recruiting agency turned me down
At least you got a response! At the end of next week, it will have been three months since I sent off my application with the standard acknowledgement and with no response to my subsequent enquiries.

Should I take heart from this (rhetorical question)?

The salaries are identical, regardless of what aircraft type you fly. There is no distinction between an A340 Captain or a Global Express Captain. A Captain is a Captain.

This is one of the reasons that there is very little movement between fleets. There is no financial incentive to move from a "smaller" to a "larger" aircraft.

You basically just try to get on the type that you like flying, whether it is the aircraft itself or the type of flying that that aircraft type does, ie short haul, long haul, m.85 at 45000' or M.78 at 33000', big crew, small crew, load the bags yourself or have someone do it for you etc.

Someone with Airbus time (and possibly no bizjet time) is very fortunate to get the opportunity on the Global because a number of well qualified bizjet pilots have applied and have been unsuccessful. You should enjoy it if you take the job, assuming you dont mind not having a roster and being on 24/7 call etc.

I don't know the status of the recruiting situation as of late but I don't think its finished yet. I'll find out what I can.

Cheers.

Head of Ground Operations

Hi Amiri01

I have still not heard anything from the agency about this position either.
Anything you could find out would be good

Thanks OBM

Hi OBM,

The Ops Control Centre is still undergoing a reorganisation so there has been no movement on the Ops Manager position. I understand that it will progress when there is a clear definition of the role.

I have heard that the timeframe is supposed to be within a month for the completion of the re-org but ...

The situation is understandably frustrating for those who have applied, but hang in there...

Cheers,

Amiri01

Hi there, I wonder if you would be able to help with some info.
Once you have been through the interview it seems that you have to wait until a security check is done and then ???
If you happend to know how the process works it would most appreciate it.
Cheers

Hi again OBM. I believe the ops review is done and that short-listed candidates for the Grd Ops Manager position will be contacted after the Eid break so possibly as soon as next week.

B581, we are only recruiting Captains as far as I know. With the retention of the A310, that policy may have changed but if so, I am not aware of it.

To those that have pm'd, I will get back to you shortly.

Cheers,

Amiri01

Hi Amiri01

Guess what, I got an e-mail telling me I had made it to the short list!

Thanks for all your help
