About the role
S&S Techs have one of the most varied roles in the Defence Force. The name Safety and Surface has proud historical roots reaching back to its origins with the Royal Air Force of Great Britain.
However these days, Safety and Surface is essentially the banner for three aeronautical engineering specialisations carried out within our Air Force.
This is essential work to allow insertion of specialist operators, equipment and supplies into operational theatres, or to provide humanitarian aid and disaster relief.
This is necessary to protect our aircraft from the variety of environments we operate in and keep them looking great.
This is required to enable aircrew to carry out flying operations and keep our aircrew safe.
The work of S&S Techs requires exceptional care and attention to detail. Some of your work is on display every day, and the work hidden out of sight needs to be to the highest standard in order to save lives.
