Where we have an open vacancy, details are listed below. Even if we have no current vacancies, we are still keen to hear from you if you would like to join the AFE team. Please send in your CV with a covering letter and we’ll let you know if a position comes up that fits your profile.
Aviation Sales Administrator AFE Oxford Pilot Shop
Airplan Flight Equipment (AFE) have a vacancy for an Aviation Sales Administrator at our Oxford branch, adjacent to Oxford (London) Airport. AFE is Europe’s leading supplier of aviation training materials and pilot supplies, and publisher of aviation training books and journals.
This is an ideal opportunity for an enthusiastic and hard-working person seeking a career in aviation. We offer practical support for those who see their vocation in the aviation world and many of the previous holders of this post have later progressed their aviation career as professional pilots. Equally this job has a lot to offer someone with an aviation background looking to stay in touch with the flying world.
The role includes customer services and basic administration tasks, looking after our Pilot Shop, researching and preparing sales quotes and liaising with our customers, suppliers and partners worldwide - as well as working on projects for AFE and its associated companies. There will be the opportunity to travel to some of the shows and events that AFE and associated companies attend every year.
An enthusiasm for aviation, a practical “Can Do” attitude and a good level of computer literacy are all required. Flying qualifications are not essential, although many AFE staff hold, or have held, some form of pilot’s licence. Energy and enthusiasm, good interpersonal skills, a pleasant and helpful personal and telephone manner and a willingness to ‘muck in” with the rest of the team when required are more important than any specific academic or professional qualifications.
