Warfare Officer Career Paths - Int?

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by Roco, Oct 26, 2009.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  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.


    P.S. I have been scouring Navy News for cryptic job adverts but to no avail
  2. 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.
  3. Don't let them get above their station

    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.
  5. Would this be intended to create a direct entry route or a warfare sub specialisation in the same way mine warfare is for example?
  6. Good news!
  7. God spare us, Naval Intelligence?!!!

    Do their Lordships know what minster this would create
