ICAO announces new 2015 opportunities for young aviation professionals

The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), in partnership with the International Air Transport Association (IATA), and Airports Council International (ACI), is pleased to invite applications for the second round of its Young Aviation Professionals Programme.

Through this collaborative programme led by ICAO, three Young Aviation Professionals will be offered exciting career development opportunities in Montréal. The programme aims to attract young talented professionals who have advanced university qualifications, supplemented with a minimum of two year"™ professional working experience in aviation-related regulatory activities and/or in the aviation industry. During the selection process, due consideration will be given to gender and geographic diversity.

"This 12-month long programme is unique," said Fang Liu, ICAO Bureau of Administration and Services Director, "as it will allow Young Aviation Professional Officers to advance their knowledge and understanding of the global civil aviation system within a United Nations international regulatory body, the airline and airport industries, as well as to learn about synergies between these actors."

The selected ICAO candidates will be expected to contribute to ICAO"™s work programmes related to either aviation safety, air navigation capacity and efficiency, or to air transport economics and aero-political issues, focussing on inter-relationships between regulatory activities of ICAO and those in the airline and airport industries in IATA and ACI, respectively. Each Young Aviation Professional will be guided throughout the programme by a ICAO subject-matter expert.

Interested candidates who meet the selection criteria are invited to submit their application at ICAO"™s employment site at by the closing date of 6 October 2014.

The target date for the commencement of the programme and the reporting of the selected candidates to Montreal is 1 March 2015.
