Warfare Specialist job

Hard to sell it Civvie-side these days.

I agree - Probably one of the quickest ways to work yourself up the chain of command and earn some real spondulics.

Should you ever feel the need to come out though, you'll feel it on the job front.

I'm going for Medic Assistant or AET (Air Engineering Technician)

But we shouldn't be discouraging people if they want to be a Warfare specialist. If it's what they want to do then good luck, it's not like we don't need new ones when the old ones retire. :)

From what I've heard you do a lot of cleaning and decorating yes... but I'm sure all that would stop once you got promoted once or twice! :wink:

The Warfare trade basically attends to ships husbandry onboard, upkeep and such. So yes you will be de-rusting, sanding, painting and greasing every single part of the upper deck, lockers and such (when your not doing your actual trade or on watch). You go where ever your ship goes, no say in that unfortunately. However, you work hard and play hard and it's a good job to have under your belt!

I agree with Jenny, it's all good compared to washing and packing meat in a factory for 12 hours a day for a pittance!!!

I hope to God I get in because there's nothing else around my area apart from factory work and filling shelves!

I'm already buzzing at the thought of joining and even if I pass selection, I'm still a year, year and half away from going in!

Get yourself to the AFCO mate!!!

Oh well hear me offering you advice!! lol

Good luck mate!

I hope your pass with flying colors!

It will be good to see some new blood in the dark blue these days hope you do well at Raleigh. Don't forget, It may appear to be a strange world at first but hang in there! It's worth it in the end. Iv'e done five year now, going for my leading hands next month and would not trade a single day of it. Need any advice, hints or just a chat give me shout lads.

I agree, basic is meant go be a killer!

Although my basic was the Army one where I didn't want to be there and hated every minute of it... so it's bound to have gotten to me!

Although I imagine this time that it'll be a lot better for me if I get in, as I'm gonna be over-prepared, I'm gonna expect it to be worse and harder than Army training (Even though I've heard it's much easier), I'm gonna put 100% effort into it and most importantly, I've got no ties at home, no bird and no kids :D
