Does anybody know if NATS would consider applicants with ICAO licenses i.e. New Zealand or only those issued in the UK/EU?
You can ask but I think it's unlikely they would consider anyone without a European license. I'm fairly sure they don't run a conversion course for those holding ICAO licenses rather than UK or European ones.

Can't hurt to ask

ANS, as well as recruiting experienced ATCOs for Edinburgh, are now advertising for trainee ATCOs.

Good spot :P

I would imagine it will open again, everywhere seems understaffed at the moment and the numbers going through the NATS college are a fraction of what they were.

They would probably give you an APC or Assessment of Prior Competence ie a short course to determine your level of competence.

I think you would need to identify the national differences between the issuing states competent authority and that of the state you wish to work in.

APCs are slightly different in this context.

A quick email to SARG will answer that..... 😎

Vacancies

The GCAA Abu Dhabi are hiring.
Also Baghdad, once they have won the contract (Serco) and can convince the world's airlines to overfly Iraq again.
That's all I know of.
CAE Parc are still advertising for a ME (15) vacancies, but not sure where that is going to be.

As an aside, does anyone have good info on the GCAA salary and package?

Hi there,
I've noticed Serco are recruiting for TWR controllers at both DXB and DWC. Are there any folks on here working at DWC and could confirm what package is on offer and what the living situation is like so far from civilisation.
Thanks

First, welcome to PPRuNe. It's always good to see a new name come onboard.

Having said that, you seem to have an erroneous impression of traffic levels through Iraqi airspace. For many reasons the Baghdad ACC has no lack of itinerant traffic; ironically some of that is due to uncertainties regarding safety levels in neighbouring FIRs (Syria of course, but also some of the other neighbours).

The days of concern for enroute safety levels in Iraqi airspace ended six or seven years ago (although that could change again, as we all know...). Of course there are some areas in Northern Iraq that are of concern at lower altitudes, and some (few) that have higher levels of risk even at higher altitudes, so they are avoided.

If you had the opportunity / ability to visit the ACC on a midnight shift (not an easy feat as you can imagine) you would likely be impressed (shocked even) by the amount of transiting traffic.

Re GCAA in Dubai, there is a separate thread on this forum that sometimes catches the eye of a controller or two from The Sandpit. As with many ppruners who are actually on the front lines, they don't usually like to share info publicly on sites like this. But... if you pose your question on that thread and kindly ask someone with info to send you a PM, you might get a response.

PS: I assume you are aware of a DXB controller who is a former controller at your current PPRuNe address. Perhaps that person could help you out...

Cheers

Grizzled - You're a bit out of date with the Iraq overflight situation. It all changed after MH downing and public pressure. But yes, it was very impressive prior to that event.
GCAA is the UAE ACC centre. DANS is the Dubai setup.


ATCO2017 - If you are who I think you are, welcome back to ATC.

There's an AFISO position available at Leeds East Airport. The airport is in the process of upgrading from an AGS to AFISO service. Applicants must have either an AFISO course pass or be a current or ex ADV/ADI rated U.K. or EASA licensed civilian ATCO. If an ex ATCO, you must have exercised the rating privileges within the last two years. If you meet the criteria and want further details, drop me a PM. Thanks!

Fear not guys; the cost and manpower savings created by remoting Tower Operations into centralised Hubs will means less ATCOs needed . . . . .

Why ask here; you should be asking ANS.

Does anybody know if this is because at least one from Leeds has been offered a position outside the UK? It may be both but it may be neither.
