Not so long ago, GCAA advertised vacancies for SZC. Is it possible that they're trying to get rid of the "Agent" and will offer the contract to Serco ATCo's?

Maybe GCAA is thinking of a standalone future...

Hi guys, i was wondering if anybody of you knew how easy/hard it could be for somebody from europe with a valid Area student license to get a job/training in the middle east. Ive heard there is a significant storage of controllers in this part of the world

Hi

They are few positions around but they tend to focus on experience (+5 yrs) in most cases.

all too quiet here. Considering the rumored contract award to GAL, this thread should be smokin hot

probably more of the same old "hurry up and wait"

I'll believe it when it happens... What was that about waiting for the fat lady to sing?

They say "better the devil you know ..." but nothing could be worse than the devil we have at the moment!

You may be in for an unpleasant surprise. Wait and see.

Well???????

Well what has happened? Someone must know something. Serco still no termination letters, so guess that means they are still in the running.

Nothing has happened, which is the way it's been for months. Nobody knows or nobody's saying. Same old same old.

Verci....you sad sad little man

You didn't know what was going on when you were here mismanaging your staff, how the blazes are you going to know what's happening here sitting on some rat infested beach in Diego Garcia after being exiled for the past 5 or more years!!

Let the people being affected by this circus muddle through it on here and save your dated and pointless interaction for conversing with your ice cubes in your G&T

Lesson to other ex-MATCOs at UAE ACC etc. move on with your life and don't continue to stick your nose into business that you 1. No longer should be interested in and 2. You no longer are qualified to have an opinion on.

Rare rant over, now back to living my new life in the real world...

Most people in the UK would find that funny.
I've heard the Abu Dhabi marching band and they would need all that time for a bit of practice.
