Service in the RAF Reserves is normally on a part-time basis. However, here, you will see Full-Time Reserve Service (FTRS), Additional Duties Commitment (ADC) and Volunteer Ex-Regular Reserve (VeRR) vacancies advertised.

These roles are open, in the main, to ex-Service personnel. The broad principle behind the FTRS, ADC and VeRR service is that personnel are recruited to make use of skills and competences they already hold (from regular or other Reserve service). Training requirements, therefore, tend to be nil or limited to simple refresher training.

The RAF offers a wide range of opportunities in the Reserves for civilians as well as ex-RAF.

This site covers vacancies specifically for those who have left regular or reserve service. Vacancies occur in the following categories:

Full Time Reserve Service (FTRS)

Personnel are recruited to make use of competencies they already hold from regular or other reserve service. Training requirements are therefore generally nil or limited to simple refresher training. Additionally, FTRS service offers periods of permanent service for auxiliary personnel to gain experience in the training they have received and in exceptional cases, to undertake regular training courses that are not offered in a modularised capacity. A reservist serving on FTRS terms will be offered a commitment for a specific post at a specified location

Additional Duties Commitment (ADC)

Personnel are recruited to make use of competencies they already hold from regular or other reserve service. Training requirements are therefore generally nil or limited to simple refresher training. Additionally, ADC service offers periods of service for auxiliary personnel to gain experience in the training they have received and in exceptional cases, to undertake regular training courses that are not offered in a modularised capacity.

Volunteer ex-Regular Reserve (VeRR)

The RAF has an ongoing requirement to provide augmentation and backfilling during contingent operations and to undertake specialist projects. One way of meeting this need is by employing VeRRs who, on leaving regular or reserve service, were identified as having the experience and skills which make them suitable for such duties, irrespective of whether they had a reserve liability within the terms of the RFA 96 and other regulations. VeRR posts are usually created for a minimum of 10 and a maximum of 90 days per year.
