The Royal Navy

The Interview

Agency: Engine Creative


The Royal Navy is launching a powerful new TV recruitment campaign focussing on the ways in which being a Royal Navy Engineer is about much more than just ‘fixing things’. The film focuses on the choice young people could have when entering the job market, a regular 9-5, or maybe something more exciting.

The ad, created by agency Engine Creative, called ‘The Interview’, follows real Royal Navy engineering technician Melanie as she is shown around an office by a new potential boss. The everyday work life in a normal office is juxtaposed with action shots of helicopters, team work, diving, sports with colleagues and the general excitement of an unpredictable and challenging job. Melanie then ditches fax machines, calculators and awkward office chat for adventure, fulfilment and satisfaction.

This professional campaign titled 'The Interview' was published in United Kingdom in June, 2022. It was created for the brand: The Royal Navy, by ad agency: Engine Creative. This Integrated medium campaign is related to the Military industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted almost 2 years ago.
