Why Royal Navy?

Pay

Regardless of your specialisation or role, you’ll be paid a competitive monthly salary from the day you start training. After that, how you progress is in your hands and because you’re rewarded on merit, your salary will develop as much as you want it to.

An enviable benefits package to match means that more of your money stays where it should be – in your pocket.

Travel

Unique experiences, travel and new challenges are a constant feature of life in the Royal Navy. With essential skills already under your belt, you’ll be making a vital contribution to the essential operations that help us protect our nation’s interests.

Benefits

A future in the Royal Navy means much more than a monthly salary. There’s a raft of practical perks too, because we believe in rewarding our people for what they do.

An excellent non-contributory pension scheme, six weeks of paid holiday every year and free medical and dental care are just the beginning.

Family

As you already know, life in the services can become demanding. That’s why we put so much effort into making sure the families of our servicemen and women are properly looked after.

Royal Navy Royal Marines Welfare (RNRMW) provides help, guidance and support to the families of everyone in the Naval Service, when and where they need it.

Qualifications and skills

This is your chance to use your existing discipline, teamwork, and problem-solving skills to get the most out of civilian and military life.

You’ll have opportunities to pass on your skills through leadership and mentoring, or use your existing service experience to open up specialist jobs and vocational qualifications. With our support and facilities, you can achieve your goals – whatever they may be.

Fitness

Staying fit and playing sport are essential to a successful future in the Royal Navy. You always need to be mentally and physically fit, because you’ll find yourself in physically challenging situations, on and off the sports field. So if you’re on shore or at sea, you’ll always have access to a free gym and sports facilities.
