RFA recruitment


Hello all.

Im thinking about joining the RFA. I have been out in civvie street now for 5 years and left the R.N in 2013. I had 13 years done before I banged my chit in and I left due to family commitments and was suck of drafty posting my Down South (4 times in 5 years).I starting to get itchie feet and miss the Andrew.

Can someone point me in tye right direction? Would I have to go back to Raleigh ir would I be able to keep my seniority?

I am a source branch comms rating and then a sea spec. My last draft was Fishery Protection so lots of experience in the PAC 22 as well at Tac-Comms and vusual signalling.

Thanks in advance.

Mo Mosely.
