Each year, thousands of people from around the UK, typically from disadvantaged communities, benefit from Air League support; this not only allows them to learn about aviation, aerospace and the opportunities available, but gives them the realisation of what they are able to achieve.
The Air League’s unique and proactive approach is designed to prove, through carefully targeted exposure to aviation and aerospace, that careers in these sectors – and indeed in other STEM areas – are genuinely open and available to all. The inspiration, experience and practical training elements of the Air League’s work develops employability skills, builds self-esteem and wellbeing, and makes our beneficiaries valued and aware of what they can achieve.
Founded in 1909, we have a proud heritage and strong partnerships with large and influential organisations. As aviation, aerospace and space responds to the challenges of COVID, we are committed to supporting and equipping young people to aspire to join these exciting global sectors.
We seek an inspirational leader to become our next CEO. They will lead our very small, but effective, team, working with our Board of Trustees and Council, to capitalize on our relationships and deliver our mission. This person will be both strategic and ‘hands on’ – a self-starter, with a flexible, can-do approach. You will be excited to work with a senior and well-connected Board to help us meet our mission with enterprise, creativity and resilience.
