Job Description

The role

Our Air Traffic Management Operations Inspectors enjoy a rare level of senior executive contact and influence across the full spectrum of the Air Traffic Management industry. Drawing upon your valuable skills and expertise that you’ve gained across your career, this role will give you the opportunity to make a real difference to the standard and performance of air traffic service provision at the UK’s Air Traffic Control Centres and Airports. 

As a focal point for the oversight of National Air Traffic Services’ operational activities at its two UK centres you will help to ensure that they operate to the highest standards of safety and compliance. You will carry out audits and inspections, reporting your findings and agreeing best practice recommendations and action plans to address non-compliance. You will also conduct and oversee controller licensing activities, including oversight of assessor and instructor standards, development of new procedures and associated simulations and the evaluation of proposals for change, together with the associated safety assurance.  Whilst leading on the oversight of the UK’s enroute air traffic services, your role will also include supporting colleagues in the CAA’s regional offices in their oversight of the full range of aerodromes-based air traffic service provision. 


You’ll be applying your existing experience and constantly broadening your knowledge to the point where you will become an expert on a whole range of operational issues and challenges.

What we are looking for

As an aviation professional with a civil UK issued European ATCO Licence who holds, or has held, a rating gained at an Air Traffic Control Centre, and ideally with Assessor experience, this is a rare opportunity to join the Air Traffic Management oversight team and work with like-minded, highly skilled specialists in a challenging environment.

Just as important are strong personal qualities, the ability to work successfully as part of a cutting-edge team and a communications style that is tactful and diplomatic that will support the essential regularity relationship with the organisation we oversee. Being able to engage effectively in any circumstance, influence others at all levels whilst upholding the values of clarity, fairness and proportionality, whilst achieving your aims, will be the key to your personal success and achieving the highest safety standard across the industry.

The CAA - Enhancing Aviation Safety Through Better Regulation

Respected around the world for our heritage in promoting safety and continuous improvement, our work as the UK’s aviation regulator influences every area of the industry. Crucial to our professional credibility in the regulatory, commercial and international sphere is our ability to provide expert guidance and good judgement and it’s integral to this that we recruit the highest calibre of colleagues.

Working at the CAA you will not only have the opportunity to be among other dedicated professionals but you will also be in an exciting and progressive environment that supports your personal development and aspirations for a fulfilling career. The location/base for this post can be discussed at interview, but the majority of the regulatory activity will be in the northern half of the UK. We are able to offer a competitive package to the right individual

Interview dates: 12th and 13th March 2018

Closing Date: 25th February 2018
