There are graduate careers and then there are graduate challenges – we’d like to think we’re the latter. Our officers don’t just have good promotion prospects, they get competitive pay and world-class training, as well as six weeks’ paid holiday a year, subsidised food and accommodation, free healthcare, and free access to our sports facilities.

As well as specialist training, you’ll learn valuable leadership and management skills; you’ll also have the opportunity to take part in adventurous training such as rock climbing, skiing and sailing. As you develop your career, you’ll move on to face new challenges and opportunities for promotion – both in the UK and overseas.

Interested? If you think you’ve got what it takes to be an officer in the RAF, take a look at our support for applicants section to find out about the Officer and Aircrew Selection Centre and the 30-week Initial Officer Training course at the RAF College Cranwell.

We could sponsor you through sixth form and even university. Take a look at our page on sponsorship to find out more.

Healthcare in action

If you’ve just completed a relevant medical degree, the RAF can offer you a career filled with variety and adventure as well as first-class postgraduate and specialist training. Once you’ve been accepted, you’ll spend 11-weeks at the RAF College Cranwell doing the Initial Officer Training course.
