.
