Air Traffic Services Investigator
Up to £75,500 depending on experience plus great benefits

The UK has one of the best records for aviation safety in the world; safeguarding public interest is at the heart of all that we do. As the regulatory body responsible for that continuing achievement, the CAA relies on the expertise of its people to consistently apply and monitor the highest standards. Its aim is to secure the best sustainable outcome for users of air transport services.

We are seeking an Air Traffic Services (ATS) Investigator to join our team. You’ll be responsible for the investigation of the ATS aspects of aviation accidents and incidents in the UK. The investigations will range from desk reviews to field investigations, producing reports and contributing to the prevention of similar incidents, whilst ensuring compliance with national and international regulatory requirements. You’ll also be required to provide expert knowledge and specialist advice to the CAA’s Investigation and Enforcement Team and when required, for accident and incident investigations with the DfT’s (Department for Transport) Aircraft Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) as well.

The ideal candidate:

You should hold or have recently held, a civil UK ATCO Licence with ADI and APS endorsements (APP and ACS desirable but not essential). You will have a detailed understanding of the investigations of ATS aspects of aviation accidents and incidents in the UK. In addition, you will need to have an excellent knowledge of the safety regulatory requirements associated with the planning, provision and operation of Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems and services.

You’ll need to apply your strong report writing skills to establish the nature of the ATS involvement, including any regulatory aspects and be able to make recommendations, if required, to prevent future occurrences. Confidence to deliver technical briefings to a wide range of audiences in a concise and approachable manner is essential.

Ideally you will be trained and experienced in incident investigations and the practical application of the techniques in the ATM environment, however training can be provided. You must have a good understanding of the requirements of EU 2014/376 and associated UK MOR (Mandatory Occurrence Reporting) scheme. You should also be able to demonstrate a good knowledge of the relevant sections of CAP393, CAP 493 and also the UK Flight Information Services (CAP774).

This role will require you to travel to various sites around the UK as part of the investigation work you’ll be carrying out so you’ll need to be comfortable working with minimal supervision and knowing when to seek guidance and support.
