RAF - Inspiration

(2:28 mins)

A short film featuring 7 service personnel who share their stories about what inspired them to join up. From being wowed by the Blues and their engineering skills, to finding inspiration at the University Air Squadron, they all dreamed of an exciting career; one where they can be challenged whilst travelling the world and meeting friends for life.


RAF - Benefits & Lifestyle

(2:36 mins)

Being inspired to join the RAF is one part of the journey, and this short film covers all the reasons why RAF personnel choose to stay. That is because, no other employer can match the RAF in its travel and adventurous training offers.

This compilation of interviews showcases 8 personnel. For them, meeting people and the strong camaraderie are incredible – it is a tight knit family. The job security is very strong –no matter what happens, the military will keep moving. The opportunities are endless – you just need to be pro-active. You might even get a chance to fly in a jet!


To sum up a career in the RAF

We have asked 7 personnel to summarise their career in 3 words. From being part of something bigger than yourself to travelling, the RAF can offer a much more exciting life than the civilian world.

Meeting likeminded people, taking your career to the next step and being paid well is what they love most about the RAF.
