The Minister for Aviation spoke passionately about the importance of retaining and supporting the UK’s highly talented workforce. He called on industry organisations, and adjacent industries, to share as many vacancies and opportunities on the platform as they can and stressed the need to avoid an exodus of talent.
BBGA’s involvement follows a number of meetings conducted on Microsoft Teams with representatives of ASRP and the former aviation minister during the summer and winter lockdowns as it helped to help shape the proposition.
“Our interest is in helping so many colleagues who are sadly out of work as a result of this devasting pandemic. The whole landscape of aviation has changed inside a year, which has forced employers to make cuts in both operations and personnel. Business aviation has not been immune from job losses either, but we do believe our sector has the resilience to bounce back first,” said Marc Bailey, CEO of the BBGA.
