Possible that you won't get many answers giving any info to that question as it is a new trade stream and intelligence is not a good subject to be talking about on line.

There are a few posts about this. Give the search function a whirl, this is your first step in the world of intelligence.

This is not a direct entry branch as of yet, it is still sideways entry from those currently serving. There is expectation for direct entry to be joining RAL from Q2 2020. Take this with a pinch of salt though as there is no formal career progression, nor job roles allocated to it. There is still a lot of work ongoing to find out how we will employ and integrate them into the Tri-Service J1 structure.

The first tranche of lateral entrants were called in Nov 18, the second group earlier this month. Direct Entry for WS(Int) was opened up in Jul 18, when the recruiting instruction was invoked, with a first intake of 12 expected in Sep 20.

Steady State training for Warfare Specialist (Intelligence) is underway (15 weeks post Raleigh) and is on track to be rolled out in training year 19/20. Those currently accepted as WS(Int) are following a bespoke training pathway, which is tailored for each individual to reach OPS.

The need for WS(Int) was evident as we were using CT and EW personnel for tasks that they either weren't trained for and stopped them being employed properly on their principal tasks. If you look at how the RAF and Army employ intelligence specialists you'll get an idea for how we intend to deploy people, noting there will be a lot of work in shore locations such as MIFC in RAF Whyton, MIXG in Collingwood and in Battlestaffs afloat and ashore.

Postings are mainly shore based - RAF Wyton/Marham, MBS in Portsmouth, Northwood HQ. There are a few sea drafts but they are on the QE Carrier.

The INT branch is based on a triangle theory (eg - 35 ABs, 30 LHs, 20, POs, 15 CPOs and 5 WOs) and the word is promotion will be internal as and when there is a space (PO > CPO will then give a LH and AB chance to be promoted). For how long this takes is anyones game but with it being a new branch I can imagine it quite slow to start with.

Pay Supplement is under review although due to Army/RAF and RM INT specialisations being on Supp 3 then it is highly likely that the RN INT branch will join them on this.

Training - the RN has decided not to send personnel to JFC Chicksands for Phase 2 INT training where Army and RAF INT training takes place. RN Phase 2 training will instead take place at HMS Collingwood in order to maintain the maritime side of INT and some personnel will be expected to do the Royal Marine Combat Intelligence Course too down at Lympstone.
 
Military is split into 4 pay supplements depending on the job they do. Pilots etc are on 4, Engineers, CTs etc are on 3, EWs etc on 2 and then HMs, Chefs etc are on 1..

With the RAF/ARMY/RM Intelligence specialisations all on pay supplement 3 it is highly likely that the RN INT branch will follow the trend.

Thank you for the clarification. I was interested in the WI role but its good to know that it can come with good money as well even though it wasnt my main interest.
