Job Description

The role

We are recruiting for several Surveyors, and for this particular position are looking to supplement the existing expertise in Propulsion 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 relevant engine experience gained in a Design, Production or Maintenance organisation or in an AOC Holder environment with Continued Airworthiness experience related to current in-service engines.

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 regulatory requirements and advisory material, particularly the current EASA Part 21, Part 145 and Part M requirements 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 the certification of propulsion systems (initial or modification) or of recent developments in on-wing monitoring and control of maintenance cycles in Power by the Hour arrangements 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 in the propulsion sector in the UK, we would like to hear from you.

Interview dates: W/C 19th March 2018
