As a Logistics Officer, you will be a leader responsible for the management of a high number of service and civilian logistics personnel, a mixture of Drivers and Suppliers. Your role will be to support Station flying operations by providing a variety of transportation, including specialist vehicles. You will also be responsible for the management of all fuel and lubricants to the Station and the refuelling of all fast jet aircraft based there. You will manage elements of the whole supply chain including the purchasing and storage of equipment and fuel; logistics IT management systems; and global distribution by road, sea and air. You will be responsible for organising the airlift of equipment and troops worldwide and for delivering catering and hospitality services to the RAF, both in the UK and overseas.
Within your first couple of years, you could travel overseas for anything from a few days to a few months, either in support of operations or on exercise. You would gain experience at one of our UK flying stations or within an Air Combat Service Support Unit such as our Air Mobility Wing, Tactical Supply Wing, Expeditionary Logistics Squadron, Mobile Catering Squadron or Mechanical Transport Squadron, all of which provide essential overseas logistic support to air operations.
