Nursing Medical Officer

Hi, I was wondering if anyone can provide information regarding the "exceptional circumstances" that would allow someone to join up as a Nursing Medical Officer over the age of 39.

"Age on entry: 17-39 (exceptionally up to age 49)"

I'm asking this question on behalf of a family member as they have always had an interest in joining the Royal Navy, but due to circumstances and priorities hasn't had the opportunity to join up until recently. She has the qualifications and experience required for the role but she is 41.

Any information regarding this would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

Exceptional circumstances usually translates to:

1. If we have a dire shortage of skilled staff in this particular area.

2. The candidate has extensive experience in this particular area, has more than two years Post grad experience, can pass the Recruiting Test, Sift Interview, Medical Examination, Pre Joining Fitness Test, Admiralty Interview Board, Nurses Board and is considered ideal for this particular post & able to complete Officer training. At present, we are seeking Nurses with experience in Mental Health Nursing (no, it's not a wind-up).

The best bet is get in touch with your nearest AFCO, link below & ask for the telephone number to speak directly with the Nursing Officer's recruiter/appointer in Portsmouth Naval Base for specific guidance, as it is a specialist area of recruiting.

Good luck to her.
