With a diverse scope, you will operate across the Safety and Airspace Regulation Group (SARG), providing resource to other capability areas as required and delivering projects on-time, on cost and on quality.
You will engage both internally and externally and will lead on future regulation initiatives, whilst ensuring your team maintain an excellent understanding of future innovation projects and concepts.
Where required, you will work with our Legal team and Investigation & Enforcement Team (IET) to take proportional regulatory action against organisations or individuals that are unable to fulfill their regulatory accountabilities or demonstrate compliance or acceptable safety performance.
Where necessary you will work with other teams, across the CAA, to take proportional action in order to apply our Performance Based Regulation principals.
Developing the team’s capability, you will maintain and strengthen the team in line with our strategy and business needs.
You’ll collaborate closely with the training department to deliver this.
Given the impact of Covid-19, it’s likely that you will work remotely to begin with as we plan for a return to work within the government guidelines.
What Can We Offer You?
Given the requirement to re-establish our State of Design capability this is a great opportunity, providing you the platform to support and shape a diverse spectrum of UK industry in a time where innovation in air travel is rapid.
Over time your team is also likely to expand, so you will create and mold a team based around the skills needed to deliver on our portfolio of work.
Working with the capability team to deliver projects and continuous improvements, you will engage with both internal and external partners on industry matters with travel in the UK and Europe.
