Hey I applied for the navy in 2009 but couldn't join due to my eyesight I have since had laser eye surgery to fix this. I currently work as a plumber, so was thinking of joining as a marine engineer surface fleet. When I originally did the recruitment test I scored high and the careers officer advised I applied for air engineer technician which I did however I failed the eyetest. Could any one tell me the current waiting list for these two jobs, marine engineer and air engineer technician? Also do you still sign up on an 18 years contract?
