Today’s modern Royal Air Force (RAF) is the UK’s aerial, peacekeeping and fighting force. It’s made up of full-time Regulars and spare-time Reserves who come from diverse backgrounds and work side-by-side to make a difference at home and abroad.
RAF Engineers play a vital role in allowing the RAF and wider Defence to deliver its outputs. Engineer Technicians ensure the maintenance operation of highly technical equipment, be it aircraft, support equipment or the wide range of information systems which a modern Air Force needs to operate successfully. RAF Engineer Officers lead teams of highly skilled Engineer Technicians, manage high-tech equipment and budgetary resources, as well as exercise professional engineering judgment in direct support of operations.
Our focus is to attract the best people and ensure they’re well taken care of during and after their service in the RAF. All RAF personnel gain from a highly competitive benefits package including;
- 6 weeks paid holiday per year
- Subsidised accommodation and food
- Free healthcare
- Education support
- Sporting opportunities and facilities
- Opportunities to travel
- Competitive pension
