Squadrons with this role: RAF Woodvale – Merseyside, RAF Halton - Buckinghamshire
The RAF Reserves will pay you while you undergo training. We’ll even contribute towards your travel costs from home to your local place of duty. You’ll also receive a tax-free lump sum (called a ‘training bounty’), provided you complete your annual training commitment to the RAF Reserves. Currently, the amount starts at £428 in your first year and rises to £1,691 after five years’ service.
Once you join, you’ll be paid a daily rate which is determined by your rank, your role and your level of experience.
Our Media Operations Reservists provide the RAF with specialist skills and expertise in media and journalism.
As a Media Operations Officer, you could be producing stories for magazines and newspapers or putting together audio and video clips about service personnel. Because RAF operations often happen at short notice in distant parts of the world, media or broadcasting stations may not be able to get there, so you could be gathering material to send back to media stations in the UK.
You will also play an important role in giving officers of all ranks vital media advice and training – helping them to cope with the pressures of being in front of a microphone, a camera or a room full of people.
Joining age: (18–50) (or up to 56 with previous military experience)
Open to : Men and women
Qualifications you need : 2 A-levels or 3 Highers or equivalent, plus 5 GCSE/SCEs at Grade C/2 minimum or equivalent, including English language and maths.
Nationality: Citizen of the UK or the Republic of Ireland, or a Commonwealth citizen since birth.
