The Nigerian Navy has started the online application process for the 2022–2023 hiring drive.
Interested candidates can fill out an application form and submit it online by going to the Nigerian Navy’s recruitment website, Nigeriannavy.com.
Last week, the Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Adm. Awwal Gambo, announced the recruiting as part of his intentions to supply the necessary people for the naval operations, according to Commodore Adedotun Ayo-Vaughan, spokesperson for the Nigerian Navy.
In order to increase its human resources on a yearly basis, the Nigerian Navy has made recruiting and engagement of men and women a key priority, according to Ayo-Vaughan.
After six months of tough military training, 1,008 regular sailors recently received their diplomas from the Nigerian Navy Basic Training School (NNBTS) in Onne, Rivers, he said.
Ayo-Vaughan said that recruitments of personnel into the service were being carried out based on available resources and infrastructure.
He said that the recruitment was being handled expertly to ensure that people who served jail terms and those with questionable character were not recruited into the navy.
According to him, physical, medical, academic, and mental checks among other tests are also carried out to ensure only the best are recruited.
Ayo-Vaughan said applicants with school certificates must be between the age of 18 and 22 by January 2023, while those with higher qualifications must be between the age of 18 and 26.
The minimum age requirement for application is 18 and the maximum age is 35.
The minimum height for male applicants is 1.69 while the female is 1.65.
The academic qualifications for the 2022/2023 Nigerian Navy recruitment are SSCE, NECO, and NABTEB with 5 Credits including Maths and English.
Persons with Higher Qualifications ND, HND or BSC admitted based on the position applied for.
The next phase of recruitment will be an aptitude test that shortlisted candidates must sit for.
