Medical Assistant Role

I’m interested in joining, but have heard that the Medical Assistant role has been closed, does anyone know if this is definitely the case, and if so what other roles have priority to join sooner? Thanks

It's not showing as closed on the website.

If I were you, I would fill in the online form this evening.

PS Click on "Request Your Application".

Hi Corn,
The MA branch is definitely still recruiting. There is a bit of a wait at the moment. The surface fleet MA is a longer wait than the Subsurface route. As Soleil says, put a application in and once you are allocated to an Office the careers advisers will contact you.

Thank you for your replies. its the AFCO who told me they were no longer accepting MA‘s, so I am now going for the Marine Engineering role. It’s my understanding that this is a Fast Tracked role, so hopefully the process is quicker and I’ll be in before Christmas :D

If you originally opted for MA and that is the role which interests you most, I would be inclined to suggest that you speak to the CA again and just ask for clarification. Not only is MA still recruiting, as Jackthedusty is telling you, MA (SM) is on priority at the moment.

Can I check where your nearest large city is, so that I can make sure that you have the right number to call?

It would be a pity if you continued along the Engineering route based on a misapprehension and then found that the role wasn't what you had really wanted.
