Royal Air Force

Royal Air ForceIf you want to know why Royal Air Force apprenticeships are ‘no ordinary jobs’, visit us at the Skills Show (17-19 November, NEC Birmingham). Our stand will feature the new ‘No Ordinary Job’ installation, with videos and dynamic information that bring to life the opportunities and benefits of a career with the air force. You can also enjoy one-on-one advice from experts in their field, and interact with our state-of-the art technology that shows the many routes on offer.

Apprentices can choose from 21 different roles – from engineering to hospitality & catering. You will receive the best training, as well as travelling the world, playing sport and performing an important part in the RAF. On average, salary is more than a double that of a civilian apprenticeship.

Other benefits include medical and dental care, free access to gym and sports facilities and great financial advantages, including low accommodation and meal costs, subsidised travel, and six weeks’ paid leave. For many, the lifestyle is a huge draw, as sports and adventurous training are actively encouraged, including regular climbing or sailing expeditions.

“We are recruiting now across a number of exciting roles and see the Skills Show as a great place to meet bright young people,” says Flight Lieutenant Sandra Watkins. “Careers with the Royal Air Force offer skills for life, and a unique chance to play a part in operations around the world.”
