As an Intelligence Analyst (Linguist) (Int An (L)) you will find yourself working within a highly trained team, who have the important responsibility of providing timely intelligence to military forces deployed on operations around the world.
Int An (L)s play a vital role in protecting the security of UK, National and International interests by interpreting, analysing and disseminating intelligence. You will listen to intercepted foreign voice transmissions, using state-of-the-art receiving and recording systems. From this you will provide valuable intelligence about actual or potential enemies and their strengths, weaknesses, movements and locations. There is also the opportunity to act as an interpreter for troops on the ground, translating from native speakers. You will learn at least one foreign language to a high degree of proficiency, and will spend much of your RAF life honing these skills or learning new ones.
Whatever role you are employed in, your contribution will be vital to success by supporting operations across the globe and assisting senior commanders in making key decisions.
