Take control of the skies
‘The RAF uses really sophisticated technology. Our radar enables us to see the whole picture of what’s going on in the air and communicate this to pilots so they can decide how to deal with the situation.’
The RAF is seeking intelligent, ambitious graduates to join our worldwide team.
Aerospace Battle Managers are the guardians of the skies, both in aircraft and on the ground. You could find yourself patrolling the skies in a Sentry E-3D aircraft, deployed overseas with the UK’s Tactical Radar Unit, or observing the approaches to UK airspace from within in a high-tech operations room.
There are two types of Aerospace Battle Manager: Weapons, who deal directly with the control of our fighter aircraft, guiding them onto targets. And Systems, who monitor the wider air defence picture using sophisticated ground, sea and airborne systems.
A sharp mind and the ability to think quickly are essential for this role. You’ll need to be determined, reliable and ready for a challenge.
The RAF offers more than just a job; it offers an active, exciting lifestyle. Our primary mission is to defend our country, but we’re also called upon for countless other tasks, from Search and Rescue missions across the UK to supporting disaster relief operations all over the world.
You’ll have the chance to take part in adventurous training such as rock climbing, skiing and mountain biking. You’ll meet new people from all over the world and you’ll make friends you’ll keep for life.
You’ll be joining a high-tech, modern organisation with excellent opportunities for accelerated promotion, training and worldwide travel. We also offer six weeks’ paid holiday a year, subsidised food and accommodation, free medical and dental care, and free gym and sports facilities access. Starting pay for Aerospace Battle Managers is at least £28,000 after training
