Who are NATS?
NATS is the UK’s leading Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP). Every year we handle 2.6 million flights and keep 250 million passengers safe whilst in UK airspace. We provide air traffic management (ATM) services to 13 airports in the UK as well as providing these services around the world spanning Europe, Middle East, Asia and North America.
We’re shaping the future of ATM through our focus on ‘advancing aviation and keeping the skies safe’ and believe that the size and diversity of our business makes us an exciting choice for undergraduates considering their future careers.
What will the scheme involve?
This scheme is based at our Head Office in Whiteley (Hampshire) or in our Air Traffic Control Centre in Swanwick (Hampshire) however we have adopted ‘agile working’ which will enable you, where possible, to have the opportunity and flexibility to work in our modern office facilities as well as at home.
This opportunity sits within the Technical Air Traffic Management Services directorate and during your scheme you will have the opportunity to experience the business through several different perspectives, such as:
- Working with Service Owners to monitor and steer the development of the technical services that underpin our Air Traffic Management capabilities
- Working with Requirements Analysts and stakeholders across the business to understand our needs and develop the requirements that drive our future capability development
- Working with our Business Analysts to improve our understanding of how the business itself operates and improve our organisation and processes
- Working with our Enterprise Architects to bring together a coherent picture of how everything fits together
The team in which this scheme sits leads the development and evolution of the technical Air Traffic Management services to meet agreed performance and cost targets in support of our broader strategy and in collaboration with internal customers. We capture the requirements for future service development and commission design and change delivery as part of the overall investment portfolio.
In this team you will learn about where NATS is moving to and the services required to get there, and then get fully embedded in the delivery programmes to develop and maintain the requirements needed, getting involved in workshops, design and planning sessions where you can develop from a supporting to a leading role with the full support of the team.
