Hey guys I've had a little search and was curious about a few things. After lurking in the shadows of this website.... Bit like a stalker (practice for the job I call it others may say creeping) I've decided to post a thread. I am really interested in joining the boats it seems challenging but rewarding, a lot of my friends are stuck in 9-5s with finance firms and that just doesn't appeal to me. Anyway a few things, the one thing putting me off slightly is the living in Scotland aspect, from what I've read a lot of you guys tend to think it's 'well grim up north' is it all that bad around faslane? Is it a permanent move of could this be subject to change under a different government? I just wanted your thoughts on whether faslane was A that bad B a particularly good place to base the boats C whether it's a good idea to chuck all the eggs in one basket? The latter two were more out of interest. I appreciate it is a pretty trivial reason to not join, every other aspect of the job seems positive if not atleast interesting! Also with a lack of volunteers to man the boats surely sending us all to Scotland will only hinder recruitment? NOTE: I have nothing against Scotland.... But come on who wants to live there Also I apologise if these kind of things have been answered but I couldn't find much about just the fact that they are moving there.... Cheers for any help and have a Nice weekend fellas!
