I am stuck on a career choice of choosing between the police and the merchant navy (deck officer)
The Merchant Navy is good pay, has many benifits, however the only major downside is that you spend a considerable amount of time away from home.
The Police on the other hand has good pay but (i think) takes more time to increase with rank. Also you do come home every night (apart from night shifts of course).
So to be honest, I am not very sure which to choose, So if you could give me some advantages dis advantages reasons and possibly any further information that you can think of.
Thanks in advance.

If you are deciding on what you might do for the rest of your working life, is 'going home every night' really the criteria you base everything on? You need to do an awful lot more research.

I have done my reasearch, I was comparing it to the merchant navy because the done go home they stay on the ship at the end of there shift. And part of my reasearch is getting answers from people who have an idea of what I am on about on this site.

Check out the new combined Deck/ETO/Engine Cadet-Applicant, Cadet, and Officer forum!
There have been one or two sites like this that have become stale or sunk without a trace.
This site will do things differently, and try and bring together all those with an interest in careers and life in the 21st century British Merchant Navy to share insider info, help with parts of the training, and create a reference of tips that you won't find anywhere else. Eventually including a comprehensive wiki.
In order to keep the show on the road.
This forum is for...
...people who have:
a. ...been through the British nautical college system (and are thus able to offer informed advice); or,
b. ...are current students in the British nautical college system (and thus able to discuss training and coursework); or,
c. ...aspiring student cadets to enter that system (for whom most of this info should be of practical help).
