Aviation Security Training Instructor

As an aviation security training instructor, you will be part of team who are responsible for the initial and recurrent training of staff who work in certain parts of aviation. Be under no allusion, it is a very important, and demanding role, but also very rewarding, your work contributes to keeping millions of passengers safer – few jobs do that!

You will develop experience and competency in delivering training, which in turn will enable you to develop your knowledge in e.g.  Cargo, In Flight Supplies, airport security, and auditing.

It is not a role for everyone, as you will deliver training across the UK, and undertake overseas deployment, which could be to any country in the world, sometimes at short notice.

We would particularly like to hear from you if you are already an Aviation Security Trainer with a CIN. However, we would also like to hear from you if you have experience in delivering any sort of formal training, or even if you would just like to become an Aviation Security Trainer.

Aviation Security Officer

Aviation Security Officers are required to have excellent communication skills, have an approachable manner, and be well presented. You will be responsible for carrying out all aspects of aviation duties, including body searching, bag searching and x-ray screening.

You are also required to be a self-motivated and disciplined individual, who is prepared, mentally and physically to deal with range of situations.

Depending on the type and location of the role, you could either be working with clients within general (private) aviation industry where the customers enjoy an exceptional experience, and with every flight a unique and tailor fit to suit their VIP and CIP demands, or you could be working at a UK International Airport where you will be dealing with a very large number of passengers, on a regular basis, who will present you with varying challenges.

For both locations, you will need to have a passion for service, will care enough to make a difference to a passenger’s day, and will take a real pride in everything they do for all our customers.

No two days will be the same!
