Head of Learning Development

Full Time


Circa £85k

Job Description

Since 2011 Padpilot has driven a paradigm shift in the quality of educational materials for aspiring professional pilots. Our theory books and instructor resources are used worldwide by training organisations and individuals studying for a career in aviation.

As part of our continuing expansion programme, we’re looking for a Head of Learning Development to lead the development of next-generation ground school learning content and systems.

We need a military, or commercial, pilot with executive experience in all aspects of pilot training: someone looking for new intellectual challenges; who can make critical decisions quickly and effectively; who can lead a small, agile team creating high-quality ground training; who’s creative, articulate, imaginative and likes to think outside the box.

You’ll need to be intellectually flexible and adaptable to rapidly adapt your military training skills to the civil aviation environment.

If that’s you and you’re hungry for responsibility, brimming with ideas and untapped energy and ready for an unusual blend of executive responsibility and hands-on creative work, then we’d like to talk with you.

Salary commensurate with skills and experience, circa £85k.

NB. You must be a qualified commercial or military pilot to apply.
