ABOUT TAG AVIATION

As the leading business aviation company in Europe, TAG Aviation provides unrivalled opportunities to build a career in the private aviation industry. We attract and maintain high quality staff and in return we employ people who are loyal and committed and who have a passion for client satisfaction.

Our Duty Officers are dynamic and agile people. Working in a fast paced environment, there isn’t a Countries’ Capital City they don’t know! No two days are ever the same in Ground Operations, one moment a Duty Officer will be briefing a flight crew on their transatlantic routing and next they will be negotiating slots in Doha for the World Cup Final.

To become a Duty Officer you will need to have a love of all things Aviation. Our aircraft operate worldwide, from Australia to South America, we’ve even had requests for Antarctica, so good geographical knowledge and understanding of different cultures is important. Aviation is heavily influenced by world and local events, which means a Duty Officer needs to keep up to date with any political or natural situations. Our clients sometimes like to throw challenges at us, so being able to think outside the box whilst keeping within the rules is a key skill. Finally, one of the most important skills is being able to work as part of a team.
