can someone explain to me some thing about this ( I think new branch ) being "outside " the service any info i get is gleaned from these hallowed pages or the RN official website, and there seems to be little reference to seaman specs on the ships web pages.
thanks

If you are referring to the newly formed Seaman Specialist branch then the job now entails Seamanship and the Tactical Communications element from the now defunct OM(C) aka XRO aka RO(T). If you need more detail let us know.

Not exact figures but the average Type 23 is likely to have 1 x PO Seaman Specialist, 4 x Leading Seaman Specs and 8 x AB Seaman Specs. However I have heard that the 8 x ABs may be increased to 10. This figures will need to be adjusted for other types of ship.

Our boy wanted to do Seamen specialist but failed on eyesight, one interesting point made by the recruiting guy was that they are on a lower pay scale don't know if this is in fact true or not.

Anyway its got to be a good line for pulling when they tell the girl in the nightclub what their job is "I'm a Semen specialist" or "I'm a leading seamen specialist" should have them rolling about in fits of laughter.

If I remember rightly, all branches with the exception of MA and Diver are in the lower pay band at AB level

I think that all branches affected by the recent NBPCP (CIS, WS, SEA and ET) will soon be the subject of job evaluation

NBPCP is ???? and what type of job evaluation?

NBPCP = The Navy Board Personnel Change Programme. In other words, the scheme that led to the formation of the Seaman Specialists, CIS, Warfare Specialists and ETs from the OM and WE/ME branches.

Job Evaluation determines whether your branch is on the upper or lower pay band.
