The Naval Service utilises a wide range of initiatives, such as targeted marketing, specific recruitment events, career extensions and the use of retention incentives. There are also some specific mechanisms in place to attract recruits in specialist areas, such as staged remunerative awards to new entry Engineer Officers with relevant degrees and the Direct Entry Technician Scheme, a one year trial to recruit suitably qualified and experienced personnel from private industry.
