From the RAF to Delivery Management

Nick spent six years in the RAF after joining straight from school. Now he’s a Delivery Management Co-ordinator based in Bracknell, and he spends his time managing the logistics of connecting fixed lines to Travis Perkins sites around the country.

Nick didn’t have any specific technology experience before joining Vodafone. But he had plenty of logistics knowledge from supporting Chinook helicopters in their missions in the field, both in the UK and overseas – often transporting service men and women from across the forces back to base.

The experience of leaving the RAF and joining Vodafone is still fresh in Nick’s mind.  “There are actually a lot of similarities between the two, like having a really clear career path,” he told us “But it’s the little differences you notice the most – like not having to wear a uniform, and not having to shave every day!”

Our career paths

We believe that knowing there’s a clear path you can follow is vital. Here are a few examples of the careers that will use of the skills you’ve honed in the military and allow you to learn new ones. We encourage applications from all backgrounds, so search and apply for our current vacancies.
