Warfare Officer Career Paths - Int?

#1
I am aware of all the published career paths for the branch but I am also aware that there are a number of other paths which open up once in. I don't know how much it is possible to say on this forum but I was wondering what the opportunities are for officers to go down the intelligence route? For various reasons I see this as a career I would like to pursue both in service and beyond but it appears to be a small branch dominated (moreso than others) by ratings with the officers mostly coming up from the SUY route.

Thanks

P.S. I have been scouring Navy News for cryptic job adverts but to no avail

There are opportunities, ships intelligence officer is an OOW job, maybe your 2nd or 3rd job - you can express your interest at that stage but any significant role will probably come after PWO course.

There may be other routes but this is as far as I know the most common.

At the moment a paper describing a Maritime Intelligence branch is with the Navy Board for approval a decision is expected before Christmas. All the signs are positive for the creation of a new Warfare specialisation.

Would this be intended to create a direct entry route or a warfare sub specialisation in the same way mine warfare is for example?
