The Royal Navy is one of the world’s most versatile fighting forces. Above and below the waves, on land and in the air, we represent and defend the UK’s interests at home and abroad. However, we deliver more than just military power; we help police the world’s oceans, enforcing trade sanctions and preventing drug trafficking. We provide humanitarian relief in places of crisis worldwide and conduct world-leading scientific research of the oceans. We achieve all this because we work as a team of dedicated professionals. You can be part of that team.
We’re looking for men and women from all backgrounds and various levels of education, on a full-time and reserve basis, for positions such as engineers and submariners, nurses, logisticians and in the Royal Marines and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. We are committed to ensuring everyone has equal opportunities for employment, training and advancement based solely on their merits and ability. By valuing diversity, individual skills and talents, we acknowledge our people are the most important factor in delivering operational effectiveness.
WHAT YOU’LL DO
As an Engineering Technician (Marine Engineering) (Submariner), you’re the driving force of the boat. It’s down to you to keep our submarines moving, deep below the surface. You’ll often be on highly sensitive operations, where avoiding detection is paramount. Without the power you provide, the vessel, and your crewmates, are stranded.
It takes a unique engineering effort for a crew of more than 100 people to stay submerged for months at a time. As well as maintaining the vessel’s nuclear reactor, you’ll play an important role in sustaining the water purification and air circulatory systems that make it possible for the submarine to dive.
