Aviation Job Search attends Flight Crew Futures and MRO Europe

This week, the Aviation Job Search team attended two major aviation events, Flight Crew Futures in London, and MRO Europe in Amsterdam.

Exhibiting at Flight Crew Futures for the first time, the team were on hand to speak directly with pilots searching for a new direction in their career. Held at the Hilton at London Gatwick, the event is billed as a “unique opportunity to get all the facts, career advice and answers in an informal environment.”

The drop in format included presentations throughout the day from some of the world’s biggest airlines, including Emirates, Aer Lingus and Ryanair. The presentations provided a comprehensive overview of current flight crew requirements, salary packages and employment terms.

Over in Amsterdam, our Managing Director, Dave Capper, was accompanied by our MRO specialist, Seriena Levi Johnrose, and Senior Account Manager, Natasha Metcalf.

Capper said, “It’s been another fantastic show at MRO Europe, hosted in a great city. It’s important for us to be at these events, meet with our clients face to face and to build long lasting relationships.”

During the event, Principal at ICF International, Joost Groenenboom declared that he expected “the global MRO market to grow by 4.6% per annum to $118 billion by 2027, up from $75.5 billion in 2017.”

He continued, “Asia is now a larger market than both North America and Europe and looking further ahead, by 2037 it will generate 38% of MRO demand. In western Europe there will also still be growth, but it will be relatively marginal, rising by 3.3% per year to $26.5 billion in 10 years’ time.”

Camden-based watchmakers breathe new life into deadwood

Camden-based watchmakers breathe new life into deadwood

How a journey across Africa turned into a quest for style and sustainability

London, 22nd June – When a couple of young entrepreneurs travelling across Africa saw an elderly street artist transforming junk into drums, ornaments and sculptures, they didn’t take photos. Instead, they took the inspiration for Mosaiqe, the brand behind London’s first wooden watch concept store.
Operating out of Camden’s historic Stables Market, Mosaiqe use only recycled and sustainably sourced woods to create unconventional dress watches that go against the grain. Though they’re now trading in one of the capital’s most revered fashion hubs, their story began a world away. Founder and co-director, Kas Fulani, describes the moment he found his direction:
“I was travelling through a busy village called Tema just outside of the countries capital. Whilst I boarded the Tro-tro, I spotted this old man sat on a pile of scrap wood with a chisel. Everyone was walking past him and if I’m honest I only noticed him because it seemed we were the only people sat still.”
“When I passed the same way again five days later, he was still there – only the wood was gone. He’d reincarnated the refuse into beautiful objects and now people were lining up to buy. It got me thinking about how after a process, one man’s waste can be that same mans treasure – and how ethics and aesthetics can co-exist.”

“Ethics and aesthetics can co-exist”

“It was incredible to see an elder use his bare hands and basic tools to take a material in it’s rawest form and create art.”
On returning to the UK, he teamed up with his business partner and got to work establishing a brand that would embody the values he’d seen in action in Ghana. While the Rolexes of the world pride themselves on precision engineering identical pieces, Mosaiqe take a different approach. Using natural materials, they create handmade products that – thanks to their graining, pigment and texture – are all unique.

“Ironically we’ve both always had an unnatural love for watches and a huge part of the enjoyment comes from creating new life from deadwood and proving that ethics and aesthetics can co-exist”

The watches’ neutral colourings make them a perfect match for all skin tones and styles of clothing. But it’s not all about looks. Sustainability is a key part of the mission. And though they may be pulling up trees in the figurative sense, in literal terms they’re doing anything but. In fact, thanks to their partnership with the charity Trees for the Future, they’re planting five trees for every watch sold – whether through their website, mosaiqe.com, or from their store at Unit 266, The Stables, Camden.

About Mosaiqe
Founded in 2012, Mosaiqe use sustainably sourced woods from around the world to create one-of-a-kind dress watches with a contemporary feel. Inspired by cultural exchange trips to places such as Ghana, Brazil and the Congo, the founders wanted to create beautiful products that brought real benefits to the communities supplying their materials, while avoiding unnecessary waste. They’ve teamed up with Trees for the Future to help safeguard tree stocks for future generations, and use a percentage of their profits to supply learning materials to projects in supplier countries.

Aviation Job Search attends the House of Commons

Aviation Job Search attends the House of Commons

Last month, our Managing Director Dave Capper and Manager Imraan Rasul attended the prestigious House of Commons reception for an evening of networking and socialising with some of the biggest names in the transport and aviation industry.

Over 170 industry professionals came together enjoying Pimms and canapes on the sunny terrace, including Chris Grayling, Grant Shapps, Leo Docherty and Baroness Sugg.

The event provides an opportunity to meet with ministers, MPs and other government officials who support and help in the endeavour to make General Aviation work for the economy of this country and Europe. The event, organised by the BBGA, and sponsored by Gulfstream Aerospace, the Close Brothers and Clyde and Co was hailed a roaring success by its organisers.

Many of the attendees were in town due to the Farnborough International Airshow which was happening just 40 miles from Westminster. Farnborough Airshow itself attracted the Prime Minister Theresa May who kicked off the event with a speech promising a “solution” which “respects the referendum result” and does what is “best for our global trading ambitions.” She was accompanied by astronaut Tim Peake who was also at Farnborough to assist with students interested in a career in aerospace aviation.

 

 

We’ve launched a forum!

We’ve launched a forum!

We’re pleased to announce that we have launched a brand new forum for our aviation professionals to connect, discuss and debate industry topics. Our ultimate goal is to create a strong community whereby like minded individuals can ask questions, share knowledge, give support and in some cases, make friends.

The forum came about after speaking to jobseekers during events that we attend (such as EBACE and the Dublin Aviation Summit) and finding that there was a need for a platform whereby they could ask other professionals in the industry how they got on the first step of the ladder in their career.

We’re hoping to attract employers and other senior professionals who will engage with our jobseeker community and give them the answers that they are searching for.

However, we’re not solely limiting the platform to just careers advice. There’s plenty of space and scope for discussions about anything aviation related. Looking to find out how you cope with flight fatigue? Or where is the best place to go on a three day layover in Dubai? Ask the question and other industry professionals will hopefully reach out and share their expertise with you.

Managing Director of Aviation Job Search, Dave Capper said, “I’m really excited about this new venture. We started a forum on one our sister websites ‘Cabin Crew’ a few years back and we were amazed at how popular it became in such a short space of time. We’re hoping to replicate the success of that forum with our new one.”
