Post interview and start dates

#1
Hi.

Communications Rating interview is 1 September.

Not one to get ahead of myself, but what happens after that?

When would I expect to do medical and if again if all ok at medical what is likely start date?

Thank you all.

I'm not going to tell you, this is the sort of thing you ask at interview.

Heck, it even gives you something to say when your asked if you've got any questions.

If successful you would have to get security clearance, medical, vaccinations if required, references. SC can take a while to come through. You'd be lucky to start end of November let alone September.

Ah ok cheers for the info! Does anyone know if there is a fixed start date though? Also what does the Security Clearance involve, is that like the Medical where we arrange it ourselves/go somewhere to answer some questions or is it all done automatically as it were?

A link to the SC website is sent to successful applicants. Doesn't take long to complete it online. It takes about 4 weeks to receive clearance judging by previous threads regarding SC.

Hey, sorry if Im being dense, but does that mean that the people who are going to interview this week/month would be looking at something around an April start date then?

They interviewed in January this year for courses starting in April and September this year. There could be a course starting in January next year if they are recruiting now. Like the RN, the RFA stopped recruitment for all rating roles for a while. They are now increasing manpower, hence the influx of interest on this forum over the last 18 months or so.
Give recruitment a call if you want to know likely start dates.

What was your interview like? Fingers crossed x
Seemed to go pretty well. Answered majority of questions comfortably. One or two had me stuck or I only knew part of the answer. Which I was disappointed with but hard to know everything they gonna ask I suppose.

Find out by mid October time.
