  • Hi?

    New to the forum, applied to the RFA as a deck officer cadet. Got my SIFT in a few days so thought I'd sign up to finish off all my cramming, litteraly got voice recordings of my self running off facts and information, actually managed to end up hating my own voice

    Work on your southern generic middle class accent as best as you can. That's my advice for RFA interviews.

        Have a look around the Rumration site as they have a whole section dedicated to the RFA....
        I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by.....

        All posts here represent my own opinion and not that of my employer.

          Already scoured rum ration, but thanks!

          Thought I'd join here as well, seeing as how if I'm successful I'll be with other cadets, not all from the RFA, so thought I'd get to know some!

            Might work at the interviews but it would set you apart as a bit odd when you got to sea. Most of the RFA are rather more regional, and a Scottish accent should stand you in good stead since the company is mostly run by Scots. Scousers need not apply though.

              Snazzy, will make sure to slip in my dad's a Scot, he'll crop up in the "why do you want to join" question anyway..

              Just to double check from my forum skimming;

              SIFT->AIB->BRNC->Fleetwood

              If I have the correct pipeline, anyone know the rough times between each stage? Would love it if I was able to be in early next year!

                I applied in May 2011 Did Sift in August and AIB in October and started BRNC in May 2012 and Start Fleetwood in 2 weeks although I know people that did AIB in Feb and got in in May, it depends on when the next availiable intake is when you pass your AIB.

                Good luck with it all and we had a Scouser a Scot a Northern Irish guy a Manc and a smattering of to be un placebale accents on my intake which was fun!

                I was receentley on Wave Ruler and I think ever senior officer was a Scot!

                  And why shouldn't Scousers apply Steve? Are them skirt wearing jocks intimidated by our awesomeness? haha

                    Sounds good, I only applied a few weeks ago, SIFT shot up fast as anything, here's to the rest of the process going as fast!

                    Had a look through the Fleetwood forum, by the sounds of it my years in military housing will come in useful!
