I notice that according to the Newquay job's person spec that a 'sense of humour' is desirable.

When I meet ATCOs from other units the one constant is that they're understaffed and unable to attract people to fill the empty seats. Absolutely everywhere - military, civil, centres, towers, home and abroad. I keep expecting it to blow, but somehow the creaky system keeps on scraping through.

There was big batch of UK ATCO's who went to NAVCANADA 10 -15 Years or so ago under their Experienced ATCO program they were running at the time. I don't think they considered it a success and have not repeated it since a lot came back I believe. There was also a handful of guys who went out on a separate thing and I know one of them them is still there at London Ontario airport.
