Newbie!

Evening all,

OK so walking through Leeds one day last month on the usual dailly grind, I decided that I had spent enough time looking online at navy careers and went into AFCO.

I have my RT at Leeds on the 20th May & just wondered what happens from there, do I just do the test on that day and then await interview or would interview be on the same day?

any tips/advice much appreciated!

Cheers

Hey what do you want to go into? There are waiting times on the forum in the newbies section. Waiting time starts from passing rt. I've passed every thing, now waiting so I don't know anything really! But in the same boat as a lot of people just waiting.

Cheers all, I'm looking to join as a chef or steward (SM) so waiting times are slightly lower than ships but still looks like Im in for a long wait.... I'm sure it'll be worth it in the end :)

thanks again

Hey, have you considered temp working? The market is still quite good for agency workers, might be worth a try as quite a few end up being turned into permanent positions. I know 'reed' are quite good, they tend to get things moving pretty quickly, and cover a range of industries. Alternatively, a lot of retailers tend to advertise jobs online now rather than in store, so whilst probably not your dream job- something to tide you over until the good Navy shaped job comes along!

Good idea that Bee. Plus, retail is also a potentially good idea for me. The hours would fit alongside fitness training, rather than screw it up like wetherspoons (my now ex-employer) did. motivation dies hard after a 14hr shift ending at 3am lol

Not suprised at that time in the morning! 8O I prefer working in retail rather than when I worked with food & drink, people are gross, haha! But maybe register with an agency, and meanwhile look at ww.jobcentreplus.com and other sites, then you have all bases covered. Good luck!
