WHAT TO EXPECT WORKING ON A PRIVATE JET
The Private Aviation industry can offer a very rewarding and lucrative career where you will become an important part of your employer’s life.
As part of the flight team, your role as private aviation staff will vary from client to client – private and charter flights require very different aircraft management – and you will need to adapt your working style accordingly. Flexibility is essential in aviation careers, along with professionalism and trust.
You should be professional and polished with great attention to detail, and be looking for longevity in each of your domestic staffing positions and securing solid references is essential.

PRIVATE AVIATION RECRUITMENT
Aviation staff recruitment may seem like a daunting and time-consuming task, but it needn’t be. We take away your stress of finding new aviation staff by managing all advertising, shortlisting and interviewing. We make sure you get the best candidate with the necessary key skills and experience by conducting thorough referencing, processing DBS applications, and we even offer a good probationary period to ensure they are the right staff for your flight. Unlike other agencies, we will only put forward candidates who match your criteria exactly – rather than send lots who ‘might’ be suitable, saving you large amounts of time reviewing average or unsuitable CVs.
Whether you need to hire aviation staff on a temporary or permanent basis, we can work accordingly to suit your needs, timeframe, and requirements. We have a full database of not just private household staff, but also experienced luxury chalet and yacht staff, as such, we provide a great selection of well-travelled, interesting, enthusiastic candidates each time.
In order to apply for some of these roles, you may need to have a valid UK working visa. For more information and to check if you qualify, take a look at our UK Working Visa Guide here.
