Tornado Jet Engine Maintenance Technician

Location: Middle East

Overseas Package: Circa £38k Tax-Free + Flights, Accommodation, Medical, & Recreation Facilities

About the Job

An exciting overseas job opportunity has arisen in the Middle East with one of our key clients in the Aerospace & Defence sector.  We are searching for a highly skilled Jet Engine Maintenance Technician to support the Tornado Flying Programme for our customer, based in the Middle East.  In this role, you will be responsible for carrying out engine maintenance activities combined with responsibility for training and mentoring activities in association with the requirements of the customer and trainees.  In this role you will be responsible for inspection, maintaining, installing, modifying, testing, troubleshooting and repairing jet engines and associated equipment.

About the Employer

Our client has a well-established overseas presence where they have developed a reputation for working closely with local partners to support economic development by transferring knowledge, skills and technology to add value and capability.  Our client operates as a prime contractor under a Government to Government arrangement which is in place to provide equipment, support and training to the customer based in the Middle East.

Key Responsibilities

If you are a candidate currently in search of overseas jobs or have previously considered working in the Middle East, then this role will potentially provide a great opportunity to take the leap with a well-established and respected Aerospace & Defence business.  As Jet Engine Maintenance Technician for the Tornado aircraft, you will be responsible for carrying out maintenance activities including troubleshooting and rectification. 

As part of a highly skilled and capable overseas team, you will monitor the production and timely completion of high-quality work, related to military aircraft systems.  As you would expect for a position of this nature, you will need to be able to demonstrate good cultural awareness and diplomacy to ensure that communications are crystal clear to maximise operational readiness and ensure safety critical issues are managed effectively and efficiently.

About the Person

If you are the ideal candidate, you will most likely have extensive experience of Tornado aircraft and RB199 engine maintenance as well as being a graduate of a military school or civilian equivalent.  To succeed in this role, you will also need to be capable of using the MIRO GOLDesp information technology maintenance system and have a comprehensive understanding of the Aircraft Operations Management Systems (AOMS) reporting methods.  Given the challenging nature of this overseas job opportunity, it will be important that you are able to demonstrate initiative to resolve complex technical problems whilst operating in a high-pressure environment.  Whilst it isn’t essential for succeeding in overseas jobs, it would be a distinct advantage if you have previous experience of working in the aerospace & defence sector in a Middle East country.

The Reward & Overseas Benefits

The package for this Middle East job is substantial.  You can expect an excellent tax-free cash package of circa £38k with a wide-ranging benefits package including flights, rent-free accommodation and 2 months leave per year.  With year-round sunshine, excellent recreation facilities, and first-class medical facilities, it is a fantastic overseas opportunity for either those looking to move on an unaccompanied basis or those who wish to consider opportunities for families.
