Role Description

Cranfield Airport has a wide variety of aircraft operating in to and out of the Aerodrome.  Aircraft range from light general aviation aircraft that require over wing refuelling, to Business Jet Aircraft that require pressure refuelling.

Currently, our airport has annual movements of circa 35,000 that includes business and executive jets, general aviation and rotary wing operations, and has an annual turnover of £1.5m.

In addition to this, the university, in particular Cranfield Aerospace carries out extensive research to design and test work for industry and the Ministry of Defence. The airport is also home to the Metrological Office’s BAe 146 Aerial Research Aircraft.

In this role, you will be responsible for carrying out aircraft refuelling tasks, the control of fuel farm duties and undertake control of aviation fuels as per Civil Aviation Authority requirements together with Cranfield Airport policies and procedures. 

Aircraft flying schedules rely heavily on ensuring that aircraft are refuelled in a timely manner and so the ability to prioritise workload and work under pressure, is cruical. You will be expected to work effectively and flexibly as part of a small team to ensure the highest standards at all times.

Our number one priority is safe operations in accordance with National (CAA) and European (EASA) requirements. A HGV Level 1 license is essential. The role is physically demanding with heavy fuel hoses and therefore a strong work ethic is vital.
