RNR - Covid

devilish

Newbie
Hello there,

I was just wondering how the RNR are coping with COVID? Is anyone out there in the recruitment pipeline like myself? I am unsure as to whether RNR apps will be put on the back burner to get through the backlog of regular applications.

Are any RNR Units holding drill nights yet?

Thanks in advance

Drill nights are currently being held over Zoom/Teams/Skype/Carrier, Pigeon.

Most of the units are having a period of stand-down over August whilst plans are being made as to how best to attend physical training (and I don't mean PTI stuff, by that!).

Phase One things are very much at the fore-front of the planning, so your application should progress as much as any other. My constant mantra is always - Have you engaged with the unit you intend to join? If not you really should.

I’m in the application process. It seems to be moving along pretty well.

I applied late August and completed all basic forms pretty quickly. Had my interview and eye test mid Sept and sent off medical questionnaire. Had triage last week and now I’m currently waiting on face to face medical.

I was also due to attend my first drill night at my unit but with spikes in COVID cases it got postponed and is likely to be virtual again for a while.

Hard to say when I’ll complete phase 1 but all being well, medical sometime in Oct, PJFT in November and security clearance to come through in the meantime.

Glad to hear it's going well... hopefully you'll be able to get to some drill nights soon!

I've been in this process since early March and after Triage had some medical notes requested from my GP for an elbow injury 14 years ago! Try getting anything from a GP right now. 10 weeks and counting.....

I’m at same stage now. If you tick yes to anything on medical questionnaire they check it. I’ve pressed my GP to complete ASAP but who knows how long it’ll take!
