The Joining process

Well from what mario said a few days ago, from getting through the aplication process and selection to actually begining at Raleigh, 12 months.

Not sure if this question is in the right place but what is the average length of the application process for a Seaman Specialist.

Hi,

Currently the waiting time to get in as a Seaman Specialist is approx 12 months. The selection process itself will only take about 2/3 months.

One thing you need to be aware of is that the waiting time starts from the date you sit the recruit training test, not the date you put an application in. Therefore, the quicker you get the test done the quicker your entry date will come around.

Hope this answers your question.

thats quite a long time, also I cant seem to find the page on the website which tells you about the length of service in the navy, how long do you need to sign up for?

Taken directly from the seamanship page:

"However, if you want to leave the Royal Navy, you can submit 12 months' notice two and a half years after the end end of your initial professional training."

Nearly right Sentenashi!!

Your contact is as follows:-

Up to the age for 40 or for 18 years for those over 22 years of age.

Your short term options for leaving the RN are as follows:- you must stay for the first 28 days, you then have the option to give 2 weeks notice right up to 6 months of being in.

After that you then have to give a return of service which is:- the length of your part 1 training (9 weeks) plus part 2 training (4 months approx - dependant on the branch you join) plus 2 and a half years actual return of service (approx 3 to 3 and a half years) from that point right up to the end of your contract you then have to give 12 months notice.

This means that your minimum service is likely to be 4 to 4 and a half years.

Hope that all make sense
