As an AeroSystems specialist, you will be responsible for leading your team and making technical decision when it matters most, managing the engineering activity of the RAFs fleet of technologically advanced aircraft. You will ensure the maintenance of weaponry, avionics and propulsion systems, airborne communications and ground support equipment ensuring our aircraft are ready to fly at all times. These are key roles in the delivery of Air Power.
You will receive world-class training, providing you with the skills to lead and manage large teams of highly skilled technicians. Your foundation tours are likely to include postings to RAF bases that are typically home to several squadrons of aircraft and support equipment; you will be leading teams of skilled non-commissioned officers and technicians, managing and directing their work as well as looking after their welfare.
The organisation provides RAF training packages and courses linked to outside professional bodies, actively supporting individual study programmes at every level. You could have opportunities to take Masters' degree courses, either full-time or part-time. As your career progresses, you will also be encouraged to join one of the Professional Engineering Institutions to attain Incorporated Engineer or Chartered Engineer professional status to allow you to take on some of the more challenging roles.
