Step 1 Eligibility Check

Age

  • 16 – 47 (Must attest before 48th birthday)

If you’re under 18 years of age, you’ll need consent from a parent or guardian before you apply.

Nationality

Be a citizen of the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland, holder of a dual UK/other nationality or have been a Commonwealth citizen from birth.

Whether or not you were born in the United Kingdom, you should have resided there for the 5 years immediately preceding your application. However, candidates with a minimum of 3 years will be considered.

Following the MOD announcement that the UK Armed Forces will now be able to recruit commonwealth citizens without the 5 year residency requirement, please note that the RAF continues to apply standard residency requirements for security clearance,  ie, DV employment requires 7-years UK residency immediately prior to enlistment; SC requires 3-years. 

Qualifications

You must have or gain Functional Skills (FS) qualifications in English and Mathematics during initial RAF training. As a RAF Regiment Gunner you will undertake and have to pass these FS tests as part of your combined Gunner basic recruit and trade training course. Even if you have other qualifications in Mathematics and English (like GCSE/SCEs), you will still have to take and pass the FS Mathematics and English tests.
