If you want to stamp your mark on something new then 614 (County of Glamorgan) Squadron could be the place to do it. As a RAF reservist, you will be supporting the RAF both in times of peace and war from the Ty Llewellyn Reserves Centre in Cardiff – the place where the RAF reserves’ presence in Wales is being re-established.

The new squadron will give the RAF General Support and there are a number of roles available to you to be a part of the returning RAF Reserve squadron, such as:


  • General Technician Electrical.
  • General Technician Mechanical.
  • Intelligence analysts.

What is the commitment?
614 Squadron trains for one weekend a month, with an additional two week annual training camp, often abroad. You should be willing and able to commit to a total of 27 days per year (although some Reservists undertake many more days’ annual training).


What is the reward?
You will be paid a similar daily rate of pay as the Regular RAF for all training plus travel expenses and receive an annual tax-free bounty if you complete the requisite number of training days per year.

The RAF reserves have a well-earned reputation for retaining their volunteers, this is down satisfaction derived from doing varied and exciting jobs and also the fact there is an active social life which Squadron members enjoy. There is also plenty of opportunity for adventure training which can include activities such as skiing, canoeing, mountain climbing and many more.
