Squadron Leader Jan Burton, from the Intelligence Reserves Head Quarters at RAF Waddington, said: “A team of dedicated Reserve Recruiting Staff and members from each Squadron will be at each of our Information Days to speak to all those attending.

“The challenges a RAF Reserve faces offers them opportunities for personnel development they simply won’t find anywhere else. We are keen to speak to anyone who would like to learn more about what we do and I would encourage anyone who wishes to attend one of the Information Days to register their interest as soon as possible.”
