Careers Fleet


Welcome to the sharp end of the Royal Navy. Joining the warfare branch puts you at the heart of the action – whether in times of combat or peacetime. Warfare jobs are some of the most challenging in the Royal Navy. But they’re also some of the most rewarding.

Experience the cutting edge

From combat operations and communications to environmental surveillance, you will have the opportunity to work with some of the world’s most advanced weapons and defensive systems.

Whether that’s using sophisticated radars to detect enemy aircraft. Sensitive sonars to find and clear mines. High speed satellite links to get vital information to the right people. Or even mapping sea depths, measuring the seabed and predicting the weather to help with successful amphibious landings.

Whatever you do, you’ll have an immediate impact on our combat operations. So if you’ve got the focus, resilience and the team spirit needed, take a look at the roles available below.
