RN to recruit the over 60s?

Interesting. Naval Careers Service FTRS personnel must usually retire aged 55...

I'd caution it's the Daily Mail making the claim and so far as I'm aware BR3(2) Chapter 18, article 1815 has yet to be amended that I'm aware of but exemptions can be made: http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/reference-library/br3vol2

Truth is, aged 55 now, I'd consider going back to sea if it took me to age 60 for the big whacks pension increase.

Vacancies and the application procedures are published each month on the FTRS page: http://www.royalnavy.mod.uk/useful-resources-and-information/ftrs
 


This is already doing the rounds on Facebook.

It would appear that it has been published in other papers too.

This has just been put up on Faecesbook, but may be a joke!




NNNNNNNNOOOOOOO - beaten to it by seconds by NM!!

Hi SB, there's an article in the Sunday Express too, sorry I can't seem to copy the link for you. Someone posted it on Facebook on a group I'm in.
 
Oh Well, RN is so short of surface ships they are scouring the planet for what were 'cast off's', such as Darings, Whitby's, Leander's and even type 15's....Lmao. Who else knows how to flash them up and steam them other than those over 60 years young piss stained (alegedly) stoker po's....like what I am:) :).

It's clearly a wind-up. Chiefs instructed not to shout too loudly? How the fcuk will some of us us be able to hear what they are bloody saying? Eh? Eh?
 
It's not a wind up. The RN is actively trying to attract ex Engineering Senior Rates up to the age of 60 to sign back up under FTRS contracts.

The poster is a wind up, the stories behind it are not!

The RN is actually asking ex-sailors to come back on 5 year contracts, but like the CPO's and PO's they made redundant in 2010 before asking them to come back, they'll be no chance of promotion, you'll get the shit jobs nobody else wants (evident in that people have left in droves) and will be pretty much told to suck it up. The RN is pretty much relying on the older generation having rose tinted glasses and missing messdeck life.

More likely the rest of the fleet. Papers are speculating on drafts seeing as we've got most the fleets manpower here in Rosyth along with me.
