Full Time

Air Service Training (Engineering) Ltd, more usually known as AST, is one of the world’s leading Part 147 training establishments and has been delivering high quality engineering training to the aviation world since 1934.

AST has classroom and hangar facilities in Perth, Scotland and also delivers training at customer and partner locations across the world. Current activities see AST staff working in Kuwait, Jordan, Nigeria, Kenya, Mauritius, Nepal and India with business development activities adding more nations annually. AST is also involved in several aerospace academy projects which will see new multi-million pound facilities opening in the next few years, including one at AST’s home site in Perth.

Following a reorganisation AST now has a new role that offers an exciting opportunity for the successful candidate to be the Deputy Training Manager (DTM) for AST’s Perth & Scone Airfield facilities.

Purpose of Post:

The DTM will take day-to-day responsibility for the management of AST’s training activities, under the guidance and leadership of the Senior Training Manager, who will retain overall accountability for the achievement of committed deliverables within agreed budgets, quality and regulatory requirements.

A key part of the DTM role will be the scheduling of currently committed programme demand against instructor availability, approvals and competencies together with consideration of classroom, hangar and training aid availability. This task will include ensuring appropriate staffing of AST’s overseas commitments at customer bases and partner sites.

The DTM has additional responsibilities with regard to supporting sales & business development activities where “what-if” scenarios will be run in order to assess whether prospective new course requirements can be accommodated within available resource.

The ideal candidate will have a background in aviation related training and a track record in developing individuals and teams that can then deliver high quality services to customers, our students and sponsors. It is likely but not a pre-requisite that they will have experience of instructing for engineering programmes and / or have aircraft maintenance experience.

It is anticipated the DTM role will be a regulated post under UKCAA and EASA regulations so the candidate will also need to satisfy those regulatory requirements, which will be assessed through interview by the relevant authority.
