Long Beach Squadron 150 is seeking a Recruiter / Staffing Professional to become part of our all volunteer member supported 501(c)(3) non-profit organization chartered by Congress to be the US Air Force Auxiliary.

Do you have a desire to volunteer and serve your community a few evenings per month? Do you have an interest in becoming part of a Search & Rescue organization that saves numerous lives every year throughout Southern California and the United States?

Squadron 150 is constantly training and preparing their members for the skills necessary to provide emergency services to the public in a time of need.
