Pay after training: £17,485
Caterers run dining rooms and bars in Officers’ and Sergeants’ Messes. Trained in silver service, you’ll serve food and drinks to hotel and club standards, making sure that your customers have everything they need. As an RAF Caterer you’ll cover a far larger field of professional experience than your civilian counterparts could ever hope for.
Later in your career you’ll also have the opportunity to apply for a Cabin Crew role. The work is very similar to that of a civilian except that, instead of flying a regular route, you could be called on to go anywhere in the world, at any time. You might be bringing servicemen and women back to their families, or transporting the Prime Minister, or even helping to look after the Royal Family.
Career Prospects
You initially join the RAF for a period of 9 years. If you’ve joined without qualifications, after a year you’ll be eligible for promotion to Senior Aircraftman/woman when you pass a trade ability test. Further promotion to the rank of Corporal and beyond is by competitive selection.
Joining age: 16-35 Open to: Men and women Qualifications you need: 2 GCSEs/SCEs at Grade G/6 minimum or equivalent in English language and maths Qualifications you can gain: Apprenticeship in hospitality, including NVQ Level 2 in catering and hospitality (food and beverage service) Nationality: Citizen of the UK or the Republic of Ireland, or a Commonwealth citizen since birth
