Good Career Opportunities
Excellent career opportunities. Benefits aren’t what they used to be but still good option for young people maybe lacking in opportunities to gain a trade.

Initially good
When you are young this is prefect, housing, average wage, social and lots of travel. This lifestyle becomes difficult to maintain the older and more settled you become.

Best years of my adult life
Been in for a while, it’s a great place to work if you’re highly motivated and want to join one of the armed forces. However, it’s not for everyone. You do still go away depending on what career you go for and you do get used to the lifestyle. Overall great experience and I would recommend it to anyone thinking of joining.

Fantastic opportunities, education and training.
A career with so much variety and opportunities, where you can learn, travel and develope. If you are thinking about taking a modern apprenticeship in engineering, the RAF is a great place to do it.

Starter Career
Good Starter career for an introduction into the security workspace, provided with accommodation and training helps younger workers. Unfortunately the MOD as a whole is losing a lot of its benefits.
