Why life in the RAF is ‘no ordinary job’

Gradcracker Summary:

This webinar captures a range of very different and remarkable stories from people who have chosen to pursue a career with the Royal Air Force.

We think these stories are really eye-opening, debunking misconceptions about life in the RAF – from having the flexibility to work from home, to gaining amazing experiences in places like Qatar and the Falklands. There is an immense variety of roles and once you join you will be able to experience many of them. The choice really is yours.

Our next webinar with the RAF will be held on 25th November 2021. To attend, register your interest here.
