Overseas Controller Recruitment

#1 Post by LondonATCO » Mon Nov 14, 2016 2:18 pm

Hi Guys,

I am looking for a bit of help / advice please.....

I am a UK based Area Controller. However, due to being born in Canada, I have dual citizenship.

Do you know if Nav Canada accepts applications from experienced overseas Controllers? And, if so, the best way to go about applying?

Many thanks!

Hiring is done regionally now, so I think your best bet would be to decide which ACC you would prefer and then contact the training manager there directly. In Moncton ACC, I believe that a military controller did that very thing and is now on a specialty course. Unfortunately I don't have a number handy but I'm sure if you contacted the Customer Service Center (http://www.navcanada.ca/en/Pages/contact-us.aspx) they could furnish you with an email or phone number. Be sure you specify that you want the training manager for whatever ACC you are interested in. Good luck.

There's one controller from Heathrow tower currently training at Pearson, and a fair few ex NATS controllers throughout Canada, certainly several in the YYZ FIR. Do you know any of them? If so maybe drop them a line as there's a referral scheme running which might help get your foot through the door.

I am one of said English imports. Drop me PM with your details/experience and I will have a word with someone to see if there is any movement in recruiting overseas.
I know YYZ tower is short staffed on a daily basis if that's your preferred destination. Whoops just re-red your post and your area......they are short there too though.
The referral programme is supposedly friends and family but hey I might even know who you are....I doubt it though :)

London ATCO...send me a pm.

I can say that Nav Canada no longer has an "experienced controller program". However there are other ways to apply.

Hi,

Just signed up as a new user as I can't access old account. I'm a UK based tower controller who has been trying to get into NavCanada for several years now (Canadian wife...). I'm interested in any back doors that might be able to be opened. I'm mainly interested in BC+Alberta but I think we'd consider anywhere.

As I'm too 'new' to be allowed to PM, if anyone could give me any help I'd be eternally grateful. Even just an address to fire my CV off to.

Thanks!

Look a few posts back, kevenv supplied a link to the customer service centre and that would be a good initial contact point. Like he said specify which area you are interested in. If no joy pm me when you can as I don't think its right for me to post names and addresses on an open forum.

Good luck in your search.
