Where you could work
- Deck branch
- Logistics branch
- Technical branch
A key part of the RFA’s role is the replenishment at sea operations that transfer supplies and fuel to Royal Navy warships. It takes a team of the most exceptional sailors on the planet to get to where we’re needed, and then to carry out the most complex maritime operations imaginable – in any conditions.
A sub branch of Deck is Communications.
Like any merchant navy, communication is key to the safety of our ships and the success of our operations. In the RFA it’s not just about signalling to civilian vessels and receiving weather information, however. Our lines of ‘comms’ can never go down - because the team of people who send our messages are playing an essential role in keeping the Royal Navy fighting fit.
