Welcome to the cutting edge
Our Submariners serve at the forefront of the Royal Navy’s technical capability, working together onboard as an elite team to provide world-leading military power and intelligence. Being a Submariner means belonging to a very exclusive club – you’ll develop your skills to the highest standards, and find yourself coming ashore to explore places that many people only ever dream of visiting.
To join the Submariners as a rating you must be between the age of 16-36 (you must join the RN before your 37th birthday).
To join as an Officer you must be 17, the upper age limit is job specific.
Our Submariners are highly-trained individuals, but life on board is all about teamwork and what you bring to that team. The variety of exciting roles on offer means that, wherever you skills lie, you’ll be an integral part of an exceptional crew. Choose an area that interests you to find out more.
