RAF: Jaz

Jaz is an air and ground steward with the RAF

“I joined the RAF at 17, and by 21 I have been to over 20 countries, including Barbados, Canada, America, the Middle East, Cyprus, Africa and Jamaica. Outside of work, I have gained several qualifications, including an FA coaching qualification, which I use to coach football in the local community.”

“Having achieved a level 3 cabin crew apprenticeship diploma, I have enhanced my education by enrolling in courses and gaining additional qualifications; you can carry on your education and are supported throughout the process.”

“Also, through work, I have met royalty, dignitaries and politicians, not just from this country but from overseas, too. I have been responsible for the prime minister on board the aircraft and watched air-to-air refuelling above Canada when bringing the new F35 Lightnings back to the UK for the first time. I also achieved my static-line parachuting licence in Cyprus; an opportunity I would never have had as a civilian.”

The RAF has 23 different apprenticeships available. To find yours search ‘RAF Apprenticeships’
