In the RN, no two days are the same. You could be policing the world’s oceans, delivering humanitarian aid when natural or man-made disasters strike. No matter what job you do in the Royal Navy, you’ll be a key part in operations around the world.
Exciting. Rewarding. Fulfilling. your kind of career?
As a highly-trained Chef, you’ll be part of a busy team cooking and preparing first class food, making sure the ship’s company (which, on an assault ship, could be up to 900 people) receives three nutritious meals a day. It’s not just food preparation though, as you’ll also be involved in ordering and storing ingredients, managing the dining hall and food hygiene practices. During a port visit, you could even find yourself cooking for royalty. As part of the crew of a fighting ship, you’ll also be trained in firefighting, first aid and get involved in operations ranging from delivering humanitarian relief to being part of a boarding team searching other ships for smuggled goods.
It takes dedication, ambition and enthusiasm. But there is no better way to get a taste of a life without limits.
