Quick Question

#1
Hello guys,

I'm currently in the process of waiting to join the Royal Navy as a writer and was wondering if anybody had any idea of the waiting time for this particular branch? I tried to find it under many threads but didn't find any decent answers, any sort of help would be great.

Assuming you have a mobile phone or house phone, you could give your local AFCO a "quick call".

Its now 12.32 so they will be open.

I should of asked earlier,

When i look up writer there doesn't seem to be much about the job itself. I asked my afco when i chose it if i would be involved in the physical side aswell (I'd like that to be the case). Is there anybody who is a Writer or also joining as a writer who could shed some light on the job and duties of it please?


Thanks

See the post from JFH, the bit about "afternoon ditting" should sort it out. The most physical thing you will probably do is go to the tea boat while ditting on or throw your phone out of the window because it wont log onto Facebook while someone is waiting for you to sort out there JPA while ditting on.

The branch is in the title. Much to the disgust of the old school you'll be infront of a keyboard & screen with HB pencil grades and erasers whispered in silent tones as black magic. You'll be assumed to be a expert on JPA and you'll find quickly you become one. Everyone from day one will expect you to be able to fill in their claim form for that banana or big mac they bought a Keele services. You will also be privy to alot of info which you can't talk about, but narrow your eyes with a sly smile in the mess.

As for wanting to be physical, wait until once your in.

I'm a WTR myself.

Mostly you have to deal with idiots asking bone questions. (I'm only kidding guys...)

You'll find that most of the work you do involves JPA. JPA is an absolute horror to work with, it's unreliable, on ship it's slow and it'll crash when you need it most.

However, it's not a bad job. Plenty of wets to be drunk, everyone will be friendly with you to get their warrant or expenses pushed through.

Any more questions just PM me.
