Career opportunities in the Air Corps consist of other unique and exciting role such as Air Traffic Control, crash rescue, medical services, logistics and administration. Specialist Units such as our Communications and Information Services Squadron (CIS) deal with all matters pertaining to communications, navigation and information technology equipment and systems required by the Air Corps to discharge its assigned roles.
The Air Corps are seeking highly motivated and committed young men and women to join their team and they're currently recruiting general service recruits and intend on running cadetship and apprentice competitions later this year.
