Job Description

The role

We are recruiting for several Surveyors, and for this particular position are looking to strengthen the existing expertise in Manufacturing Systems within the Production and Propulsion Sector. For this Gatwick based role, you will have completed a recognised aeronautical engineering apprenticeship or hold an HNC, HND or appropriate engineering degree, supplemented with experience in current manufacturing systems and technologies in a Part 21 or recognised aerospace supply chain environment.

Applications are particularly welcomed from candidates with a Manufacturing Engineering background as well as those from other roles who can demonstrate the necessary experience of production processes. 

What we are looking for

It is essential that you are a good communicator with the ability to evaluate, analyse and ensure compliance against safety objectives whilst remaining flexible and proportionate in your approach. You need a good knowledge of regulatory rules coupled with personal attributes to inspire and be influential within industry. Given the level of influencing and negotiation that the role requires, management experience would be advantageous but is not essential for the right candidate with the potential to develop.

You should have a good knowledge of current regulatory requirements, particularly EASA Part 21 and its advisory material as well as awareness of the Air Navigation Order and BCARs although detailed regulatory training will be provided.

Your experience of operating within an aviation Quality Management System will be matched by a good grasp of IT and Safety Management Systems used within the aviation industry. Current knowledge and experience of structured Problem Solving tools and techniques and of Lean and Concurrent Engineering practices current within aerospace manufacture will be a distinct advantage.

If you would like the opportunity to work for a regulatory authority respected worldwide and to influence the oversight of the civil aviation manufacturing sector in the UK, we would like to hear from you.

Interview dates: W/C 19th March 2018
