We are looking to recruit a number of Aviation Security Compliance Auditors.  The overall purpose of the job is to keep the public safe and secure when travelling. Your job will be to conduct security observations, inspections, audits and tests to establish whether security standards are acceptable, or whether rectification or enforcement action needs to be taken.  You will be sharing your findings at meetings and in reports that you create. Your working relationships will be with CEOs, business managers and staff on the ground. These stakeholders are part of a range of organisations: airlines/airports/cargo companies and inflight suppliers.  You will also travel to a variety of places, visiting different airports or companies so no two days will be the same.
