Safety Consultant Job in UK – Helios
Company Name: Helios | Aviation Consultancy
Company Location: Farnborough, Hampshire, United Kingdom
Helios is an aviation consultancy, focusing on air traffic management and airports. With offices in Farnborough, Dubai and Slovakia, and clients all over the world, we advise major airports, air navigation service providers, industry, lenders and governments on improving the efficiency and safety of aviation operations and we also conduct policy and strategic analysis on an ever-expanding range of aviation topics. As a subsidiary of Egis, a global infrastructure group, we also access a growing network of opportunities from a parent company that has the aviation sector at its core.
Helios is a leader in the implementation of safety management systems for airports and ANS providers around the world. We are looking to add to our team that has a great reputation in supporting aviation service providers manage complex and novel changes to their operations . Right now we are looking for mid level recruits (2 to 4 years’ experience minimum) to help us meet our growth plans.
Applicants should have a track record of leading or supporting safety management activities in a safety related industry (aviation preferred, but other modes of transport, petrochemicals, nuclear, etc. welcome). Candidates must be knowledgeable in safety management practices such as those defined in ICAO Annex 19 or similar industry standards. Candidates must also demonstrate experience in topics such as designing and implementing new safety management system processes, conducting safety assessments, developing safety cases, , and conducting safety investigations and audits. Experience in applying these practices in an operational and/or technical domain is essential..
The key requirement will be that candidates can demonstrate the flexibility to transfer sound operational and/or technical knowledge into a consultancy role where influence, stakeholder engagement and project management skills become more important as measures of success. Exemplary written and verbal communication skills allied with exceptional analytical and problem-solving skills go without saying – we crunch a lot of data, we craft many reports for widespread, often public, consumption, and we deliver presentations to the most senior of audiences, so it needs to be right.
Our organisation can be very fast-paced and you will succeed here if you are equally ambitious. If you are used to large, process-driven organisations then we’re probably not for you (unless of course you are ready to escape from one!) However, if being creative, flexible, dynamic and proactive is more your style, then we want to hear from you!
We would expect our new recruits to be able to be based at our Head Office in Farnborough or our Middle East office in Dubai.
How to Apply
We expect a competitive response to this advert and so candidates should demonstrate their interest by sending a cover letter and their CV to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title of the email header.
