Trainee Air Traffic Controllers

£14,305.41 plus benefits*


Every day, thousands of aircraft travel in the UK’s airspace, carrying people and cargo to and from all

corners of the world. Making sure they can do that safely is a unique and incredibly rewarding

challenge. One that takes people with a certain kind of mindset.

You don’t need aviation experience to become a Trainee Air Traffic Controller. Our people come

from a range of backgrounds – many are recent graduates. It’s how you think and solve problems

that matters. How you handle pressure. And how you adapt to unpredictable situations, like

extreme weather events.

If that sounds like you, this is an opportunity to join a close-knit team and keep the skies safe. You’ll

have the pride that comes from doing such an important job, with benefits designed to reward your

contribution and the exceptional training you need to be at your best throughout your career.

What will I do? 

Once you’re trained, you’ll coordinate up to 25 aircraft – not only as they take off and land, but

throughout their journey across our airspace. Communicating constantly with pilots, you’ll keep

each plane a safe distance apart and react swiftly to changing events.

What does the training involve? 

Training takes around three years. The first few months will see you learning on simulators and

studying everything from meteorology to aviation law. You'll then move to an airport control tower

or one of our radar control centres and start doing the job for real.

What will I need? 

A passion for the job, resilience, a calm nature, good powers of concentration, strong spatial

awareness and, of course, excellent problem-solving skills. You’ll also need to pass a medical. As for

qualifications, you’ll need at least five GCSEs or equivalent, grade C or above, including English and

Maths (although many people who join us have A levels and degrees too). 

* When you’re validated as an ATCO (Air Traffic Controller), you can expect to earn upwards of

£50,000 a year plus shift pay of £6,500 a year.
