Complete application files must be received by the 427 SOAS Recruiting and Selection Section no later than 1 February 2021. If you are unable to meet this deadline due to operational reasons, you may request an extension by contacting the Recruiting and Selection Section. Files will be evaluated in a competitive process and as such, not all applicants will be invited to complete subsequent phases.

Due to current COVID-19 protocols, travelling recruiting drives have been restricted. Options for squadron recruiters to visit individual wings and units are being analyzed and details will be made available when they have been determined.

IMPORTANT! The requirement to maintain operations security (OPSEC) throughout the application and selection process is paramount and as such, applicants should refrain from discussing their applications outside of their chain of command, partners, and close family members. This especially means avoiding any disclosure on social media!
