What Are Current Shortage Branches?

Currently in the Mob and to be honest can't stand my current job in which I'm in phase 2. As such trying to change branch and have seen DO but he's gone on holiday whilst I come up with suggestions as to jobs that I might ask to transfer to

As such I'm wondering what roles are currently in shortage categories and would give me the most chance of changing. I'm currently CIS submarine and would like to stick with Subs. However I don't want to stick with engineering so only interested in Logsitics and if push comes to a shove warfare.

I'm currently looking hopefully at Writer Sub? Is that a shortage branch? If not which branches currently are shortage and offer the best opportunity for transfer?

@SubDub Why cant you stand your current role out of interest?

The CIS Submariner is the role I am applying for so it would be interesting to hear your opinions.

Thanks :)

Still in Phase 2?

You've really given the job a good try, haven't you?

Basic training bears NO resemblence to 'real life'. IMHO you haven't even tried yet. Man up.

With all due respect I think the fact that haven't got any aptitude towards the job, don't like the job and generally am an ill fit for it are fair points. Truth is it is my own future and I need to be on a job that will do me well when I leave and that I have at least some aptitude for.

If you have any aptitude towards engineering you will like it. It is a very long training pipeline but it's real taught and enjoyable if you like engineering. Unfortunately as it was a shortage branch a load of lads signed up expecting to be a operator whereas now it is engineering mostly. So be prepared for that. The role is Communications Engineer in pretty much everyway. Whether that is a good thing depends on whether you want to be a Comms Engineer. Its just not for me but you get decent quals and you will enjoy it as long as you are aware its basically a WE but focussed on Comms.

Thanks for the reply @SubDub :)

That is interesting as the original role I went for was the WE role but I didn't get the require grades (made a mistake on my test answering the wrong section!)

So if I understand correctly, You arent just dealing with signals and emails, but also the communication side of Weaponry? (whatever that may be)

Thanks again

You are WE specialised in Comms. Pre streamed so to speak. Word on the vine is that as new blood you wont be in the operator role at all. Its pretty much all engineering now. We literally do the complete WE basic training course. If you wanted WE I say go for it because essentially it is WE now.

Does rather beg the question who is going to do the actual comms...

As stated non-tech jobs in the submarine branch, such as Logistic roles are pretty much all shortage category, Chef being top of the hitlist.

If you joined as a CIS ET(WESM) and fancy going back to Raleigh for phase two training in the Logs branch, go for it and good luck, assuming you meet the recruit test score required for the job.

By engineering, do you mean fixing things or such? As in a technician basically. I find it all a little confusing. I thought you'd be sat at a console or some station actually doing Communications, but that things are becoming more SysAdmin like, due to the Networking; yet that would still be an "operator" thing, surely. I always wondered why both WEs and CIS say they deal with "Weapon" comms. Anyhow, thanks for sharing.
