    Job description

    During peacetime, Royal Navy warships regularly have to provide high standards of official hospitality service in a range of situations - Royal visits, defence industry events and functions designed to forge good relationships with the armed forces of other countries around the world. These functions are organised and stage-managed by Stewards.

    We offer most people the security of a Full Career, which is 18 years or to age 40, whichever is later. Some people may have the opportunity to serve for longer, depending on their wishes and the needs of the Service. However, if you want to leave the Royal Navy, you can submit 12 months' notice two and a half years after the end end of your initial professional training. The exact length of this training period depends on the particular job you do and the level of training it requires. All new recruits have a right of discharge at 14 days notice after 4 weeks, within the first 6 months of service, regardless of career terms.

    On board

    "The advantage of being a steward in the Royal Navy is that you get to meet all the VIPs and Royalty as well as working very closely with the Officers. On a day to day basis I serve breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as every day accommodation management jobs."
