Help keep the RAF fighting fit…
‘As an officer, it’s not only patients I care for – I also have to look after the people on my team. I really enjoy the management side of my job.’
The RAF is seeking intelligent, ambitious graduates to join our worldwide team.
A career in the Princess Mary’s Royal Air Force Nursing Service (PMRAFNS) offers you the kind of variety you’re unlikely to find anywhere else in the nursing profession. You could be working on a ward in Cyprus, in a specialist unit in the UK, or even 30,000 feet up in a Tristar aircraft on aeromedical evacuation duties.
You’ll provide high standards of nursing care to RAF personnel and their families, as well as members of other Services. And to keep your nursing skills sharp and offer plenty of scope for promotion, you’ll have access to the best training and the opportunity to try a new role every two to three years.
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 Nursing Officers is at least £28,000 after training
