CAAi conducts Safety Assessments of Foreign Aircraft (SAFA) inspections on behalf of the Department for Transport (DfT) throughout the UK. We are looking for two SAFA Inspectors to join our dedicated SAFA team, undertaking a programme of ramp inspections and providing timely inspection reports to operators and the SAFA Co-ordinator. When appropriately experienced, opportunities exist to act as a mentor and trainer to other SAFA colleagues, as well as providing occasional training to third parties and attending international meetings to discuss SAFA related developments.

Examples include, commercial pilot, flight engineer or licensed maintenance personnel. You must be committed to working collaboratively within a team and with stakeholders, to a consistently high standard. A flexible and proactive approach is required to adapt to ever-changing priorities and you must be prepared to travel throughout the UK, sometimes at short notice. You will also need to have good written and verbal communication skills.
