Pay Benefits & Learning
Joining the Royal Navy is much more than just an exciting and fulfilling career. It’s also a well rewarded one giving civilian jobs a run for their money. What’s more, you’ll even start earning from the moment you enter basic training.
Typical starting salaries for ratings begin at £14,349 whereas officers start on a salary of £24,971.
As you progress in your role and move up the ranks you could earn anything from £17,767 up to £90,560 depending on your skills and qualifications.
What’s more, with some roles you can receive additional pay on top of your annual salary in the form of a ‘golden hello’ of up to £5,000, and other financial bonuses.
More than just a well paid job
The perks of being in the Royal Navy go far beyond pay. You’ll get first class and free medical and dental care, six weeks paid holiday, help with housing and education – as well as a fantastic pension that beats nearly anything a civilian employer could offer you.
