Complex and challenging, globally networked, highly regulated and safety-critical – yet also subject to market forces and ‘shocks’ – it’s hardly surprising that few firms can claim to truly understand the aviation industry. We do. With over 4,000 successful projects delivered in 100+ countries, our experts have provided trusted consultancy and design and engineering solutions to major airports, ANSPs, industry and governments; improving efficiency and safety of operations, conducting policy and strategy, through almost every significant change in the industry.

Job description

We are now looking for a Safety Senior/Principal Consultant to join our highly successful team located within the Aviation Business Line and working across the full breadth of our UK businesses serving a wide range of innovative transport programmes.


We are looking for individuals who can use their expertise to take projects through the entire lifecycle from uncovering the initial opportunity all the way through bid preparation and delivery to ensure our customers’ expectations are met and exceeded.



The consultancy environment can be very fast-paced with opportunities emerging at very short notice that will require a flexible, agile approach to delivering excellence in consultancy services and meeting or exceeding client requirements. If this sounds like a challenge that appeals to you, we would love to speak with you to understand how you can fit into our team.


We have a flat collegiate structure and work in small project teams where our philosophy is to encourage you to manage your own career and time. You’ll have far more autonomy than our competitors offer and, in return, we ask that you deliver high quality work and ensure that our clients continue to come back to us (currently 80% of our work is repeat business!). As part of the business development, extensive client engagement and delivery focused nature of the role, you should expect to travel both within the UK and beyond.


  • Have a range of expertise and experience and a keen interest in aviation
  • Already have experience working in a safety management/safety assessment role with clear demonstrable evidence of having applied safety techniques to maintain and improve performance within a complex, safety-critical environment
  • Bring your safety and broader risk management expertise to an operational, dynamic and hugely varied aviation industry undergoing significant change
  • You will be familiar with different safety including Hazard Identification, risk assessment techniques, requirements management as well as safety argument production techniques such as GSN
  • Whilst you will be interested in technical work, you will also be keen to work on wider consultancy projects and other activities within our rapidly growing aviation and UK businesses



What's in it for you?

  • Competitive salary
    Pension contribution of 5% of your salary
    Life insurance
    Private healthcare for you and your family
    Health cash plan
    26 days holiday plus
    UK bank holidays
    Tailored career path with structured training
    Mentoring opportunities are also available, if desired 


We are committed to our planet

In each project we design, engineer and operate we care deeply about the legacy we’re leaving behind. As part of our team, you’ll have a unique opportunity to use your skills and expertise to shape a better future for our communities in the UK, and all around the globe.

Our commitment is translated in the work carried out by our Egis Foundation, which funds concrete actions to address the climate crisis and is focused on educational and social initiatives that will help in the responsible and sustainable shift towards a sustainable world.
