Intercept and analyse confidential information
‘In this job, you’re fully exposed to the real meaning of what being in the Armed Forces is all about.’
The RAF is seeking intelligent, ambitious graduates to join our worldwide team.
Are you quick on the uptake and fast to react? The RAF’s Intelligence Officers gather, analyse and provide defence intelligence – both in peace and war. It’s a highly specialised field that offers exciting opportunities within a fast-moving, international environment.
After completing your specialist training the opportunities are endless. You could be attached to the Tactical Imagery Wing, where you’ll manage the rapid interpretation of incoming reconnaissance imagery. You could be a Squadron Intelligence Officer producing intelligence assessments and briefing aircrews before their missions. You could be posted to the Joint Air Reconnaissance Intelligence Centre, or even to the Permanent Joint Headquarters, to assist in operational planning and management.
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 Intelligence Officers is at least £28,000 after training
