Job Description

The Role

You will lead, direct and guide this cross-department team in the delivery of functional responsibilities. In doing so, you will be required to allocate Airspace Change Proposal (ACP) activities and the associated workflow to the Account Managers, ensuring delivery.

You will provide management support across all Airspace Regulation (AR) activities and provide consultation guidance and assessment, on Airspace Changes.

Sound judgement and a confident approach are qualities vital to this role as you will provide advice and guidance to Change Sponsors and AR staff on ACPs.

This aspect of the role is fundamental to fulfilling the CAA statutory airspace functions.
