Recruitment Questions

My son has just completed the recruitment process and I wondered what happens from here? His recruiter phoned last week to say that SC was back and everything was a go. What should he expect to happen next? How long is the wait time for Warfare Specialist? Will he be sent a letter saying he has been accepted?

I hate to ask my son again as he gets slightly irritated with his mum asking again and again, "When are you going?" LOL

Thanks for any help.
 
Hi,

Currently there is a 12 months wait for warfare specialist. The entries that were being filled before our allocator proceeded on his summer leave are in Feb 2010. The waiting time is calculated on the date your son sat his recruiting test (as this is the formal application date). When your son reaches the top of the waiting list he will be allocated and an alert will be generated at his AFCO. They will then contact you with a date for joining HMS Raleigh. It's just a case of being patient, but giving his CA a ring every now and then will no harm.

He'll be on his way soon enough, enjoy your time with him at home before he heads off into the wide world on his adventures.

SM

:)

Thanks very much for the quick reply. He sat his test back in April, I think, so 4 months down. Don't get me wrong, I will miss him when he goes but it's hard to see him wait for so long when he is chomping at the bit to go! Mind you there are days when i wish Pressgangs were still around LOL By the way, what is CA?

To really wind him up, wait until he has sailed for sunny climes on his first ship, then write to him telling him you have moved home to a different part of the country, don't give him the new address and make sure that you put the old address on the top of the letter.

I wouldn't be so cruel! Well, no that bad anyways :eek: Was thinking about telling him that because he is a dual national, the US has introduced the draft and he has to go into the US Navy instead.

Thanks to all who replied to my question. You were all so helpful! Even though I was a US Navy wife for over 16 years, things are so different with the Royal Navy and I just needed a pointer in the right direction. Cheers again. :eek:

He hassled his CA yesterday about doing the RNAC and was told that he didn't have long enough and he's looking at the end of October as his date. Yeah, yeah, that will be right!
