Training programme coordinator
“Listen and learn” is Mandy Bockett’s advice to new graduates starting their career with Airways.
“Our people are really smart cookies – listen and learn, and take your opportunities when they are offered, because everyone is pretty supportive here,” she says.
Mandy began her career with Airways as a training centre administrator on a temporary basis in 2013. Nine months later, she was promoted to the role of programme training coordinator, and then gained a secondment supporting Airways’ air traffic controller training selection product domestically and internationally.
Now, her role takes her to different parts of the world.
“I often work overseas supporting air traffic controller training and selection for Airways’ clients. I provide recommendations on selection processes, train assessors and support the assessment centres. I am going to Vietnam next week. Over the last 18 months I’ve been to Australia, Hong Kong, and South Africa,” says Mandy.
For new graduates this is a great place to listen and learn, and take your opportunities when they are offered, because there is so much support here to grow your career.
Airways supports Mandy’s continued study after she attained her Masters in Applied Psychology.
“Airways has encouraged my study towards my Post Graduate Diploma in Industrial and Organisational Psychology, which means I will be registered as a psychologist. Through my role I have assistance with my fees and paid study time off.”
Mandy says she loves the diversity at Airways as well as the team environment.
“Most of the time when I tell people what I do they are surprised at the breadth of what goes on here. There are so many options to grow your career with Airways. Airways people are all motivated to do a good job and I’m blown away by the high performing teams here.”
“In our team, we love to celebrate our success and we have lots of fun events as well. Pink days for breast cancer awareness, or blue days for men’s health, we all get involved and have a laugh when we can.”
