Looking for a job.....Said it before but still valid - what matters is whether they can manage a unit....un quote,


However ,with less than five years experience and one rating...the candidate must have shown some amazing qualities to
impress and pass such an intense interview? Wonder if he/she can sort Brexit out for us all?

Maybe no one out of the more experienced staff wants the job?

Besides. 5 years or thereabouts is plenty to be a SATCO.

NCL SATCO - 5 years experience I am sorry is no where near enough for a complex unit like NCL and especially with one rating! Successful NCL SATCO's of the past 10-15 years have hung in long enough to land a job in SRG Stirling and moved on. Others did not..... I would love to be proved wrong but I am afraid this is the out come of NCL not willing to pay the going rate for an experienced SATCO! Only a few years ago they only offered bottom of radar scale to a very experienced NATS ATCO who of course refused the job which would have meant a massive wage drop and again the job went to a handy MME ATCO!!

No grudge to be had as I donít know them!

Merely an observation that in my opinion knowledge and experience count for a lot (although I do admit it does not always guarantee managerial skills!).
In a roundabout way also shows thereís no dead menís shoes at Newcastle, Aís is so often the case.

I once went to an airfield which had offered me a job to find the Man ATS was not only single rated but had less than 12 months experience (he'd got his licence at a non NATS college, gone to an airfield, validated and six weeks later the airfield closed).
I didn't take the job.

I work at Leeds Bradford, although not in ATC, I confess. I can tell you the following which may or may not be helpful. It's an H24 operation, albeit fairly quiet at night from now until late March. Control tower dates back to 1967, last VCR refurbishment was in 2005 with Schmid voice switch. Radar room redesigned and rebuilt (below VCR) about three years ago - very smart ! Plessey Watchman primary radar with modern processing systems. A fair few locally trained ATCOs on the staff, including at least two Watch Managers. I'm not sure if there is a unit manager or SATCO in place at the moment. Also, LBA is on top of a hill so gets whatever weather the Atlantic and the Pennines can throw at it ! On the plus side, the airfield can be sitting in the clear while everywhere else is shrouded in fog.

HTH.

Some MATS donít hold any kind of license. Whatís the problem with non-NATS single rated ATCOs and Managers?

It would appear this airfield had a lucky escape.

I really hate it when those unwashed non-NATS controllers try to get ideas about promotions and management, I mean really - do these types not know their place in life?

Job Seeker - if you bathed last week then you're obviously senior management! What really matters though is the colour of your licence. Is it the yellow one you get after training with NATS? Or is it the yellow one you get after training in a non-NATS college? Hang on, surely that can't be right, must be different shades of yellow at least.....

I cannot find this job advertised on the IAA website. Where did you find the advertisement? I'm sure, given enough details, we could all find it, even if you can't provide the direct URL.

Cheers.

I have the flight information service officer licence. I don 't think it will be enough but it tried anyway. I always hope they offer me a training because of my previous experience in atc haha.
