  • Alongside Inspection Engineers, deliver safety-critical inspections within set time frames whilst always maintaining safety of the team and aircraft
  • Prepare Risk Assessments, Method Statements and detailed Flight Plans    
  • Assisting in the maintenance and preparation of UAS
  • Client liaison

Opportunities for both Permanent and Contractor staff. Please indicate in the application which is preferred. If both please state.

  • You are self-sufficient with experience of working in dynamic, austere and safety focused environments
  • You are flexible, with the ability to deploy overseas at short notice for weeks at a time

  • You are able to operate effectively as part of a team
  • You have good practical knowledge of CAA unmanned aircraft regulations
