At AFE we’re always looking out for those who have the enthusiasm and talent (yes – ‘The Right Stuff!) to join our team and help us deliver the best service to our customers and partners.
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 Account Representative
Airplan Flight Equipment (AFE) is a long-established and successful aviation publisher and distributer of pilot supplies, with a particular emphasis on flying training products. As part of our growth strategy we are now looking for an Aviation Account Representative, based at our Oxford premises, opposite London (Oxford) Airport.
The role will include working with AFE’s trade sales accounts (B2B) in the UK, ranging from small General Aviation (GA) aero clubs to major airline training schools and aircraft operators. With over 3,500 products in our range and a diverse customer base, this is a varied and interesting position requiring flexibility and adaptability from the successful candidate.
Specific tasks will include customer services and daily liaison with AFE’s existing customer base, visiting trade accounts and dealing with sales proposals/quotes. This is very much a ‘hands-on’ role which will involve extensive UK travel. It is well-suited to someone willing to work on their own initiative at times, who will enjoy working in the aviation business.
The successful candidate will have a demonstrable enthusiasm for aviation, a practical 'Can Do' attitude and a good level of computer literacy (as well as a full driving licence). You will need to enjoy interacting in the General Aviation (GA) environment and although flying qualifications are not essential, 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 ‘stuff happens’, are at least as important as any specific academic or professional qualifications.
So, if you are interested in joining the AFE team, please e-mail your CV and a covering letter in confidence to:
