HOW TO PASS THE RAF INTERVIEW By Richard McMunn

During the RAF selection process you will be required to sit a number of interviews depending on the choice of career you make. For some of the more technical or demanding posts you will be required to attend a specialist interview which will be at an RAF base. These can last up to three days depending on the career. This is also an opportunity for you to see what the job is like and meet some of the people you’d be expected to work with once you have passed your initial training.

The first interview, however, will be held at your local Armed Forces Careers Officer and will be undertaken with a member of the RAF recruitment team. The duration of the interview will very much depend on your responses to the questions. However, you can expect the interview to last for approximately 30 minutes. The questions that you will be assessed against during the initial interview will normally be taken from the following areas:

– The reasons why you want to join the RAF;

– What choice of career you are most interested in, the reason for choosing that career, and the skills you have to match the role;

– What information you already know about the RAF, its lifestyle and training;

– Information relating to your hobbies and interests including sporting/team activities;

– Any personal responsibilities that you currently have at home, in your education or at work;

– Information about your family and your partner and what they think about you joining.

– Information based around your initial application;

– Your experience of work and education;

– Your emotional stability and your maturity;

– Your drive and determination to succeed.

– Having a positive reaction to a disciplined environment and towards people in positions of authority.

In order to help you during your preparation allow me to provide you with a sample response to one of the more common interview questions.

SAMPLE RAF INTERVIEW QUESTION

Why do you want to join the Royal Air Force?

This is an almost guaranteed question during the selection interview so there should be no reason why you can’t answer it in a positive manner. Only you will know the real reason why you want to join but consider the following benefits before you construct your response:

– A career in the RAF presents a challenge that is not available in the majority of other jobs or careers;

– A career in the RAF will provide you with professional training and ongoing personal development;

– A career in the RAF will offer you the chance to work in a highly professional organisation that prides itself on high standards;

– The RAF is an organisation that people have a huge amount of respect for. Therefore those people who join it are very proud to be a part of such a team.

Try to display a good level of motivation when answering questions of this nature. The Royal Air Force is looking for people who want to become a professional member of their team and who understand their way of life. It should be your own decision to join the Royal Air Force and you should be attracted to what this career has to offer. If you have been pushed into joining by your family then you shouldn’t be there!

Here’s a sample response to this question to assist you.

Why do you want to join the Royal Air Force?

‘I have wanted to join the Royal Air Force for a couple of years now and I have been working very hard to pass selection. Having studied the RAF recruitment literature and the RAF website I am impressed by the professionalism and standards the service sets itself. I would like a career that is fulfilling, challenging and rewarding and I believe that the RAF would provide all of these. During my research I have spoken to serving members of the RAF and every single one of them has had positive things to say about the service. The fact that I would be improving my education and ending up with a trade is just another example of why I want to join the RAF.

Over the last few years I have become more aware of my own skills and qualities and I believe these would be very well suited to the RAF. I enjoy being away from home and I also like to take responsibility. For example, I was recently made captain of my football team and this involves organising team trips and fixtures. I am also a good team player and I like working with different groups of people who have different experiences in life. There is always something to learn in life and I would love to be a part of a service such as the RAF where I would be continually learning new skills.

I have seriously considered the implications that joining a service such as the RAF would have on both my personal life and social life and I have discussed these with my family and my partner. They have given me their full support and they promise to help me achieve my goal of joining the Royal Air Force. Even though I know the training will be hard I am certain I can pass it with flying colours and if I am successful I promise that I will work very hard to pass every exam.’

If you structure your responses in a positive and motivated manner then your chances of success will increase.
