VATSIM Online Operations Manager

Working with Fly UK

When you join the Fly UK staff team, you'll soon discover that running a virtual airline is more complex and detailed than you may of originally thought, involving an enormous amount of planning and hard work.

Therefore, in order to make the operation run smoothly, effectively and efficiently we have to ensure we have the very best people as part of our team. It doesn't matter which department you join or role you take - as a Fly UK staff member you are critical to ensuring our long term success.

It is essential that you understand that although flight simming is a hobby, when you become a staff member, you would need to spend a greater amount of time working to run Fly UK Virtual Airways, providing a free service that is second-to-none. As a staff member you will be expected to show commitment, dedication and enthusiasm in order to keep Fly UK a professional virtual airline.

But working with us behind the scenes is not boring, the staff team is full of funny characters and is full of diverse personalities, so each "meeting" is bound to be full of laughter...although we do always get something productive out of the meetings and working in coordination with each other.

Please note the following general points about working with Fly UK:

* As a staff member, you are required to assist the rest of the staff in helping members with general enquiries as well as specific enquiries, related to your role, received in our staff inbox, forums, your personal inbox or on the Teamspeak server.
* You will also be expected to attend our weekly management meetings (Sunday at 7.30BST), provide a staff profile which must be kept up to date and include a staff photo as well as show enthusiasm and dedication.
* As per the Fly UK Virtual Airways Equal Opportunities Policy, we welcome anyone to apply for a position, and although no past experience is always necessary, it will of course be of benefit to the applicant. We do ask that you only apply if you are completely serious about the staff position and are ready to join in!
* NB: Some applicants may be asked to have an informal interview with relevant staff before being offered a management position.
* Full training regarding Fly UK systems and procedures will be provided.
* All applicants should receive an auto-reply via email to confirm receipt of your application. Should you not receive this, please get in touch with us via the Contact Us page.
