    So I have submitted my app and now I have an interview on the 18th. On my Navy dashboard the interview is called "Officer Interview 1" and there has not been a great deal information given to me apart from that. So I am wondering if this stage is just the NSRT and chat about my application or will this be the SIFT interview (I am assuming it is the former because I have only submitted my application and have not done anything else in the joining process). On top of this, what should I wear? I am planning to wear a suit there, or would that be overkill?

    Thanks for the help :)

    Usually Officer applicants have a career discussion after the NSRT, it's nit a formal interview, but as with any prospective job interview, it pays to prepare and look the part.

    The interview is to establish you know what you are about to undergo, the selection elements and what they involve, a rough overview of your motivation, service knowledge etc. Basically this is to identify your strengths & weaknesses in readiness to undertake the next stage of selection.

    When to attend the NSRT, there'll be people wearing flipflops, shorts & teeshirts. You'll not often see that attire in an RM Officer's Mess.

    I have also recently applied to be a Royal Marines Officer, I was told by my initial point of contact at my AFCO that they no longer do NSRT's for Officers as they should have the education anyway. I was told to just bring my certificates of education to my initial ACLO interview.

    Must admit, until you made this comment, I was completely unaware this had changed on August 13th.

    Unfortunately, I'm not alerted to changes in recruiting routine anymore, but having conducted a bit of background research, can confirm you are correct. I'll make thread to announce this change in procedure.
