Recently been to my Sift interview and I know how bad the nerves were leading up to it so if anyone needs any info on the process so far just let me know
 
Hey! Not quite related to Sift, but how long after submitting your application initially did it take for them to contact you?

After I submitted I heard back within a month, can’t remember exactly how long. Then they try book you into the earlier RT available.

You have to set up the online portal on the website so they contact you in there to book an appointment. One you complete your test you find out on the day if you’ve passed. I then heard back from RFA confirming I had been put forward for Sift (where they consider whether I should be invited for interview) they will tell you in an email when the Sift is (example I passed in June, they told me Sift was end of June, had interview this month. Next Sift is October. After interview you wait up to 2 weeks to find out your decision and whether you’re going to receive your provisional offer. (Currently in those two weeks myself ) hope this helps
 
That's really descriptive and helpful, thank you so much for the information. The two weeks you're currently in sound like they must be kind of horrible with all the waiting. I hope you've passed, and I hope I'm in your position soon!

Hi,

I have my Interview for seaman apprentice on the 3rd of March. I’ve Tried my best to revise current deployments, ship names, the role of my trade, ranking system, and brief history of the RFA. Also basic interview questions etc. Is there any tips or advice you could give? I feel prepared but just making sure I’ve covered everything.

Have you read Navy News? There might be some recent articles about the RFA in there.

There was a part in the interview where you go over scenarios for example RAS, bringing the ship in and out to sea and what happens if there’s someone wrong in the middle of sea (Flooding etc) And What are your main roles in the these evolutions. I managed to answer them fine it’s just I didn’t see them coming. I had revised ship names and numbers etc and that had caught me off guard haha. Overall I’m pretty confident though.
