Opening Times

08:30 - 16:30 Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays). An answer-machine will take your call out of normal office hours, please leave a message and a member of staff will contact you during the following working day.

It is recommended that you book an appointment especially if you are travelling some distance to see us or desire to fit your visit into your daily programme. Please allow a minimum of one hour at the AFCO, this will enable you to gather all the information you require and give the opportunity to view a DVD showing life in the Service.


A fortnightly presentation is given at the AFCO and a place on this can be booked by calling 08456 07 55 55. The team will respond by letter with an information pack and the AFFCO will respond with details of the date and location of the presentation for you. If you are unable to make this presentation, an informal chat can be arranged by calling the AFCO direct.

Area Careers Liaison Officers (ACLO's) visit the AFCO's in their area an average of 1 -2 times per fortnight, and are available to answer any questions or queries by appointment. Officer Entry is open to application to persons aged 16 - 33 (dependant on specialisation) who have, or are predicted to attain, 5 GCSE's at Grade C or above, which must include maths and English Language. A further requirement is for 180 UCAS points at A level or equivalent. ACLO's are available to give formal and informal presentations on Officer Careers to Schools, Colleges and Universities, and they have the same facilities for this as the AFCO staff. If you are interested in applying to serve in the Royal Navy or Royal Marines as an Officer, please contact our team on 08456 07 55 55.
