    Hi,

    Have you been through your Resettlement Centre yet? They do a decent CV writing course. Not wanting to pick holes or anything, but your CV marks you down as an ideal employee of the MOD. You may want to think about losing all the military stuff (SA80 trained? Nobody out here needs that!)

    I'd advise thinking about the kind of job/company you want to work for, and tailoring your CV to suit. Your military experience is fine and dandy, but just write it down so a civilian can understand it, and make it relevant.

    Hope that helps a bit. Make your Resettlement Office your next point of call
    ..............possibly the best smiley in the world!

    And some objectives would be handy. What do you want to do when you leave the RN? Are you looking at Pt66 licensing. Staying rotary or moving down to fixed-wing?

    Em; I have to agree with the previous comments. I see a lot of soon-to-be-ex forces cvs and yours is typical. Unless you're going into the private security (mercenary) business lose the military stuff. First thing I look for is a licence or evidence of your intention to get one i.e. a list of modules completed or a plan to start. If you don't feel confident to start Pt 66 B modules, try and get an A licence course as resettlement. You need to remember that not all would be employers know service jargon - what trade are you? I can work it out but your average civvy Human Resource dept won't. Decide what you want to do - slab-wing, rotary, GA? - decide where you want to live but be prepared to be flexible, do some research on your potential employer and approach the right people - big boys have HR depts, GA and small companies aim for the Chief eng or similar. On the positive side, you're young, we're all old and decaying, you have time on your side.
    best of luck, PM me if you want any more waffle. 8.

    Thank you for all of your advice guys, it really helps! Having been in since I was 16, CV writing has never really been necessary!

    I would definately consider doing some licences, and I would prefer to stay Rotary but that does limit my choices some what. The offers I've had have all been those with military contracts (didn't realise the civvies were getting paid so much!)

    I shall leave this CV on here for a while, see what else comes up then speak to the resettlement centre when I get back off leave and submit my new improved version for your approval!

    Cheers guys,

    Em

    Limit your choices? There's plenty of choice really. Aberdeen: CHC, Bond Offshore, Bristow. East Coast: CHC. SAR: CHC Mid-UK to South:MacAlpines, Sloanes, Bond Air Services, Police Aviation Services, Premiair Aviation. Most of these, if you are willing to do your licenses (or have already started on your own accord) will help train you up if they deem you a suitable candidate.

    Best of luck.

    Talking Re: CV - Lynx Mechanic (currently serving in Royal Navy)

    Sorry guys, I am going to have to break most of your hearts.


    WE ARE NOT YOUNG ANYMORE

    However, even in my mid 30's, some older engineers still consider me to be a youngster. I take that as a compliment.
    I like simple things. It stops my brain from exploding.
