Job Description

The Role

Are you passionate about air safety? Would you like a job that enables you to make a real contribution to air operations in the UK? Read on to find out more about our new opportunity within our Safety and Airspace Regulation Group (SARG).

This is a new and unique role where you’ll be reporting to the Future System Development Lead assisting in delivering full Electronic Conspicuity deployment in the UK. This initiative is to ensure that everything that is airborne is seen by others using electronic devices. You can find out more information on our website - https://www.caa.co.uk/General-aviation/Aircraft-ownership-and-maintenance/Electronic-Conspicuity-devices/ 

You’ll also act as the main contact engaging with relevant stakeholders to fulfil the UK’s requirement with respect to the Local Single Sky Implementation Plan (LSSIP).  You will support the Team in meeting our contribution to the ‘Airspace Technology Delivery Group’ as part of the Airspace Modernisation Strategy. You’ll focus on the flying community, including liaising with pilots in trial work for technology, to work out their specific needs, how they operate and what their priority areas are.

About You

In this role you’ll need to be comfortable working autonomously at times. You’ll also need to be capable of holding robust conversations internally and externally in order to promote effective engagement between the CAA and its stakeholders.

Ideally, you’ll have an engineering degree or equivalent, with knowledge on avionics, technical aviation and systems engineering. Some knowledge on the needs and impacts of a growing UAS market will be beneficial but not essential. An understanding of UK General Aviation needs and operations is desirable.  

Additional Information

You’ll be based in our Gatwick office but will regularly travel two or three times a month to various locations. This will mainly be UK travel including by rail and plane, as well as some international travel within Europe as and when needed. In this role you’ll be able to work flexibly between the office, home and remotely.
