Staff retention trends in the Royal Navy have remained stable with between 7.8% and 9.1% leaving annually over the last five years.

The Royal Navy has introduced a number of initiatives to improve retention. These include targeted retention incentives and career extensions along with rebalancing current uniformed roles ashore to sea-facing roles creating better predictability and stability for frontline personnel and their families.
