Wow. My flippant post is strangely accurate!

V-L how is the acquisition of Safeskys changing your day to day operation?

All you need is a validated ADC rating, an OJTI and be availableto start validation training immediately or in Jan 18 for a contracted periodof 4 months minimum.


Lady ATCO
However, salaries in Europe are very far from those paid in the Middle East. I am wondering why there arent more ATCO strikes across Europe. There are several pilot strikes already scheduled for this Christmas.

Maybe because there's more to it than salaries.

I don't do the controlling stuff anymore but didn't there used to be a (very sensible) requirement to have one year's experience using a particular endorsement - or whatever it's called these days - before being able to train someone?

Not sure.

The ‘lady’ I know of has been at Wycombe many years.

Judging by the Prestwick Notams, if you've got Aerodrome & Approach Radar ratings, you could start tomorrow .....

I assume that no bonding was added to the contract?

Or perhaps she’s a Prospect member and heard what had happened elsewhere?

Are they advertising? I can't see an advert on their own website or flight global.......are they really that desperate?

Most units seem desperate... especially those not paying what the market demands... (no idea what PK pay so generally speaking)

It's a 'he' and not a 'she'

I wonder if she is one of the ones who've 'used' Safeskys when they have had a better job offer with conditions. One joined and got Safeskys to pay for an APC, then p1ssed off elsewhere when they'd passed it, obviously had the other job lined up already when they went to Wycombe.

No 'she's' from WAP have used 'safeskys when they have had a better job offer with conditions'.

Maybe it's a 'he'.

In the current climate regarding vacancies, I suspect PIK are just being pragmatic. After all, if you wanted to work there, wouldn't you just contact their HR department & ask ? No point in spending money on adverts when, as Cleared for a Coffee says, everyone is desperate to recruit. In any case, given the uncertainty of the airport's future at present, would you give up your present job to go there without a particular reason ?

Nope, the one I know of is definitely a she. If you think it’s a ‘he’ then maybe there are two different candidates!

Bonding is a red herring anyway; paying off someones bond is cheaper than training your own ATCO.

Anyone know where ATCO jobs at Birmingham pop up these days, best to contact the airport directly?

They advertised at the beginning of December for ATCOs. They usually advertise on the airport’s own website given they are the ANSP.

Probably always worth getting in touch with any unit though; given most have advertised in the last year and the shortage doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
