Dream of flying like the Royal Family? Well, you could be in luck if you’re also looking for a new career.

The RAF is currently recruiting cabin crew to work on military versions of the popular Airbus A330 jet, as well as a BAe 146 aircraft. You would start initially working on the RAF’s A330-200 — officially known as the Multi-Role Tanker Transport Aircraft, which is primarily used for transporting troops to places across the globe.

After showing what you’re made of by delivering five-star service to the military, you could have the chance to move on to the smaller, more specialised BAe 146 aircraft. The aircraft is based at RAF Northolt, and working this beauty would give you the chance to serve no other than Her Majesty, The Queen.

The role itself is a 12-year contract and is similar to what you would expect in working in a civilian role for a commercial airline, but the training is quite a bit more intense at around 16 weeks. The main difference is that you would work one tour of duty in the sky, and then transfer into serving in military mess halls or even in outfield catering establishments.

The all-important salary would see you earning from £18,800 after completing training. Accommodation and healthcare is subsidised, and holiday allowance can be as much as six weeks in a year.
