Post by mark »

Hi all,

For anyone who maybe interested and who holds the appropriate engineering qualifications, the AAIU are advertising for an Inspector of Air Accidents (Engineer).


Inspector of Air Accidents (Engineer) {Open Competition}

Job Description

The Inspector of Air Accidents (IIA) will work in the Air Accident Investigation Unit (AAIU), of the Department of Transport Tourism and Sport (DTTS)

The position of Inspector of Air Accidents will involve the investigation of aviation occurrences in the State and the provision of assistance to foreign investigative bodies that conduct investigations into occurrences involving Irish Registered and/or Operated aircraft abroad. Travel, both at home and abroad, will therefore be required.

Investigations will be conducted in accordance with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) provisions of Annex 13 and relevant European and national legislation.
Appropriate training will be provided to the successful candidate as required.

In general, AAIU vehicles will be used for travel within the State and therefore Inspectors of Air Accidents are required to possess and maintain a Class B full driving licence. Travel expenses will be paid subject to standard Civil Service practices.

The Inspector of Air Accidents will be expected to work outside of these hours, including at weekends, as required by the on-call roster and the demands of the job.

The AAIU operates an on-call roster and the Inspector of Air Accidents will be required to operate as Inspector-On-Call (IOC) on the roster, which is a 24 hr/7 day on-call duty. The frequency of this duty will be dependent on the number of Inspectors available for the roster, but normally should not be more than 1 week in 4. The on-call roster requires that an individual be available outside normal duty hours in order to respond to notification of occurrences and general queries relating to the work of the AAIU.

An Inspector of Air Accidents will be expected to operate as the Investigator-in-Charge (IIC) at the discretion of the Chief Inspector. The IIC is responsible for the control and management of an Investigation and the completion of a Final Report.

An Inspector of Air Accidents will also be required to engage in flying activities from time to time and to attend courses relating to accident investigation both at home and abroad." onclick=";return false;

In addition Inspector of Air Accidents will be required to support fellow Inspectors during the course of investigations being undertaken and perform other tasks to assist in the smooth operation of the AAIU.
English is one of the six recognised languages of international aviation and the business of the Inspector of Air Accidents will be conducted in English.

The job will entail working in challenging outdoor conditions and therefore require the job holder to maintain a good level of physical fitness for the post. The successful applicant will be required to undergo a medical examination prior to being appointed to the post.

In some instances, the role will involve dealing with, post accident, traumatic situations.
Successful candidates will be required to act independently in the public interest and to make a declaration of any interests which might be considered prejudicial to their independence.

Please see the Information Booklet for full details, including the application process.
