Royal Navy stewards

Hi, is there anyone here a steward, or was, in the navy?

Im hoping to go in as a MA, but im also interested in being a steward as my second choice. Seems like hard work with lots of diversity, and first aid. Plus more ship time.

Just wondered if anyone can share any experiences you may have had?. Does it require a high pass mark on the RT test like MA? Also is there a big waiting list? Its 8 months for MA at the mo.

Sorry for all the questions!

Cheers

I want to give a sensible answer so I apologise in advance but I really don't know much about the branch.... however if you are good at fluffing pillows, bit of a dab hand with the hoover and like polishing silver then am sure you're heading in the right direction.

You seem like a nice lad & can string a sentence together. Job satisfaction comes to mind. If you like following your mum around, clearing the dishes, vacuuming, waiting at table...................see where this is leading. Probably short career due to job satisfaction...........unless it floats your boat. How much training can you need for that?
Able to lay one place at table-Steward.
Two places at table-Leading Hand
Three places-Petty Officer
Etc. Branch known as the White Mafia.
However If you want a bit more:
If you want to operate equipment, bit of spanner work then many other branches to choose from. Better job satisfaction-oh course my opinion.
However at the top end of the food chain are the Artificers (Technicians-but oh so much more), many apply, God only chooses a few.

Retire to the bunker now.

Yup i thought as much! cheers just thought id get a general idea as to the job role and what people think! not very much it seems so far!.

TBH im just going to do my RT, see what mark i get and discuss my options from there. Thats the advice the Careers guy gave me. Just interesting to know more of what people who currently/have serve think of certain jobs.

Oh no im not gay, just curious,...er i mean just enquiring!.

Im actually a qualified engineer, so could go into that area.
Is there any other gay jobs i should dodge!?.

I have nothing against gays, i just like women. Suppose it would help being gay, joining the navy and all!.

Royaliggy,

I am a civillian from Civvy Street so have no knowledge of what Stewards do in the RN whatsoever, apart from fluffing pillows, laying tables, polishing silver, etc., though I'm sure most of them are in fact as straight as dried spagetti. By the sound of it you might prefer to train as a Butler as it is much better paid, you'd be sought after (particularly by Americans, who just love our accents - especially if you have one like mine) and more job security - plus of course the training.

Just a thought. Otherwise I should have though being a Medic would make more sense, frankly.

PS: I'm gay and I like women too - just not in the same bunk, unless fully clothed! :lol:

If only my sister had kept "her" skeleton from her Physio training at Cardiff - a real one incidentally - I could have sold it to you for your anatomy training! Ask one of the Medics like Andy what is involved in the training.

You`re in luck
We have our resident experts for all types of branch.

If you want to be part of a team and you have a good mechanical ability, see clanky.

If you have a brown nose, cry alot and are as queer as a concrete parachute, see nozzer (steve).AAC or whatever else he calls himself this week!!

If you want to be a medic see Andy but remember he`s never been to sea.


Best of luck Roy whatever you decide.
