Hi, I'm a University Student studying Computing Science at Newcastle University (Stage 2) and I've been seriously considering the Navy as a career for some time now; I've held off making any official moves due to wanting to explore other opportunities - but nothing appealing has presented itself so far. I have a few questions/concerns about the recruitment process before I pop down my local recruitment office. Firstly, as a CS student, I'm aware that Communications is probably the field I should be looking to work in. If anyone has any experience working in this area I'd love to hear their experiences, and what I can expect - or if there's any other areas I should be looking to apply my skills to in the Navy. Secondly, I have several tattoos, most are of no concern and are extremely well hidden. However I have a tattoo of some thorns which forms a sort of half-sleeve around my upper right arm (ending about an inch above the elbow) and continues up to spread onto some of my right chest and right shoulder. Should this be a concern when applying? Lastly, I am a practicing LaVeyan Satanist. I've done my research and come across the following article: BBC NEWS | UK | Navy approves first ever Satanist This means that although I'm sure I can't be discriminated against officially, I would naturally have some concerns over putting it down on paper when asked. Atheist is an adequate label; so should I keep it zipped when going through recruitment or would it literally make no difference to the process at all?
