RAF sponsored profile
Today’s modern RAF is the UK’s aerial peacekeeping and fighting force. When it comes to recruitment our focus is attracting the best personnel as both full-time regulars and spare-time reserves. The RAF also offers a range of apprenticeships, scholarships and sponsorships to students to encourage their training and development whatever their age or educational background.
We offer over 50 roles from nursing to weapon technicians, drivers to regiment gunners. Whatever you’re into you’ll be sure to find a role that suits you and with world-class training and ongoing development there is always support on hand. Whether you’re interested in maintaining aircraft or cooking up a storm in a professional kitchen the opportunities open to students are many and varied.
The RAF is full of people who come from all walks of life and the bond that personnel develop is unique to the armed services. As well as the comradery, life in the RAF will entitle you to a highly competitive rewards package, opportunities for adventurous training, free gym membership and the opportunity to pursue a vast range of sports.
